okay I got the most fucked up, but consistent disconnecting behavior going on. This all started when I got a new wireless router, a netgear AC-1200. both my PC and PS4 are connected wired, not wifi.
when playing online casual, ranked, or battle lounge, the 1st two games will go smoothly. Sometimes there’s lag, sometimes there isn’t. pretty normal shit. If it’s just two games, either I win 2-0 or lose 0-2, everything is fine. But if it’s 1-1 and we go for the tiebreaker, I’ll always always ALWAYS get a 40002 disconnect either towards the end of the 1st round or barely into the 2nd round of the 3rd game.
I’ve forwarded ports for steam and PSN and I even tried putting the ps4 in the DMZ but nothing seems to help.
this happens on both PS4 and PC.
Last night I tried a battle lounge with my ps4 against my PC and while they were both on the same network, everything went fine but just to check I set up my mobile phone as a hotspot and connected the PS4 to that and the same 2 and done behavior returned.
anyone experience anything remotely like this? any ideas or recommendations that I haven’t thought of?
