BF2142 - request

Hi all,
Just wondering if anyone out there can do me a favour. We have reports of issues with this game being laggy on a particular server - 193.33.186.120:17567
Could someone who has this game please run a wireshark capture on this game whilst connected to that server and get it to me in some way please?
Many thanks,
Matt

I'm working on it, but the server is always full.  Will keep trying.

OK, I have the wireshark capture for this server (18.5Mb).  Where do you want it sent?

Awesome, thank you!
I'll PM you with email details, unless you can upload it somewhere and I can download it from there?
Thank you again,
Matt

Hi,
Apolgies for the delay, I've got the packet capture and passed it on to the products team - we'll have an update for you tomorrow when they're back in the office.

I hope this helps your BF2142 games.  Let me know your gamer tag and we'll meet up on BF2142 (once I get it back on my PC.  Had to format and reinstall!! Sad )

Re: BF2142 - request

Right, the pcap file is now with networks after having had Guru Dave take a look. Apparently its traffic on port 17567 that is being picked up as p2p traffic, which means that it's actually being classified incorrectly rather than there being no rule.
Unfortunately this makes the business a little more complicated, we may need to run a packet capture on our routers live in order for the networks team to identify the differences between these and the p2p packets that have already been identified. If anyone can help with this (basically be willing to play a bit of BF2142 between the hours of 9am and 6pm and let us know when this is) please let me know, thank you.

Hi,
How are you getting on with this ?
My call has been open a very long time now and has not been resolved. Can you not just buy a copy of the game and do the tests ?
Thanks.

Keep chasing if not fixed.  I offered to help but Networks team always busy or away to accept my help.

Re: BF2142 - request

Another example of how long it takes PN to update the Ellanoya and the reason I am still loathed to change to any BBYW account.
I hope the orginal customer who complained about this is on the PAYG profile until this is resolved, other BF2142 folks should request the same.
