    Connection speeds

    Post by Odinbear on Thu May 17, 2012 11:15 am

    Last night, no summons, going on 15min 20 min ( unusual, even on our 1.5mb dsl here in the country) . Alla sudden ps3 network signs me out. I resign back in , summoned within 30 secs to a minute. invasions on every co-op ssince last night. Can't say I've seen this fast of summoning or amount of invasions since I began playing.
    Think they are working on some of those issues?

    Topic title... Connection speed affects lag, which sometimes IS BAD. WE HAVEcountry-fried Verizon DSL (tops at 1.5mb).

    What's everyone else using? Modems? Lol. Or T 1's

    Its also your ping delay, how long it takes to send and then recive back the packet from the server. 1.5MB is fine for gaming online your problem could be the distance from the exchange and that your sharing the DSL equipment with neighbours. Did no one ever tell you size is'nt everything!

    1.5 is not a prob. We do Netflix, etc. couple neighbors have dsl, but they cutoff the rest of our road from getting it. Was gonna cost Verizon $$$ to install more loop-length. I tend to see lag on 1/3 of my co-ops

    I got 1.5 download dsl. I dont get summoned at all for a looong time until one starts. I also see very few summon signs until a bunch pop up at the common areas after half an hour. But on bad days, our internet provider freaking trolls me with spotty internet. I sign out of psn very often. Those days i can only summon others, and i usually disconnect right in the middle of a boss fight.

    I'm in a small town that just got 1.5mb Dsl service and it works well enough for DkS.

    If you're having trouble finding or using summon signs I suggest restarting the game. Seems Luke sometime the game clusters me with players I can't connect well with, lots of failed summons and slow to appear signs. Restarting the game causes you to be placed in a different cluster and should help.

    Small town here too, I petioned Verizon to put DSL On our road, they did but now won't for any more, whew. Way better than modem, we don't get cable. Lol
    What made a difference ( or seemed to ) was a suggestion in the demon souls forum about port forwarding on the Verizon router. Still, though , when it rains that copper just crackles and sometimes Internet goes spotty..

    I swear the fastest is 20mbps.... that's the "usual" over here, the internet we're using is like a few years old now.. (I doubt I get all 10mbs though to be honest)
