Information regarding connection drop-outs to poker clients  0   
I posted this in another thread, but for those that miss it, i'll re-post below.

Basically - this information is for anyone who suffers from connection issues (drop-outs, lag, etc) that relate specifically to poker clients (ie; your internet is working fine, only the connection to the poker site is playing up).

Below is NOT a guide on how to fix to issue, I am simply highlighting the general cause(s) of a lot of these problems. For more specifics I suggest reading up on port-forwarding, setting traffic priority in router, checking your ISPs policy regarding these things (if they publicize it).

Also - a lot of poker clients somewhere on their website (possibly in FAQs) will list the ports they use.. This is of great use as it allows you to set specific port forwards up in your LAN/Firewall and ensure maximum performance over the (poker) client over your home network.

***

the reason poker sites and sometimes specific poker sites often suffer drop-outs even though your internet is still working fine generally comes down to your LAN (local area network; router etc) or your ISP (Internet Service Provider).

Basically - different applications and types of internet traffic use various protocols (for example web browsing uses HTTP and HTTPs among others). They also use various ports (once again HTTP for example uses :80, default email ports are 25 and 110).

Now the problem occurs because either your LAN or your ISP prioritises certain ports, fails to forward certain ports, prioritises certain traffic/protocols etc

This results and dropped packets (bits of data being sent), dropped connections, timeouts, data-parity checks failing, etc.

The solution is to

A) Ensure your LAN (specifically router and firewall) are configured optimally for your poker software (check which ports it uses, set port forwarding and ensure traffic priority for the protocols used by the poker client).

B) Find an ISP that also matches these requirements; some are much better than others.
