Insufficient Bandwidth/Switched to Offline Mode

Recommended Posts

Out of the blue, I have been getting the subject message at the start of 3 flights this morning.

Anyone else experiencing the same?

It's been happening a lot. Server-side issues, I presume.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong. But my understanding is that selecting a different server only affects multiplayer interaction. Can changing servers also affect the quality of photogrammetry? I too have received a lot of bandwidth messages lately.

We are still seeing that obtrusive window popping up when being switched to offline too! I really wish they'd redesign it.

Yes, I’ve been getting the issue a lot since around the time of the recent sim update. Wasn’t an issue for me before that, now it’s pretty constant.

There is a troubleshooting article on the MSFS forum that includes checking and changing your server (if necessary) as an important step. 

I’m not sure why, but the East US server had a reported ping of 2147483647ms last night. Seems kinda slow. 😉

If you have this issue, the article recommends that you check your server and use a wired Ethernet connection.

Which is unlikely to help you..

Switching server did not help me. What helped me af first is to use a VPN.

But the last few days the issue progressed and the sim would get stuck in the checking for updates screen, with or without VPN. It is clearly a server issue since disconnecting the network lets the sim continue as normal. Same thing with ending a flight: sim won't go to the main menu unless I disconnect the network, then immediately the main menu appears.

There is a setting in the sim to limit bandwith to 40Mb which I am using now. It seems to help.

Maybe, maybe not.

It’s possible that MSFS is oversensitive to very minor disruptions in scenery streaming. 

The issue is annoying enough that I spent an hour or so reading up on how to install Ethernet cabling in a house after my sim session yesterday!

But I’m just going on what I read on the MSFS forum’s troubleshooting guide. No other program I own drops out in the same way that MSFS does.

Hopefully MS sorts it out from their end sometime soon. Offline MSFS looks pretty dismal.

I am sure ethernet cabling will work better than WiFi but don't expect this to end your connection problems. I am (and always have been) using wired internet and my speed is always above 900 Mbps (both download and upload) and still I get those bandwidth and disconnect messages a few times a week... It's the MS servers. Nothing you can do about it.

Same for me.

If this is an Asobo Server thing, hope they find a fix soon as it is --- me off.

Attached to West Europe server this morning & 30 minutes into a flight got the bandwidth message.

Again!

Not even sure that is a thing... I was ethernet connected for years and then had to switch to WiFi with a different Internet Provider.  First, I tried a USB WiFi stick and got pauses, but after switching to an internal Intel WiFi card, I have not noticed any problems at all..
