Problem? Lodestone and GameFollow

Hey everyone,

I don't know if anyone has noticed but the Lodestone main page (not character main page) is completely bugged out at the moment... wonder what's caused that (images included, is anyone else getting this display?), but also I keep getting an issue in game.

Here are the images:

Now, I don't know whether they are related but when I'm in game, I start to get some "interference" type noises come through my speakers, while this is occuring the game starts to jitter (and slow down). Eventually, I will get the Red Circle (R0) and be disconnected from the game, but for some reason it also disconnects my from my internet connection.

Does anyone have any ideas whats causing this? I'm thinking faulty Wireless card here, but I'm not sure as im not very tech savvy.

Thanks ^^

Works fine for me. You'll have to excuse me for not clicking your links though. No offense.

Especially since my photobucket link looks a little different.

In most browsers if you hover over the links, you can see the exact path in the bottom bar. By eyeballing it you can tell whether or not it is malicious - in this case it is not.

It looks like a scripting issue on their end. EDIT: Could also just be us with Win7 and various browsers. I have all kinds of weird **** all the time - I wouldn't worry about it. It will get corrected someday.

Hopefully.

I wasn't implying that the links are malicious. Only that i don't go around blind clicking links that look different than what i am used to. Hence the polite response over the Warning response.

Yeah, I just wanted to confirm I wasn't the only one experiencing this issue with the Lodeston (I have tried both IE and Firefox to have it display the same).

Can anyone help me with my Network issue in game?

Well, not to start a war or anything, but you could have also just checked the links out and not bothered to comment at all.

Commenting on it was just kind of... Well it just came off the wrong way, at least to me.

And yet another edit!

The noise sounds like some sort of EMI and it could very well be a failing network card. Can you plug up to the wired network and see if you get the same symptoms? That would probably isolate it.

Thanks for responding,

I've tried isolating the problem by connecting the wired card, it worked with that method. Unfortunatly I live in a 3 story house and my office is on the top floor, and the router is on the bottom, so its not a viable option to have it connected like that.

Um... My computer came from dell, and it's a WLAN PCIe DW1525, I've just contacted Dell to get it sorted (I live in the UK, so I guess a phonecall will occur tommorow)... Has anyone else had an issue with this type of Card?

You don't have an AT&T or other GSM phone sitting by your laptop do you? Sometimes they re-negotiate a connection with the towers and that can cause wierd sounds to come from your speakers. It freaks people out when I walk by a tv and they hear it over the speakers. I usually tell them it's an alien signal or the KGB spying on me. My guess is it might also mess with your wireless signal. By the way, what does the signal sound like? Beeps, clicks, or static?

Can you provide some more details about the router you're using as well? Is it Wireless B, G, or N? What's the brand?

Also try this: go to your command prompt (Start-> Run -> cmd.exe or type cmd in the search bar for windows 7). When the command prompt comes up, type the following: ipconfig
Write down the Default Gateway listed.

Then type this: ping <enter your default gateway here> /t

It will ping your router over and over. If you see a lot of "Request timed out." that means your signal to the router is low. In the replies look for the "time = ###ms". The lower numbers the better, but if you're getting over about say 50ms on them I'd also suspect the signal is too low.

I'm not saying the network card isn't failing, that's certainly a possibility. Just in my experience they usually die quickly and suddenly rather than squeak until they finally die a painful death.

No I dont, the only thing (about 3 meters) near the computer is the Wii and PlayStation 3 which are off.

The sound is like a crackling noise, and it comes across the speakers. I just pinged my Default Gateway and the responses were in 1~2ms which is odd. The wireless is under "N" and is a BT HomeHub2.

Thanks for your time :)
