I still haven't really played an online game without having the disconnection problem and still Rockstar or Sony haven't fixed it. It is so dissapointing :smileysad:

Do you use a BT Homehub by any chance?

Well we did think it was to do with the BT Homehub, but now a few people are having the same problems on other routers. Im just going to try disabling my firewall and see if that works. Other than that though I dont know what to suggest, know one really knows whats happening with it all.

I'm with o2 also and get the same problem. Do you know which router you have? Seems like the only way to have it working perfectly is to use a different one. Although it does work for me when I make a custom game and set the slots to around 4-5 so that I'm hosting. Not many people join the games though and most people I invite cant join/get disconnected after a few seconds. Would be nice to hear something from Rockstar :smileyindifferent:

Re: GTA still not working online

There seems to be an issue with the routers that your ISP gives you. eg BT - homehub and whatever the 02 one is. Try another decent router and it should work

For once the orange livebox triumphs with connecting the ps3

 

BT and 02 are the same company and both use bt phone lines so not really suprising these are the two most people have problems with

Oh yeah, it didn't even occur to me that BT and O2 are the same company lol. The problem does seem to be related to them though. Not sure what it is, but its something to do with their connection or their equipment. I'm sure.

Mmm I haven't really played online yet, going to try this weekend, but I did manage to connect to test it with my Netgear Wireless WPN824v2 router and Virgin media broadband.....

Re: GTA still not working online

Yeah I do think the main problem is due to the fact the Rockstar server can't handle GTA IV online. Luckily for those 360 owners the game is hosted on the miscrosoft live server and not by the Rockstar server. I don't think BT and o2 are the same company, or are they? I have a black box o2 router. I think there are only 2 types one is black and white I was told. Maybe they are working on a patch to fix it or maybe not, who knows....
