    What happens when you get banned by utorrent/bittorrent?

    I just got banned from torrents by utorrent because i was using greedytorrent . In my log it says "Banned" and my download stays at 0 kb/s. I was wondering how long this ban will last for and is there any way i can get rid of it.

    You probably got banned for breaking one of the rules, like downloading an illegal file possibly. Look up online how to change your IP address and then try getting on.

    That is how they ban you. They ban the IP address from getting back on the torrent.

    If they are serious about their bans then you might never be unbanned. Time to move on I guess.

    I agree with Brad post.
    If you are interested to change your ip address means try to do the following ways.
    What ip address do you have?static or dynamic
    If you are using static,you can't change your ip without your internet service provider permission.If you have dynamic ip address,it's possible to change your ip address by using the following ways.
    Go to Start, Run and type in cmd. In the command prompt, type in
    ipconfig /release
    Then type in
    ipconfig /renew
    1.Power down your modem
    2.wait about 10 minutes
    3.power on your modem
    You modem reset by new ip address.Then you can check your new ip address at
