Connection Woes

Posted by on Jul 1, 2009 in Commentary |

The past two weeks have been hell for me WoW-wise because of my Internet problems. My lat would reach 6k to 12k and I’d get disconnected shortly thereafter. I spent a lot of time troubleshooting the problem and at the end of the first week, I thought I solved it by replacing the LAN card. It was actually more of a workaround than a real solution so I knew there was something more to the problem. After running into the same issues I was able to isolate it down to one thing: my modem. I had it replaced two days later and also bought a wireless router over the weekend. I then spent another night making the modem, the router and the wi-fi connection work and here I am now. So far things have been stable. This week’s heroic Ulduar run will verify that.
