If anyone can shed any light on these issues, I'd be very greatful.
I've been trying to download GTA5 via the Rockstar Social Club game client for nearly 2 weeks now and I've had my ISP (Aquiss) looking into this for the past week. The Social Club game client actually disconnects the PPP session I have with my ISP, my router stays in sync with the local exchange DSLAM but my Internet connection is completely disconnected for about 10 seconds. It then reconnects and continues downloading. After the Social Club game client causes a number of these session drops (it takes about 30 mins) the BRAS considers my Internet connection dead and disconnects my router totally until I call my Aquiss and they get BT to flex the line allowing me, once again, to connect to the internet.
I didn't have a problem downloading the first 40GB of game data, the final 20GB has been a nightmare due to the constant PPP disconnects and thinking there was something wrong with my router or local exchange hardware. Aquiss Broadband (great guys) have been troublehooting with me over the weekend and today, after a couplet of attempts at downloading GTA5 again, I realised there is something seriously wrong with the Social Club game client. I've been doing some testing and found that my connection remains stable if I encapsulate the game data connection within a VPN tunnel and let the remote side of the VPN deal with any problems. As soon as I disconnect the VPN and resume the download I observe a PPP session drop.
Does anyone have any info or knowledge about this? I was totally unaware that an application had the capability to disconnect a PPP session.
Thanks in advance.
