I've built every computer I've owned. buying every piece myself.
I've been reinstalling and maintaining windows since the days of Sound blasters and manual jumper settings. So I know the basics at least.
In the last two weeks, Games for windows live has been Disconnecting me
COMPELTELY randomly and random times. sometimes I can play for two hours straight,
sometimes it drops me twice every 15 minutes.
It has never done this before. I didn't change any of my internet settings. Ive been using the same highspeed internet box with its own built in router for two years.
Now, when I play online games, it will randomly boot me.
Nothings running in the background, no unnessisary programs.
No other problems with lag or virus or spyware in the least, that I've noticed.
no subtle oddities what so ever.
Except for this bull@#$ low quality product im forced to endure, just so I can PAY for games and play them online.
I do not want 10 layers of CRAP in between my purchased software, getting in the way when it fails. I realise that its not going anywhere.
But WTF is up with losing my connection?
I never go linkdead in any other online games what so ever, I never experiance any lag. Even when i get booted from GFWL.. no lag, no internet issues, no connection notifications in windows itself. online services like google still load and search instantly. no delay.
No only is microsoft getting in my way with excessive layers of application check points and log ins and maintenence AND performance bull @#$.
but now its ALSO effecting my ratings on competitive games when it drops @#$.
What do I need to check to sotp this bull @#$ Random GFWL Log out disconnects?
No one else is logging into my accounts, no oddities what so ever have ever been spotted in my Steam or other games and profiles.
I guess its something to do with a router? or a signal loss? thats triggering GFWL to cry like a baby and disconnect?
