    How to set up your Xbox for stable online racing.

    Basic Rock Bottom Specs

    1- Connect your Xbox to your router with an ethernet cable. This is Non-Negotiable. Wireless is not stable enough for online racing and you will get disconnected often from lobbies of 6 or more cars. I don't care how good you say or think your connection is.

    2-Go to the setting menu of your Xbox. Choose Network/Network settings. It should say Wired, IPv4, NAT Type:Open, All services are available.
    IPv6 does not work well for online gaming.

    3-Then from that same page choose "Detailed Network Statistics" and your Xbox will check your connection. Make sure your Packet loss is 0% and your latency is under 120 ms. It will also tell you how fast your download and upload speeds are. Most modern connections are fine for PCars2 which uses less than 2 Mbps even in full lobbies.

    Before you Boot PCars2 and go online to race

    It is important to make sure that you always quit PCars2 before shutting down your Xbox. Do not just shut down your console with the program still running. This can cause corrupt config files and mess up your cache. To quit PCars2 properly press the X button on your wheel or controller, select PCars2 and press the menu button. From the menu select Quit.

    If you are having issues and need to clear your cache.

    4- Hard Boot your Xbox by pressing and holding the "X" button on the front of the console until it powers down. Unplug the console from the power outlet for 1 minute. This will clear all your network cache.

    5- Reboot your router while your Xbox is shut down. When your router is back up and running, you can plug in and start your Xbox. This will give you the most stable network connection possible with your hardware.

    Recommended - Write QoS Rules for your Router. This might be the most important step
    The biggest problem I had when starting to race online was even though I have a wired 100Mbps up and down connection, I was using the stock router that my ISP included with my internet service. The problem with these basic routers is that they treat all internet traffic equally and you may be in the middle of a 2 hour, 12 car race but if somebody wants to stream a video or check their email on their phone somewhere in the house, those packets get the same priority as your PCars2 session. If something lags somewhere, your latency can spike momentarily and you can be disconnected from the lobby.

    I solved 99% of my disconnects by writing QoS (quality of service) rules for my router. You may be able to do this with your existing router but I couldn't with the router my ISP gave me so I purchased a basic gaming router ( less than $100 ). By logging into this router, I set QoS rules so that my Xbox gets the highest priority for internet traffic before anything else in my house. Whatever my XBox wants, it gets and everything else in the house has to wait in line. Even though you have more than enough bandwidth, it's the momentary lags from other internet traffic on your network that disconnects you in the middle of a race. Setting QoS rules eliminates this. Coupled with rebooting and clearing my network cache before racing, these were the biggest factors that help prevent me from being disconnected from sessions.

    I hope this helps. I run realistic long race weekends and it's always sad to see someone get disconnected 40 minutes into a race. Most of these are unnecessary and preventable.

    Happy Racing,

    Oh well, that's me out! I'm loitering around the A1400 mark. Unless I go in some GT3 lobbies for a while to build my score up... But where's the fun in that?
