I don't think it's the signal to the router as I always have upwards of 95 percent signal but I don't think my landlord would appreciate a massive long wire going all the way through the house. Also last Wednesday and this Wednesday are the only times its ever happened to me before. I race during the week with 6 or 7 friends on psn and never have a problem. It's bloody frustrating.
Suggest you get a hardline extender. I recently changed provider to Sky and their router is pants. I had to get a hardline extender as my router is in the front hall and my PS4 is in the attic. Using the hardline extender (not wifi extender) I'm getting 37Mb downloads at the console. I found that the wifi extender I was using was only delivering <1Mb at the console and I couldn't get online at all.

None of this network tomfoolery has made me a better driver, however, which was disappointing.

Having said that, the pcars-only issue is weird. I wonder if it's a timing thing. You might consider using the Wifi Analyzer app to see which are the most congested channels in your area and then configure your router to use a less congested one. Channel congestion & interference is quite often the cause for a wifi signal that varies in strength from one minute to the next.

Q:8. Did a PB, but was disappointed to be so far down. @David Harrop beat my time by 0.07.

R: 7. Made setup changes before the race and was a terrible decision. It made the rear end uncontrollable at all speeds. I did have some great difts, however they cost me a tone of time and ruined my tires.

Start was average and just tried to get into a rhythm but did not like the car or track so was finding hard to keep up with the faster guys and made a handful of mistakes. Lap 14 my tires were in worse condition than the tires I had at the end of the last race which did 30 laps.

After the pit stop I didn't have much action. @mpc-v1 had an incident which put me up a position but I had to blow it 2 laps before the end. I hope I can have a more exciting race at Brands Hatch

Congrats to @Hugh263 for another win
I think I only improved on my first quali lap by 1/10 as well. Ridiculously close.

Q. 3rd (wasnt my best lap but )

R. 2nd,

I had a bad start and after 1st corner was 8th. i had problem with my car voice. cant hear good when cars was near with me. anyway i managed to close the gup after colitions from guys in front of me and take 2nd place with @chris130256 just behind and pushed me ALL THE TIME !! great battle great fun but really exhausting..!I had forgotten the first place when realized that @Hugh263 didnt pit in . closed the gup but not enough laps . 5 or six laps before the end my tyres gone off and lose time. i was lucky as @chris130256 had penalty and stay 2nd.

really enjoyed this race and i had a pontium for my first official race in 2016!!!
race start 22.40
HAPPY NEA YEAR TO ALL AND GOOD RACES!! THANKS AOR !!

So errr, note to self: Don't try and race after spending nigh on 30 hours awake... Doesn't end well lol

Q: Yeah uh.... I'ma just going to go ahead and forget that lol

R: Boring... Spent a couple of laps all over the back of Milligan, but span coming out of the 2nd to last corner and that put paid to that battle. Had pace enough for 8th and that was it.... Oh well

Apologies to @ANTONIOS1978 if I held you up. Couldn't tell if you were a car lapping me or if you were a faster lapped car lol

Hopefully my car will be better at Brands... He says, wishing it so lol

P.S. Results have been updated. @Hugh263 is looking solid for the championship by Hockenhiem or Snetterton if he keeps up his Hamilton like series of wins lol

I don't know much about the wheel setup, literally the only thing I've done is lower the master scale because my wheel tends to overheat and loose power/FFB.

Ps how come I qualified 6th n wasn't shown on table before race ?
Really sorry mate, I've gotten you and Jordan Wilson mixed up...Too many usernames to remember :sorry:

Yeah, but reduced Force Feedback as it was too strong for my taste. Felt like I was wrestling an alligator round the track.

Jesus, no!

Dammit Jim. I'm a gamer, not a rocket scientist. Best advice I can give you is not to trust anyone who DOES know what it all means. They're probably a wizard or evil genius of some sort.
