    @stelephant please put me down as division manager and Texter. I’ll also handle data.
    @Skills will handle scoring this season. If you can take replays for the balance of this season that would be great.
    So that leaves host open and all backup jobs.
    Step right up gentlemen.

    Thank you sir. Just out of curiosity are you running hard wired or WiFi?

    Wifi. Wired isn't possible where my ps4 is and the router. Not without a 100ft cable. I haven't ever had any connection issues

    That may have been the issue with the lag in the lobby we were all experiencing last night.
    Let’s give it another shot this Sunday. If the group seems to be experiencing the same issue I’ll have the combos saved as back up host.
    I’m hard wired and rarely, if ever, have issues hosting either here or ARL.

    Wifi is not good for online racing in general. It can cause all kinds of issues in a mesh network where every driver is connected to every other driver, which is exactly what GTS uses to connect everyone.

    I have no problem doing replays or much of anything if I am racing.

    That's most likely why I experienced so much lag and had to leave early.

    We need a host with a solid wired connection.

    I’m hard wired, NAT 2, static IP outside my router’s DMZ.
    And Xfinity just told me I’m getting a bump up to 175 down and 5 up. Besides this past Sunday has anyone seen me lag?
    I could host. It would be better though to have everyone test the connection from their computer wired to the router and post them in our thread.
    Thoughts?

    Guys. It's a mesh network. Every individual is connected to every other individual. The host isn't treated any differently from anyone else in a mesh network other than they have the controls of the room. Ideally, nobody should be connected via wifi or other wireless internet. Upload and download speed can be just fine but latency on wifi or other wireless connections can be an issue to everyone that is connected to that connection, which is everyone in a mesh network.

    A 100 foot cat 5e cable is available on Amazon for less than 20 bucks. If anyone is running with wifi, I highly recommend that you invest in a cable and use it for any online racing that you're going to be doing. Your experience will be improved as well as all those racing with you.
