Qbittorrent and NL SOCK5 proxy not connecting to all trackers and yellow icon

Ok I decided I really dont need the VPN for torrenting, I mainly just want to mask IP from torrent swarms.

Now I succesfully setup the SOCKS5 proxy in NL. Thing is the icon in middle below is yellow (whether proxy is on or not) and around 40% of trackers dont connect or say mismatched connection ID.

I tried a few suggestions here at this forum and at qbittorent forum. Messing around with settings makes speeds unbearble at less then 5kb/s, now Im having around 300 kb/s ( this is a 50 meg line) on some torrents even yellow icon I get full speed, other I dont. Im going to guess it has to do with the yellow I icon.

These are my current qtorrent settings

UpnP/NAT ON
SOCKS5 connected to IP directly not host address
use proxy for peer connections checked
Use proxy only for torrents checked
DHT on
PeX on
REquire encryption ON


Router I tinkered around with, and no im not a n00b, UpnP is on in router as well. I tried forwarding defaul qbitorrent port 8999 TCP protocl and nada.

Any ideas guys? I repeat VPN is not being used, just the socks5 proxy
