When Xonotic is started, wi-fi goes down... Happens on OSX 10.5.6, 10.6.8 and 10.7.3... This same bug exists on the old Nexuiz as well...

Does someone know a solution for that? Today i've experienced it again and realized that the game messes with all the network, when on Wi-Fi... Making other computers offline too... (This time, under WINDOWS...)

Which version of Xonotic and what type of router / wireless device are you using?

#3 Updated by divVerent over 2 years ago

It sure is no bug in Xonotic, as no software, no matter how buggy, can crash a working router. Shutting down/rebooting/disconnecting a working router after all requires at the very least the password to its configuration system...

However, this doesn't mean it can't be possibly worked around. The general idea is to make Xonotic send packets less often. This will decrease gameplay experience, but may work around the router crashes.

Try: cl_netfps 30, and net_slist_queriespersecond 5.

But what I really recommend is upgrading the router firmware, and if that doesn't help, using your rights as a customer to get the router fixed or replaced by a working one.

I am keeping this ticket open for now, but will close it later, as it is clearly not a bug in Xonotic. Please respond whether any of these fixed your problem.

0.6 release, the router is a D-Link DIR-651...

It happens also in other routers, TP-Link's and NetGear...

SOLVED... (Less packets...)

So what was the solution then? Can this be closed or is something still required?

#7 Updated by bloodshinoda about 2 years ago

Less packets, reducing net speed and the "queries per second" solved that.... Thanks!
