Download Speeds

Postby Tarvas » Fri Mar 07, 2014 2:57 pm

Is "Download speeds up to 3Mbps" good enough for EQ or do I need better? Trying to sort this internet crap out at my new place. Thanks.

It is good enough! I had around 3-4.5 during my time in China and didn't have any issue.

I played in Iraq with a 900+ ping. Scariness!

There will be at least 2 computers and 2 TVs using this connection. I don't know all the ins and outs of networking so that is why I am curious. If I don't want to give Time Warner anymore money than I have to.

900 ping!? I feel like it would be impossible to move with that much!

That all may be too much then. I only had my laptop and phone on the connection. But! I did have to play through a VPN, so maybe it will work.

It was fun. That were Tarvas got the bulk of his AAs because all I could do was headshot mobs one by one. If I tried to get cute by rounding up a bunch of mobs it got crazy.

You will be fine...If the TV's aren't using the internet they don't matter. Even if they do it wont matter you have enough easily. And I hope you are enjoying your new staff job there in Texas.

I started playing before Velious... early 2001ish and played during House of Thule. The last raids I attended with CN had clocks or something in them. CN hasn't booted me yet, the admins did remove my members access from the forums. :cry:

I logged in one morning a couple weeks ago and chatted with Thylik and OER. Didn't play though, would have no clue where anything is these days. Plus my char still has Fabled Plane of Time gear on (hat).... Not good. Not to mention 12 levels and 1000s of AAs behind. (I was always low AA when I played).

Did see that a lot of familiar names still play!

Im on satellite now, my ping is at 700ish always, the only thing i can to contend with is a .5 sec delay on actions like casting spells.

When i was on dialup ping ranged from 200 to 2400 on normal play.

I always got time for an old pal. Not Goofy though.

Speaking of which, someone tell Farrens that it wasn't my fault. I had to make an emergency trip to Florida and have been EQless since :P

Emergency trip? Did you locate a large terrorist cell in the nearby old folks home?
