    Default Multi-PC disconnect issue

    Hey. I'm normally boxing with 16 characters. Last night i've tried with 32. I got 2 PC. Everything is ok when i log in, then MS-Ping is increasing constantly and finally some of characters disconnect. You have any idea how i can fix this? May my internet connection cause this? Now i cancelled 2nd PC and it seems good with 16 now.

    Both PC's load fine with 16 each on their own, but the latency increases when you connect the control?

    Sounds like maybe your router is struggling to keep up. Can you keep adding one account at a time and find out how many it takes to start seeing the issue?

    It does not matter if i connect both pc or not. If i go more than 16, MS is increasing. For example, it starts 70-90 ms with 16, then i go 17th client,it goes to 100-110 ms.It goes to 1k ms like that. Finally some of them disconnect

    Sound's really weird, I can't imagine even that many accounts running stressing the average connection bandwidth, unless you have a REALLY slow connection.

    You think 8mbps is really slow?

    8 mbps is really low.

    F.ex netflix alone in HD can demand 5 mbps.



    For 32 accounts, id suggest getting like 60 mbps.

    Check your options from your local and/or other internet providers.


    If possible, step into the modern world and get fiber internet installed, its much faster than the old "copper wire standard" (copper maxes out around 60 mbps or so it seems: that was the max my old internet provider could offer, while being a stable connection).


    If you have others using the same internet connection...to watch netflix f.ex... that adds load on your connection too ofcourse.

    You sound like an ISP salesman right there.

    While I can't check wow's bandwidth use, I can check eve online... and we're talking Kbps. Games don't even come nearly as close to the bandwidth use as things like streaming/youtube/netflix. Id suggest OP load up his resource monitor and check all of this out when opening everything up.

    I just checked my network usage while playing WoW with a single character, .1 mbps. There's probably something else going on - hub or router isn't handling so many connections maybe.

    The processing power required by the router is something like <number of open socket connections> * number of firewall rules * number of interfaces on the router * 2, for a single operation. The SoC on the router has to decide where to route traffic for every single packet that goes through it, and smaller home routers just aren't designed for low-latency operations the way a good managed switch or commercial router is. The more expensive ones like the R7000 (NetGear Nighthawk) and such have higher speed processors and more RAM to help with that. Then there's the quality of the router's firmware that potentially just adds more pain to the mix. What happens when you start stressing them beyond their capability is usually intermittently higher latency (and connections that expect low-latency getting dropped).

    Some other considerations and things to poke around at: https://networkengineering.stackexch...traffic-on-wan

    It could be something really simple, but trying the easy stuff first (disabling QoS and WiFi Auto-Channel) are easy low-hanging fruit that might get you just enough to avoid the disconnects.
