Whenever I use BitTorrent and download at maximum speed(2mb/s) I get a BSOD with the main error being:

DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

I have a file that might help describe the problem called "040812-34304-01.dmp" from the Minidump folder. I've attached the file into the Attachments for this thread.

I'm using a USB Network Card(Wireless N300 USB Adapter, 5dBi). It's connected through a USB extension if that matters.

What I've currently done is:
Update drivers for my Network Card.
If I limit the speed to like 300kb/s I can download just fine.
Using another card(D-Link DWA-125 150Mbps Wireless N USB Adapter: Amazon.ca: Electronics) I can download just fine. This card however only goes up to 900 kb/s download whereas my other card can go to 2.6mb/s.

Well, I don't get the BSOD when downloading a normal download because it doesn't get high enough speeds. Anyone know a way to download at maximum speed without Torrenting?

Most servers are Throttled to a speed due to the amount of traffic and simultaneous downloads that are required of them, You will be lucky to find a Direct Download that will fully use your connection speed. If you need to test your speed I can suggest: Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test

Have you uninstalled Bit torrent from your system? We cannot help you any further on your BSOD issue until you have.

Ok,

After looking at your dump file it seems as if your BSOD's are caused by: RTL8192cu.sys
Looking into it further I see this file controls your Realtek RTL8192C USB NDIS Driver.

If you cannot get another BSOD when uninstalling Bit Torrent.... you have found your solution.

It is the driver for your Realtek RTL8192C PCI-E 802.11B/G/N 300M Wireless NIC,
More specificity the USB 2.0 Adapter for it. If you don't use it uninstall the driver.

Thanks,
Altie

I'm not sure how that got there.. o_o

I only ever used two internet cards on this computer. Heck, I even reformatted like 3 days ago in an attempt to fix this.

Anyway, thanks for helping! Also, I love your ASUS ROG Starcraft II tournament.

It's quite possible that your Wireless USB network device uses a Realtek chipset and drivers (I can't currently reach the Encore site to verify).

That driver is still being flagged as the cause here, the Realtek driver updater for it should be here: Realtek BUT before you update that, see below * - we may need to have you download the Realtek installer then completely remove the current device and uninstall all the related install and drivers.

* I see another network/security related file that's quite old: anodlwfx.sys, this driver usually belongs to an antivirus program and is likely to be causing problems. Please go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers and locate the anodlwfx.sys driver there.

Right click on it, select Properties, then select the Details tab. Then please let us know the information about the File description and product name (to help us in identifying the source of this file - it may be part of the Encore installation?).

I had updated the Realtek and I could download at maximum speeds without a BSOD. After restarting my computer, this occurred.

anodlwfx.sys appears pretty anonymous, Virustotal gave me no further info on it, given that it looks like it could be implicated and it looks like it duplicates the work of a standard Windows driver, I think it should be uninstalled, removed or renamed.

@A1tecice, what do you think the safest option is? Is there a preferred method?

Should I try to move it from that folder and then try to invoke a BSOD?

Let's wait to see if we get a second opinion before deciding which route to take - if no one comes up with a tried and tested plan in a couple of hours or so, bump the topic and I'll revisit and make a call on it

Hmmm the only things i can find on anodlwfx.sys say caution.
Quote:
The anodlwfx.sys file can be a legitimate system file or a disguised threat to the computer as it is very easy for malicious threats to disguise themselves as genuine anodlwfx.sys file and cause harm to your system. Once the anodlwfx.sys is infected, it will wantonly attack your computer; delete necessary system files without letting you know, making the computer run improperly.
source:anodlwfx.sys error troubleshooting ? How to diagnose and fix anodlwfx.sys error?.

But what makes me think its the original safe driver is the date in that printscreen "3/6/2009"... Plus the reported file size is indeed 15.5KB so its not an unusual size.

Source:anodlwfx.sys Details. Is this file safe? Check the directory

So i cant suggest we delete it/ append .old to it as I don't think that's the true cause of it.
