rainbow 6 Seige

Recommended Posts

wanted to play Seige this morning, all I got was failed to connect server  with  error,  I checked my win10 firewall allows and seen it had 5 entrees  for the game.

I removed all Seige allows and  started game  an firewall poped up to allow game trough, worked and seems  other were messing up game connection.

Now I connect and Bam I'm in game,  before would have to wait along time the spinner to stop,  players would complain or kick me out

Why would you even run a Windows Firewall while playing games and been behind a router. Isn't your Router already stopping the BS out? If I want to use you a Firewall, know that I never use a Windows version. Plus, I use windows 7 and my HOSTS file is close to 1,5Mb. When windows 10(actually Windows 9,5) is needed, I just reboot and select by DUAL Boot what I want. Windows 10, prevent you to use and edit the HOSTS file as it uses other stuff to gain their control, ;)

That is why most of my edits comes from this: http://someonewhocares.org/hosts/

And VPN is nice to switch IP's very quick. 

Also check this out and not much needed to run this:: https://www.pfsense.org any 'gamer' should have one old PC laying around to use this;

If you are timing out or having random ping spikes then your dx files are screwed, reinstall them and it will go back to normal

Happened to me about 6 months ago I was trying everything from port forwarding and all 😂
