    I need help. I can't torrent anything at all. My torrent client is qBittorrent and here is the problem:
    >The number of DHT nodes is 0 and I have no direct connections.
    >Trackers are timed out and there are no peers.
    I have this problem both on my laptop and desktop computer. Is there a way to fix this?

    Also, my IP is dynamic, so port forwarding is impossible. Do I have to give you my settings?

    No it's not, 99% of people have dynamic IP, costs a fortune to get a static IP and generally only businesses will get them

    That's what UPnP in the router is for

    Well, internet wires in my area are not optical and getting a static IP costs maybe a fortune.

    Why shouldn't it be possible to port forward?
    Dynamic IP addresses just means that it changes from time to time.

    Enable UPnP. Since ports are randomized per default UPnP adjusts forwarding

    I don't know. I reinstalled Windows before I installed qBittorrent. Now I have the problem again for some reason.

    Now I saw that DHT number is growing to 3 and shrinking back to 0.
