  1. Hi.
    I have problem losting connection playing race07.
    I use router and model is huawei b593 and im using mobile connection ​
    3G (DC-HSPA+).​

    Ports is forwardet as portforward.com guide says.
    Steam Client TCP 27014-27050
    UDP 3478, 4379-4380, 27000-27030

    Called to connection provider and everything should be ok.
    I have windows 7 ultimate
    Everything updated
    What i can do?

    There's your reason. Mobile connections are unreliable and tend to have micro disconnects. Get a wired connection and your issues will be gone.​

  3. No no man its not that. I changed router and connection to faster and worked while.
    Now i think its that b593 and settings cuz ports dont open and those should.
    I know wired have better ping but nothing else.

    Faster doesn't mean more stable / stable at all.

    You only have to open ports if you want to operate a dedicated server, no?
    Definitly go wired connection, just ask Nick Deely and others that have tried moblie / wireless!
    As Tom says, speed is not big. I'm 6.2 / .94, 27 ping in the USA and no problem on RD servers in EU!

  6. 3G is the issue. I had a 1 Mbps line in the beginning, and it was much more stable than my 3G which could reach 15Mbps.

    You get a lot of packet loss and latency on 3G, which is not ideal.

    But I understand that it is the only option for some people, as it is sometimes more affordable.
  7. Wireless can be good for gaming, but 3G or wireless mobile is just damm right bad for gaming.

    Wired is very stable, doesn't matter how fast your connection is :)
