    Online Gaming On College Network

    Locked

    by ckramer ·

    I play RTS games on a very secure college network.I get disconnected consistently on what seems like a punctual basis. I also have severe problems connecting to other players to get games online. I know the network is firewalled pretty hardcore, but is there anything I can do to get my gaming experience back to normal?

      “very secure college network” does not exist.

      Ask your college’s tech support.

      Sounds like a connection lifetime

      You get your link for X minutes, then get kicked off for someone else to get a go. Possibly they could be studying.

      What am I on.

        Or maybe you are being throttled…

        Could be that someone in the School’s IT got smart and they are doing QOS and packet shaping to let you game, but not just very well.
