  1. So far and I haver had it up and running during a 2.5 hour practice and race session in iRacing and the Gateway has worked great even the test I just did a minute or so ago on here is right in line with normal results so the lack of a properly operation fan causing the gateway to overheat is what was causing my upload issues as far as I can tell.
  2. Ha I went and listened to the gateway and no fan was running and it was really hot, replaced fan with one i had that amazingly fit and it seems ok now
  3. Thursday Afternoon all was Great I was on iRacing all my Latency and so on was Perfect at 100% and was even Live streaming a race and no issues. Then last night (Thursday) about 21:00 PDT While running a iRacing Practice and Live streaming I got a message that the YouTube stream was stopped But still in the Sim the Latency and quality numbers were fine at Approx. 22:30 I went to enter a Race (I mention what I am doing so everyone understand that this task requires a decent internet speed and low latency to function properly and has to have that in both directions up and down) My Latency had jumped from around 66 to fluctuating between 133-200 which 200 is in the Red and the Server connection was at 100% So their system and internet were good but the Server connection specifically for me was down to 80%. Now it is showing a 45% packet loss for my connection to them and my internet upload speed has dropped from 37 Mbps to between 60-90 kbps. I have reset the gateway 5X In hopes it would all of a sudden solve the issue and restarted my Gaming Desktop 2X This is first time I have had this issue that I can verify with the Speed tests since I started iRacing in 2019 and I remember years ago like maybe 5-10 I had a Modem back then (No Gateways at that time) that I had to replace and as soon as I did it solved the issue. Sad thing though I had to argue with the Comcast tech for quite awhile and finally demanded a New modem as I had done everything he was suggesting multiple times and was sure it was the upload section of the modem. I am pretty sure it is the same now but just wanted to see if anyone else thought the same?? All drivers on my Desktop Are up to date as I am on top of that due to my iRacing and streaming
  4. The golden Site Xfinity always tells you to use to test internet speed keeps saying Ooops something went wrong, More like oops our Lie we tried to feed you is so obvious we had to crash the test. They always show me as getting 950Mbps or above and I know that is Pure Pooo. I like to test here and then there just to document how much they try to BS people.
  5. I use TCP Optimizer and I use windows 10, Windows seems to like to also on random occasions/updates reset those values back to the non optimal ones. I have used TCP Optimier now for a few years probably 10 maybe now (Geez Time flies as I get Old) I have tested using the Windows default settings then run TCP using the optimal setting reboot and retest and it has always had a much better results on both Up and down after using it. I also recently well last 18 months been doing a ton of iRacing and at same time streaming my races while also using online Telemetry loggers, Discord and Teamspeak apps and have had great results with no Latency or issues of any kind where I hear people that have not tested using this site nor know much about optimizing their internet have lots of issues like High Pings causing cars to vanish or get completely booted by the service due to Latency issues.
  6. well if it has anything to do with the storms lately I know Monday we could not broadcast our iRacing League race as the Head Guy doing the 4K Live streaming lives in Texas and He was without Power Internet anything , I think his el even went off right after contacting us.
  7. Does anyone know if there is a way I can set something so that the xfinity gateway will only do a reset/reboot when I want it to? Way to many times now it will just turn itself off and reboot in the middle of one of my Iracing events which boots me out of server (no connection) and then I get to finish last multiple laps down depending on length of race left. I ask as it just did this to me where I was p14 on grid and was running p5 (p=Position) with a great chance to possible finish top 3 which would of gained me a great deal or IR and SR (ratings they use to put you in with drivers approx. same talent plus higher IR better chances of gaining more and possible gaining the WC/Pro license. I bet in last year I have lost 1000 or more IR just from this same issue Holy cow I just went and looked and I finished dead last 22 out of 22 had I finished 6th I would of gained 70 IR (compared to the driver who did finish 6th with similar IR I had instead I lost 86. but actually I lost 156 from what I would of gained added what they deducted from me Normally in a race you are doing good if you gain 30-50 IR It could possibly take me 5 races finishing great to recover what I just lost due to a Xfinity self initiated reboot. If I need to I can manually hard boot the dang thing every night when I am not on iracing or a few hours before I plan to race .
