View Full Version : Party Slowdowns/Disconnections and Dialup Access

08-10-2005, 06:51 PM
Hi--I use plain old dial-up access (as we speak my connection is 26.4k/sec). I play up to 12 tables at a time and normally this works fine.

Lately, though, I've been having the party/skins problems that others have discussed on these boards. First sign of trouble: the strip at the top of the table(s) goes from "connection is very good" to "good", "poor", etc. Then we may have some "internet delays 12 seconds" and "14 sconds" Then "trying to reconnect", connection lost, etc., etc. Or, the majority of the time it just fixes itself without actually disconnecting, and we move on.

My question: Can I improve my situation with party/skins by upgrading to a DSL or other enhanced ISP service; or are these problems "enjoyed" by people with upgraded service as well?

Thanks for your help.

I have DSL and have problems every now and then but nothing like you describe.
