    Hey Nuss

    Do you and stakes play BF3 on the same internet connection without any issue? Another guy in my household just got it and only one can play at a time basically, the other just gets the orange disconnect symbol up the top right with a 800+ ping...

    These days yeah, but in early BF3 we had a different problem where the other would just get kicked.

    Can't actually remember what I did to fix it though lol.

    What's your router?

    I remember when I played at andys house a while ago we had the same issue. He did something where he ran the connections through a switch I think, which fixed it. Had something to do with both PC's trying to access the same ports I think

    Have a look at libever's third post there, haven't tried it myself but it sounds like a workaround for what Andy did.

    By third post do you mean turning off UPnP?

    Will try that, good thing my room mate doesn't really play it so its not really an issue.

    EDIT: Tried that and got the disconnect thing without the other computer even running so might put it back on and forget about it haha

    I found it was that the ISP supplied modem that was the cause.

    UPnP works by automatically opening the ports when a program requests it.

    So the bigpond modem couldn't handle two PC's requesting ports open for BF3. Therefore the first player disconnected when the second player joined.

    The quick fix for the bigpond modem/router was to disable UPnP on the modem. BF3 must be able to work without ports being forwarded.

    I tried a different router with UPnP enabled and both worked.
