ajpenn Posted June 25, 2010 Share Posted June 25, 2010 Apologies in advance for all the detail! I have a real bad problem with L4D2. I’ve played L4D and LFD2 from first release and love the games. However, for months now I’ve had a problem. When I start a game it plays for a while and then looses connection to server – not just that – it also seems to take everyone else who’s playing out of the game as well!! You can imagine how unpopular this will make me! I’ve had phone line problems and broadband problems and have had BT engineers (phone line and broadband engineers) out numerous times for over 6 months. They have replaced my master socket (with one that includes a micro filter – the latest kit), hub, the line up to the telephone pole outside my house and the connection at the pole, and today they have had a team of engineers (I threatened them with OFCOM!) checking and fixing the connections underground and the connections at the local server! I’ve also replaced my Ethernet cables and used several PCs and OS. They have done everything short of spending “a million pounds” digging up the road up to my local exchange. They have now fixed the problem with the phone line and my broadband is running at 5MB/S (ping is about 40, jitter 1) and all the tests, using the latest equipment, are fine. However, I still have the same problem with Steam. I can’t think what else to do and maybe the line problems are just a coincidence. Has anyone had a similar problem – i.e. losing everyone’s connection to server at the same time (hopefully the line stuff is a coincidence). Please help as I’m desperate to kick some zombie ass!Thanks and all the best, Andy. Quote Link to comment