  8. Actually I use a Budget ( what most people call budget setup) as I do not have the $$ for a better one. I currently use the Logitech G29 Wheel, I had a G force 6+R Shifter but they designed it where the reverse switch was on the bottom (you had to push down and push Right and Back to get reverse) and it hit the bottom of the case and broke a connection pin. And for pedals A guy had a Set of Thrust master T3PA Pro's that had bad Potentiometers and he actually gave them to me all I had to do was buy the Potentiometers and replace them. From what I have heard from other people in my league etc. is that the Fanatec Pedals and Wheels are pretty good. Thrust master makes a good wheel and of course pedal set, matter of fact Thrust master has a new set of pedals I believe the T-LCM which has the Load Cell brake ( Supposed to be best braking style of pedal compared to potentiometers) and the hall effect Throttle (uses magnets so no moving parts to wear and supposed to be more accurate also.
  9. Sorry I am so late replying I somehow missed this, But if you have checked out some of the LSRTV stuff, look up iracing on you tube also they have the 24 hour races where they really run 24 hours have teams where different drivers do like 1-3 hour sessions and they switch throughout the event, Indy car stuff, IRX ( I believe is Ralley cross) World Of Outlaws Late Model and Dirt Sprint cars . Quite a broad range or racing types .
  10. I sure hope you all missed that race it was horrible, first after qualifying I loaded the wrong setup so I was about .5 to .75 slower then I should be, almost had that worked out but forgot to shut my door to my room all the way and my cat decided she wanted to climb in my lap to take a Nap (which she does on occasion), she got tied up in wheel and caused me to crash then when I yelled at her to get down she freaked out and decided to go under desk where my cables are and got tangled in HDMI and unplugged monitor LOL. Thank goodness we have drop races and a 36 race season so I can make up for a bad finish. But I did get some better Camry Cup car pictures
  11. Here is the you tube link to Tonight's (Thursday) broadcast and I am running the #333, This is open setup series so I hope I spent enough time massaging my setup to run up front. North West Truck Series race at Michigan Via iRacing and LSRTV Dang almost forgot Race grid is at 9:00 PM PDT The broadcast starts at around 8:45 PM PDT
  12. @nanobot You should look up the iRacing Youtube channel as well as LSRTV on Youtube as they have all sorts of races Broadcast from, Dirt Midgets, Winged Sprints, UMP as well as the Coca Cola iRacing Pro Series and misc Road course stuff too. I hear quite a few people talk about it like it is a arcade game or so on, But in reality they have done a great job with making the tracks look and feel exactly like the real world ones as well as working the telemetry and physics to be as close to real as possible ( Obviously there is not the G forces or the wind nor the possibility of injury if you wreck) but it still takes a lot of commitment to practicing etc. to even be close to competitive. Some of the races I have done I have ran 5-8 Times the laps of the race to fine tune my setups and get so I can hit my marks each lap etc. I have put in on occasion 4 to 5 hours practicing to run a 1 hour race.
  13. Here are 2 quick Pics I got of the Testmy.net Tundra I'll be running tonight at Michigan, I have a practice I am getting ready to do ( Just waiting for USPS they are supposed to Deliver a 15 " 1500 Watt 4 Ohm Sub and I cannot hear door if I have my headphones on I use for racing LOL) I will get a few more pics at better angles during practice to share to really show how the truck looks.
  14. Ya I seen the way did not do a very good job of showing my car or the Logos on it, Though I guess I can expect that as I have missed some of the cup races , the truck though I have not missed any. I'm sorry I thought I posted my car is the #333 I'm also the #333 in truck. It is kinda Ironic how I had to give up positions as to not wreck the #40 car 5-6 different times for his driving tactics then he ends up winning and I get 7th. Thing is that kind of stuff is what i'll remember next time and maybe won't be so giving, It just takes a Minor bump at Corner entrance to cause the car in front to push wide allowing to to easily pass underneath without wrecking them. Ill work on getting some better pics, Just realized I usually save the replays and upload to you tube but rarely get a 360° set of pictures of car or truck sitting still.
  15. HA found the link to Mondays Cup series event lol, took me forever LOL iRacing NW Cup Series Michigan :)
