    Seems that I’m the problem for tonight’s connection issues.
    I won’t be rejoining tonight. Have fun.

    I was so looking forward to racing again tonight but I’m going to need to get in touch with my ISP.

    Any suggestions as to how much faster/better connection will allow me to race in SNAIL without ruining everyone’s night?

    Your speed and NAT type are fine. But the SSID value implies you are using wireless network. Have you looked into going with a wired connection?

    When i changed my Primary and Secondary DNS numbers in the PS4 system when setting up internet connection, i got a boost from it and i use wireless connection. I changed my primary DNS to 8.8.8.8 and Secondary DNS to 8.8.4.4 and my Download connection speed is 48.4 MBPS and Upload connection speed is 1.7 MBPS. I noticed when i was using the original DNS numbers that came with the system that the upload and download numbers were much lower. I got this tip looking up on youtube and it worked for me just changing around the DNS numbers when setting up internet connection on the PS4 system. Just did another internet connection test and it jumped to 60.3 Download and 1.8 Upload.

    Great tip. Never knew about this. I’m going to test mine later today and possibly make the switch

    I did back in the day when I was wireless as well. It also works better if you reset the system a couple times a week. Great tip @racingchamp30

    Yes. Yes I have but it will require much wall fishing. Time to go fish. CD84ACA6-6199-4C3F-B743-43C5A52EE4D2.jpeg

    Wired is for sure the way to go... Hope you catch a good connection while fishing!

    This is what I caught but you should have seen the one that got away. I swear it was 500 down and 100 up.

    Nice! Is that wired speeds or WiFi?

    That’s using the 100’ CAT5e I just installed.

    I’d like to test it with last night’s D3 racers. Especially anyone who I interfered with and whom ever couldn’t see me on track.

    When I joined last night I saw 13 in the lobby. On track I saw someone leave the room and never saw them come back in. I restarted, got on track and had 13 racers. When RC30 started the race my count down was wonky, nonexistent really. My screen showed me and the racers in P11 and P12 stuck on the starting grid. I could rev my engine, change gears and look around but my car wouldn’t move. I quit the race so I wouldn’t be an obstacle and I presumed the other 2 guys did as well but while I watched texasmost hated’s stream I saw it was just me. I watched RC’s R1R1 replay and confirmed it was only me stuck on the grid.
    What did everyone else experience?

    I also read about some other glitching in the chat between races and that was after I left the lobby.

    As long as you have a consistent up at that speed you should be clear from glitching. Awesome down speed though! Nice job running your line.

    Thanks. Ran it high and tight. More back work in the crawl spaces than walls so it was faster than expected. MOAR racing time!

    Awesome! Now you won't be hindered by wireless limitations. I've noticed the PS4's speed test numbers will vary quite a bit at times.

    I had exact same issue in another lobby a few weeks ago. I was stuck on track behind someone else. Could rev, shift and look but no movement. It appeared that the people that came up behind me on laps would get slowed but eventually clip through me. This happened in 3 lobby races in a row for me so I moved on. :banghead: Never had the issue again though.

    AWESOME speeds! I'm cheap so my max down is 30. Works fine for me in Sport and Lobby races...I think.

    If/when you are stuck on the grid it is caused by you and at least one other driver on track not seeing each other. The results you experienced are for grid start races. In the case the start is a Rolling start, you will have no control over the car when the race begins and you will race as a passenger in auto drive.

    The first race I never saw you, after the room reformed I didn't see you until I left and rejoined. Shortly after that you disconnected.

    Sorry I havent been in for a while.
    I have been busy with summer. And this weekend is the Pirelli World Challenge here in Portland so I will be at the race all weekend.
    I will try and get back soon.

    Early notification that I will NOT be racing next Sunday, 7/22. Therefore, we will need a data specialist and backup replay uploader. SNAIL on!

    Just clarification for this upcoming Sunday, as other divisions are having a similar issue with some connections. This takes the lengthy discussion out of what to do, so that you all don't have to spend 20 minutes trying to come to a solution.

    However, I hope that all the issues are resolved and everyone can race!
    Note: Originally I posted this in April's D3 feed, as it was posted in recently and I am lazy and just clicked the highest listed D3 thread... :dunce:
