Hi all,

 

We have been seeing an increase in users who are using comcast ISP and having problems downloading DCSWorld, modules or terrains.

 

If you are having issues downloading please let us know what ISP you are using,

 

and if you have dcs already attach your auto_update.log which can be found in your dcs root folder

 

Thanks

Comcast ISP, Had to use VPN

 

I was getting the updater timeout error. I have Comcast and saw your post. So I connected through a VPN and it's downloading now. Is Comcast interfering with your Torrent client in some way? Thanks for the heads up btw, I was starting to get frustrated. I've never had this persistent error before.

Something strange seems to be going on with Comcast and DCS_updater.exe

 

The team are making some adjustments internally.

 

If you have your auto_updatelog.txt from your root folder we would like to see it.

 

Thanks

I got it unpacked and up and running. If I try to run a repair, run the updater, download a module, and the daily update check when I run DCS all cause the timeout error without my VPN connected. Hope this helps

Having the same stalled download using Updater. Our ISP is Spectrum here in central Florida, not sure if it's related but having the same issues as mentioned here. Multiple try's downloading update from 2.5.6.49798 OB to 2.5.6.50321. It would go a bit further then stop... Was working all fine before.

Last couple of updates gave me a problem regarding downloading speeds. It is capped at 1.2 mb/s. I run the the server on other computer connected to the same modem. Both with a cable. That one's downloading speed is up to 7 mb/s. 

1. Anyone else had the same problem and how did you fix it?

2. Does that mean that DCS also is using the same speed while I'm flying it and therefore causing lags?

I have Comcast ISP and Comcast filters/monitors download traffic.  For instance, If you download a copyrighted movie, they sometimes email you a warning you that you downloaded copyrighted material.

Hmmm, OK but what does it have to do with DCS?

A track or it didn't happen.

@Flappie I'm just pointing out that Comcast does filter/monitor downloads.  I'm no IT guy, but maybe this effects download speeds???  Are big DCS files filtered like big movie files - I don't know..  Sorry if this adds any confusion.
When using my Comcast ISP, I get about 8mbs avg download speed from DCS.
If I check on Fast.com I have a possible 56mbs download speed.
