I know i know there been alot of threads on it before...and now its my turn apperently.

followed zoltanrs advice on port forwarding, internet connection is my own not someone elses and i live in NY not in the UK.

The problem is the download is crazy unstable 1kb-900kbs usually near 1kb alot of time at 0 too is this normal?, also ive never had a single remote connection i heard that might matter.

Any suggestions? >.>

edit tried turning off anti virus and firewall too

i found that when i had it opened at as the only window and selected as the active window it downloaded alot more stable and faster then if idid anythting that made it not the active window, esp browse the ineternet while waiting, or even have the damned browswer opened at max size and not actually doing anything, it would slowly drop to 0 or 1

Mine starts out at 0 for about 20-50 seconds each time and then climbs and usually stays at about 400 which is norm for my connection. From the time I put the game in the drive to the time i was sitting on a character updated and logged in was 38 minutes.

I've not actually noticed myself getting any remote connections. The few times the beta patcher was being slow i went right for utorrent and it was fast still.

Utorrent can be used to check and see if your network is p2p friendly(as in open for connections with a big green indicator or a yellow or red one if it is still not opened up)

Past that aside from having upnp turned on which is default on in windows 7 I'm not sure what to tell you do to from there. I would check it with utorrent and set its port to one you have open and see if it goes green for the connection. Also maybe check inside modem/router and see if theres a firewall in there. On my old router the firewall ignored port forwarding and doesn't generally work well with any setting so I had to disable it to get anything to come through.

Is it actually downloading at any sort of speed or is it just sitting at 0 99% of the time and doing nothing?


@ Wonder FFXI patcher was like that as well it seemed to do jack crap when it wasn't up front and center lol
