Whenever I host a Minecraft Survival multiplayer server, my internet shuts down. The only way to get my internet to work again is to restart my computer. I have the port properly forwarded, and I even receive notifications of users connecting before it shuts down. I've had this problem ever since the first release of the survival multiplayer server... What am I doing wrong/what can I do to fix this problem?
issue is most likely in your network somewhere. either your network card or router is dropping the connection. at most you can try to update your network drivers and/or update the firmware on your router to see if that helps any. some say there are issues with realtek chipsets but im still not so sure about that.
may or may not be a firewall issue. are you using a security suite?
I actually fixed my problem within about 10 minutes of making that post. I changed the receive buffer size on my network card to 256 and set the transmit buffer size to 512. Works perfectly now. :biggrin.gif:
I had been running it as an administrator in xp compatibility mode (I'm on Vista) before, but after I made that change it worked fine. I think Notch needs to set some sort of limitation in the networking part of the engine so that it doesn't just spam more packets than it can handle.
