getting disconnected randomly?
hi there. i've been having this problem from the get go and i'm trying to pinpoint what the problem could be. when i first get on...everything seems to be going smooth.

i can talk, listen, change channels. then, at seemingly random times i'll get disconnected, then it says (to the other people on) that i'm reconnecting, but when i get back on i can't hear anything or speak.

so i click on disconnect, then click connect, and i come back on and all of a sudden my handle is duplicated in the channel i was last on. frozen there. i go to that channel and i can see my name on there twice. i can hear and talk again...but then every 25 secs to 5 mins it happens again. does anyone know what could be causing this?

i run a power mac G5 (pre-intel) 2gig processor. i have a USB headset that is brand new. i forwarded the port on my firewall to clear that up....any ideas?

The only time I've seen this happen was due to extreme packet loss / corruption. In this case, it was a bad Ethernet card. However, if packet loss is occurring anywhere along the path, it could cause the same thing.

Got any neighbors or family that know a lot about networking that could check it out?

unfortunately i don't have anyone who can help to check it out. i don't know why the packet's would be getting dropped. is there anything that i can run that may be able to check my system to see if this is a hardware issue. i once just ran a standard hardware check on my system and encountered no errors...but i don't think it was looking for this issue specifically.

could this have to do with something that the person hosting the vent is doing? could it be something connected to the other persons on the server/channel? like if they have something configured specifically it would cause me to disconnect?
