Problems with lagFollow

I've aways had some problems with lag here and there from the time the game came out but here in the past week or two I've been staying in the red and yellow for 5 to 10 min at a time.

When I fighting monsters I'm running into the problem where I'm getting killed because I can't do anything.

Does anyone have an idea on what I can do to fix this?

I have no problems like that whatsoever, but I also don't have DC problems either so I'm not sure the reason people are having these problems but one thing comes to mind when I was playing FFXI I use to have lag and disconnection problems early on and I ended up buying a new router which completely got rid of them...I'm not saying jump out and buy a new router but it could be a possibility - is your internet connection stable? is someone stealing it from you (i.e., is it password protected, does it slow down on occasion? etc.)..if you have problems like this I would look there first.

I did have a problem a year ago with my wireless being on and someone else using it but I've turned wireless off.

I don't download when playing on the game.
I don't run the game in full screen. I like to jump on the net and look up items. But I don't know if that could be hurting me any or not.

My router is around 3 years old from verizon. can I buy something other than what they game me?

I use windowed mode it wont hurt your connection. As for verizon I'm not sure but if its a router you should be ok with any choice of your own - if its a modem on the other hand they might have a special kind for their service specifically.

I am having the same problem. In fact, it is happening right now. I have tested my internet speed, and it's actualy better than it's ever been at the moment. My browzer loads quickly, downloads are lightning quick, but i cannot stay connected to the FFXIV servers. Im almost constantly in the orange/red. I get killed by weak crappy mobs, and fail easy guildleves because of it. Im realy confused.
Any help would be soooo appreciated.

I think there may be a new bug with the latest patch. I'm having problems from time to time as well. Are you guys using controller? I've found the lag doesn't happen as much if I use the keyboard to impliment an attack.

A friend of mine suggested that it may be a bug after the patch. I use a keyboard exclusively, because i cant seem to get my PS3 controller to work on my PC. Meh.

I do use a keyboard.
I went home today and changed some of my game setting, and it seemed to help but i was on at 9am so that might be the reason.
