Same problem here. It seems to be worst with torrents tracked by the pirate bay. But they do eventually start. Sometimes it takes thirty minutes to an hour for them to get going.

most of mine are torrents which are supposed to be secure and private. still, i have a couple from mininova and piratebay and none of them are working either goddamn it!

According to my television, Macs never have networking problems.

I just tried a torrent with Transmission and got the error. Then I used uTorrent on the same torrent and it started in about five seconds. Something is funky with Transmission.

Luckily you can point another client to where you have Transmission set to download and it should finish off where Transmission left off. But you will need to download the torrent file again. But it is better than downloading the entire file again.
