Hi Guys,

While playing Diablo 3 on my pc the game will suddenly stop working as in my character can move around but none of the demons can move. they still perform there animations. if i attack with my character, all it does is the animation but i cannot see the fire skulls or poison darts. my ping is still 45ms talking to the servers in Aussie. i have to restart the game to get it to connect. 5 mins later same thing happens.
then i decided to run a wireshark packet capture and i noticed I am getting a lot of FCS errors when talking to Blizzard servers(FCS : bad, traffic type is bnet and shows up black in wireshark, also seeing a lot of retransmissions but i think they are normal for a game using UDP), as a result I am unable to play the game at all. i did a pathping to the server and it lost 1 packet only. I have taken my pc to another place which is a slingshot connection and the problem is not there and I can play absolutely fine. On an orcon genius connection

anyone else out there experience the same?

I have an open ticket with Orcon but they dont seem to be much help

Good troubleshooting approach.

Maybe Sounddude can help, try messaging him if he doesn't see this thread

What router are you using, Genius? Have you tried a different router on your connection?

Is this ADSL2+, VDSL2 or UFB?
