I run a wired connection to the same linksys router and same computer using the same internet provider that I have used to successfully race online rFactor for over ten years. Over that time my bandwith has gotten larger and I have improved my computer graphic capabilities and switched from XP to 7. Nothing else has changed. I have no problems with any other internet connections.
What have you done to change the basic situation that caused many (not just me) to have problems last week?
I will add, in the spirit of cooperation, I will discuss the issue with my provider tomorrow assuming they are open on Memorial Day. If not, on Tuesday. Where is the HSO server located, in case they ask?
Ultimately if I continue to have problems and nobody else does then I will drop out. I don't need the aggravation and I'm sure the HSO crew doesn't either.
