View Full Version : Serious connection troubles...

14th Mar 2001, 02:23 AM
I'd just like to know if anyone else is experiencing hordes of packet loss on virtually every server, or if it's just me. I'm not talking about an occassional hiccup here and there. I'm talking about long periods of time (around 5-10 minutes) where no data seems to be sent and none is recieved (after about 5 minutes has passed, I'll generally get disconnected from the server anyway, so it doesn't make much of a difference). Oddly enough, ping doesn't seem to be a factor. I get just as much packet loss on servers with ping times of 50ms as I do on servers with ping times of 300ms.

On a side note, the few times I've been able to find a server with acceptable lag and very little packet loss, I've had the time of my life. I only wish such experiences weren't so rare.

I almost hope the problem is simply poor coding on the team's part. If it's not, and I'm the only one experiencing this sort of thing, then it means the problem is on my end. If that's the case, there's really not much I can do about it. I've already got cable, and all the other broadband providers in my area cost a fortune.
