Re: Connection drops every minute or so.

As was said by imjolly in his earlier post itlooks likeyour problem is a wirelessone as suggested download insidderand check for any nearby possible wireless activity if you do then you need to move your wireless channel to either to an unused one or one with the weakest wireless signal on you could also try switching your hub wireless to b/g rather than b/g/n and see if that improves the connection

Re: Connection drops every minute or so.

 

I did, its just a bunch of routers to me. I changed my channel to 12 as nothing else is using that (13 was busy). 
I will change to b/g in the morning and see if it makes any difference. The problem with this problem is that it isn't always constant.

Earlier I was using skype and it worked fine however playing poker on pokerstars I would have the same reccuring problem. As the connection was dropping I could still hear and talk on skype fine.

 

Finally, my event log goes like this -

01:39:15  24 OctUPnP action 'DeletePortMapping' from ip=192.168.1.82 (Success)
01:39:14  24 OctUPnP action 'AddPortMapping' from ip=192.168.1.82 (Success)

01:02:04  24 OctUPnP action 'DeletePortMapping' from ip=192.168.1.82 (Success)
01:02:03  24 OctUPnP action 'AddPortMapping' from ip=192.168.1.82 (Success)

 
Just saying, as the things i'm talking about use UPnP maybe this is the problem? Even though i think it is definitely more constant than what happens above.

Thanks!

Re: Connection drops every minute or so.

Well I notice it when playing PS3 and when i'm playing Online poker. These all require constant streaming. 

The biggest annoyance I find though is that the problem isnt constant. It was happening earlier (like 1ish) but now its just fine.. disappeared. I don't think i've changed anything in the house between those times!

Re: Connection drops every minute or so.

The biggest problem I find is that this problem is not constant and I can't identify a variable which causes it.

 

Just then it was doing it for a game on cod, then it was fine, then about 20 minutes later it did it again.

Re: Connection drops every minute or so.

Hi that is why I suggested using an Ethernet connection if your connection then remains stable then the problem is wireless based that is the only way to eliminate your problem then you can research the wireless problem more closely

Re: Connection drops every minute or so.

Ok its been a while, sorry. Basically what I can tell you now is that I experienced this problem with the Ethernet cable plugged in so we can eliminate the wireless.

 

The problem is still intermittent and generally temporarily fixed by restarting the router.

 

Another development if any of you are familiar with COD - When I get host on Black Ops its fine for me, however my mate gets the EXACT same problem I do. The opposite occurs as well, so when he gets host it happens to me!

 

Thanks.

Re: Connection drops every minute or so.

hi that sound more like a games server problem then to do with your connection also worth rechecking all the PS3 settings in case any error has occurred in them

Re: Connection drops every minute or so.

No, because I experience this problem on SKYPE. Its either router based or line based I think.
