Weird Internet Problem [Tech question]Follow

So, my desktop computer usually gets internet through a wireless connection using a USB Network Adapter (plugged into a USB slot), and everything about my internet is working fine now. Everything except FFXIV.

I don't understand how I can surf the internet but can't play FFXIV. I tried plugging in an ethernet cable to my computer and it allows me to play FFXIV, but someone else in my house uses that ethernet cable for himself.

It started doing this yesterday and I don't think any settings were changed. Sorry for another tech question, but I couldn't find anything on this problem. Thank you for any answers.

Can you give any more details about your issue?

What kind of USB Adapter are you using, who is your Internet Provider/what type of internet.

How far away is your PC from the wireless station? Is there anything seperating the two of merit (concrete walls, you live in a lead room, etc) that might interrupt signal?

On your USB adapter monitor - do you have full bars? Medium? Low?

Do you get any error messages or does it just not connect?

edit: fixed typo.

Linksys by Cisco USB Adapter
My ISP is Charter. It's cable internet.
My computer's about 10 feet away from the modem. Nothing separating them.
Full bars on the adapter monitor.
I get error messages, but I forgot what they were. I'll unhook the ethernet cable again and see.

EDIT: While in the game I unplugged it. "Error has occurred on the game server. (30002)1283970259,4432364,5
Then I click OK, then try to log back in and it says "13001 The lobby server connection has encountered an error. Error code: 3102 Status: 0"

So, I closed the client, logged back in and it let me on, but the connection keeps hovering between red and yellow. Oh, well, as long as I don't disconnect while I'm crafting again, I'll be fine...but the connection still isn't as good as it was 2 days ago.

EDIT: I realize now that it only is in danger of disconnecting me while I'm crafting...I think other than that, it won't disconnect me.

Myself personally - in addition to my roomate - have been hovering in the same Yellow/Red area even on ethernet was a fantastic connection.

This may not be related so much to your Wireless adapter as it it with just general congestion/server latency/etc.

There IS a large difference between Wireless and Ethernet (or can be) but I'd just wait it out a little bit before you try anything/purchase an ethernet cord.

To be honest, if you're that close I'd just hardwire if it becomes a major problem for you. I had to do the same thing for my wifey's PC - she was lagging just too much in another MMO so we just hardwired her (despite having good wireless connection) and it fixed it up just fine.

Okay, thanks for the help! =)
