  13. Unfortunately not :thumbsdown: I’ll be out until further notice.

    I was already gutted at having to miss this one (love the track and there are always good points on offer due to the high attrition rate) but with my daughter coming down from Manchester for the weekend and spending Sunday night at mine after going to the Hammers \ United game it was not really fair to spend 2 and a half hours of the short time she was here racing.

    But then after the Barcelona debacle it became obvious that I could not reasonably continue anyway… imagine that lag from Barcelona \ Bahrain at Monaco :O_o: It’s not fair on anyone to race in those circumstances. It’s a triple whammy, it badly impacts my race, badly impacts anyone I am around (I spun Colin out last race while on my screen I was making a clean pass, may also have effected Eric, had the incident with Alex at Bahrain, etc.) and then I get disconnected to boot…

    My wireless connection is hosed for some reason… download has been through the floor in each test I have done over the last 10 days (2-3mb down and 3-4 up although with a decent 20ms ping). My connection to XBL has been all over the place. I get signed out of it pretty much every time I exit a game and I keep getting signed out of in game things like Shift 2’s autolog, etc. Even simple game and party invites are not working consistently. Took several attempts to join a race with Robert on Shift 2 this morning and I couldn’t even create a session myself so something is clearly screwed with my connection. Apparently my connection strength indicator was up and down like a yo-yo while I was chatting to Robert in the Shift 2 lobby.

    So bottom line is that while that continues I cannot reasonably carry on.

    You're not hardwired with an ethernet cable?

    Thats whats causing the lag if thats the case. Get a direct connection and you'll be fine.

  15. I've never been hardwired since I started and my connection used to be rock solid.. problem has only been in the last year on occasions but mainly the last few months where it has suddenly hit the floor for some reason.. something clearly interfering with it. Wired may do it (not guaranteed though.. plenty have wired connections that are still poor) and I have a length of cable ordered to try it but hate wires running all over the place and my setup is at the other end of the room to the router.
  16. What you could try to do is change the wireless channel your router/modem is on and check how many connections are actually using it at that time on a sunday as it could be overloaded, when I had my internet hassle just changing the channel from default to 13 done something, and finally just check to make sure the UPnP is on.

  17. I tried the different channel test last week and initially it improved on channel 11 but now it's back to being crap again. UPnP is on. The connection from the exchange to the router is fine as well so defintely something with the connection from router to devices over wireless. I did a test with a short ethernet cable and it was good so now just have to test with the longer cable to the Xbox.

  19. Peter try asking BT technical support to remotely check ur connection then make ask them to prioritise the Xbox on the router. Hope that works & enjoy the game. Don't stay away to long

  20. Yeah done that Colin, the connection is solid according to their tests but of course they won't guarantee anything on wireless as there are too many variables that can effect that.
