Default Bad router settings, or just a bad ISP? - 09-09-2006, 02:03 | posts: 661

Ok, well ever since my upgrade to good internet (See you in hell direcway!) I have had issues with connecting to certain people, and servers over the internet.

Now none of these are really important things, just in game servers refuse me about 25% of the time, and over hamachi it's a crap shoot as to what friends I can and cannot connect to. To top it off, it seems the friends I can/can't connect to changes daily.

I can also not see 99.9999% of the servers in Steam games, like in CSS, only a total of 3 servers come through at times, although in this case I can connect to some of them via friends in Xfire.

I would also like to note that I have been using the same router with both ISP's (with direcway I never had an issue with talking to specific servers)

And the whois info on my IP, says its run by Qwest. If that makes a difference. (And the connection I assume is split up and sold via "DesertInet" to me and other people where I live.)
