rFactor-Wireless Net

Discussion in 'rFactor' started by Darren Jason O'Brien, Oct 5, 2011.

  1. Due to Crap Ass Sales Service and Bumb ass Sale Reps, we recently bought a new house and was told by the Telephone company here in Australia that we have ADSL2 bla bla bla.....
    Well we dont even have Internet we were told later....(AARRGGHH).........

    So have to go wireless-for how long, no one knows...........So Im asking if anyone on rFactor plays online with Wireless and if so whats it like etc.......

    Id like to buy rFactor for the V8 Series/Cars and Tracks and apparently the Graphics r better as well than Race07/Evo.......

    I guess time will tell once we move into the house if the Wireless is any good. Im getting a new Pc,

    I know one of my team mates uses a wireless connection and he doesn't seem to have any issues.

    Although, by wireless, do you mean through a wireless router, or through phone signals?
     
  3. Chris, he means wireless wireless as in he has to have like a dongle kinda setup. Or even satellite.
     
  4. Sorry I should have said: Its wireless through the Phone Network with the dongle setup, Apparently some here in Australia do use this without problems, but just wanted to see if any had issues.

    I think Ill have issues with Lagging and dropoutall the time, but guess time will tell
     
  5. I have tried rF online through the wireless internet setup same as yours in India. It works pretty fine. I dint have any issues. But i think the ping will be a little high(its always a bit high in India no matter what type of connection you use).
     
  6. Hey Darren,

    I have used a telstra pre-paid wireless dongle from time to time and mostly had no troubles at all. Pings are higher than on my modem by about 50% in my case, but still liveable. Just occasionally (& only very occasionally) I had massive ping hikes. Only once I had a complete drop out (last race of the season, fighting for the championship, leading the race, DOH!).

    I hope this helps mate.

    EDIT: Based in Melbourne's western suburbs if that helps too.

    Ah ok. Wireless here simply means normal broadband with a wireless router.

    So I guess you have what's similar to our "mobile broadband". I guess it would probably give quite a high ping.
     
  8. ADSL2 shouldn't cause any issues, just get the correct modem and router. If your not around any large buildings, or down in a valley then wireless should be ok, but I'd still push your ISP for a wired line.
     
  9. I have wireless broadband and I have no problems. I have also heard no complaints from others about seeing me lagging either.

    Until we had cable broadband with a wireless router, I ran my xbox off of a vodafone 3G USB modem, via my laptop's cat5 socket, I still think the connection was better than I have now!
