Post subject:  server browser issues

If anyone has had problems with the server browser not showing a lot of players and servers, then it probably has something to do with your router. I hadnt noticed this issue as I was using the server monitor onthe main page and an external browser to join servers, however I tried the in game browser today and it only showed 850 servers with a meager 128 players.

Appearantly the browser gets quicker responses from empty servers, so they show up first, however by the time you get to some servers with players in it, your router can time out on the queries...or something to that effect. This seems to happen most with netgear and dlink routers, but also some linsys are affected. There are two threads currently running in the Official Community Forums which cover this topic, which basically boils it down to two options....Upgrade your routers firmware and hope it fixes the problem, or get a better router...whatever that may be.

Check these two threads for more information:

Hope that helps.

This is very interesting.

I have been wondering why I only see about 850 servers running, with not very many people playing.

This answers the question.

I wonder if setting the filters in the browser to not show servers that are full or empty, and restricting the ping levels shown to 80 or less would help.

One other thing I noticed, is that when I set up the burial-grounds ETQW servers as favorites in x-fire, they show up as Canadian servers. (????)
