Yes, this game disconnects a lot, but it’s not entirely the game’s fault. There are a lot of things you can do to make sure everything is good on your end.
First, wireless or wired shouldn’t make a difference as long as you know your wireless is strong enough that the signal isn’t fluctuating up and down all the time. If you’re on the weak end of the signal, it’s always possible that your wireless reception is dropping out.
Next thing you always need to check is in your system settings to see if your NAT is open or limited.
If you’re on a 360 you can go into your system setting>network connections> and do a network test. That willl tell you at the end what your NAT status is. If it’s closed or limited you’re going to have trouble connecting or receiving connections with a lot of people on Live.
To open it up, you need to log into your router via your PC. You can usually do this by opening up your web browser and typing in something along the lines of “192.168.2.1” or whatever your gateway address is. If you don’t know what this is, google your brand of router. Usually the same brand always has the same adress used for logging in.
You can follow the guides here for a little bit of help:
But the easiest thing to do is look for a setting called DMZ on your router. When you find that, enable it for the IP address that your 360 or PS3 is on. Again if you’re not really familiar with networking you’ll have to do a little research to figure this out. Once you enable that it will remove your console from whatever firewall or security your router has built in and makes connecting to it easier.
I find the absolute best way to make sure your connection is good is to manually assign all the devices on your network IPs, and don’t use automatic DHCP. It makes it easier to firewall the devices you want and open up your consoles. I can PM and explain how to do that if you want.
Someone else will have to give some info if you’re on a PS3, because I don’t know all of the menus to go through to do this stuff on there, as I don’t have one.
