ERROR MESSAGE: Internal exception: Java.net.SocketTimeoutException: Read timed out
SYMPTOMS: High Latency(lag), slow loading of levels. Creatures not moving on my screen, but they do see me and attack... I die later on :/ Then eventually I time out with the error above.
Happened since the update after the wolf update.
Tried deleting .mincraft to insure it was a corrupt file after the update... with no change.
Tried reinstalling java to insure it wasn't that..... again no change.
Tried messing with setting on my wireless card. Including power output, RTS threshold and fragment threshold.(though I will continue new threshold settings, I dont wish to go much lower on them since the rest of my internet seems fine.)
Now tried downdating my java client to u21 also failed, note u21 was the java I start playing minecraft on and it worked fine then. SO now that is also eliminated from the equation.
i just wish someone would actually recognize the issue and say their working on it, instead of everyone just assuming ""gee maybe one day they'll fix it" wheres the official announcement saying notch knows the issue even exist...?
i started getting this after the 1.5_01 update as well, only a couple times then today every server i try it happens. sometimes i get to log on, then get booted by this, sometimes not. so far changing any settings in game do nothing. now im at the pont of re installing java and mc, maybe that will do something? who knows...
I've been having this problem for a while now, but has gotten worse recently...
I've made a correlation between my custom skin and this error...
I'm in Australia and use my mobile phone as a modem.
I've found this error Occurs most frequently at between 5pm and 1am. After 1am and up until 5am, this problem doesn't happen and while this isn't happening (during the period it stays connected), my custom skin is not visible.
