    PC2 connection issues [pc]

    Good evening guys and gals.

    I have just joined the world of PC gaming I was only ever used to console gaming I have an Xbox1 x that I have been playing PC2 on for ages with no issues.

    This week I upgraded my pc to be able to play games on it as a few of my fellow racers have a pc rig.

    However I have been having non stop connection issues never had on the Xbox etc. Also my mate who has been playing on PC2 on steam for years has the same issues you join a lobby and will disconnect or sometimes youíll do qually and then disconnect at the race.

    It doesnít appear to just be us either as whilst in a lobby youíll see people join and in 30 seconds leave which shows they got kicked.

    Is there an on going issue canít be just a coincidence surly that Iím having issues and my mate whoís been playing it for ages has now got issues too?

    I have since forwarded all relevant ports on my router.

    Iím WiFi connected but shouldnít be an issue?!

    55mbps up 10mbps down with 7ms latency

    Any help would be awesome!

    Many thanks
    Jason

    try and avoid WiFi for online play.. it's considerable less stable in terms of ping times.

    There are a lot of people currently playing online (something to do with not being able to go out...), so it wouldn't be too surprising to know Steam is failing a bit..
    you could try adjusting the Steam "In-game server browser: Max pings per minute", it's in Steam -> Settings -> In-Game

    Ryzen R7 3800X - Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite - 16Gig DDR4 (Ballistix Elite 3600) - ZOTAC GTX1080Ti FE with EVGA Hybrid Cooler - iiiyama ProLite B2783QSU - Oculus Rift CV1 - Samsung 860 250G SSD, WD 6T Black, WD 2T Black, OCZ 120G Vertex 2 SSD, LiteOn iHAS122 DVD-RW - Creative 5.1 speaker system - Logitech G19 - Gigabyte GM-M6880X Gaming Mouse - Fanatec GT3 RS V2 + CSP V3 + SSH Shifter - Windows 10 Pro (64 bit).

    Second machine used for additional testing. Ryzen R5 3600X - Asus Prime X570-P - 16G DDR4 (Crucial Ballistix 3200) - EVGA RTX2060 - iiyama Prolite E2607WS - Oculus Rift CV1 - W10 Pro (64 bit) - xbox360 pad or Logitech DFP (all at stock speeds)

    HTPC - For testing of Steam Big Picture Mode (Hopefully from Media Portal 2) - i5-4590S - ASUS H81M-C - 8G DDR3 PC-10666 - Gigabyte GTX1050Ti - Windows 10 Home (64 bit) - xbox360 pad

    Thanks for the advice Iíll give the in game ping an adjustment.

    I know WiFi isnít the most stable for gaming however currently logistically I canít hard wire untill I can get a second router to use as a second access point closer to the sim rig ;-(

    Have a look at a power line kit, this would possibly allow you to hard wire
