SL cuts my ADSL connection!
« on: May 05, 2009, 11:30:36 AM »

It started some days ago. When I enter a specific place of SL, my internet connection cuts out. After 30 sec or 2 min, but always. I go into this area since the day I joined SL and it never happened before. It's same for the three different characters I have in SL.

Oh BTW, this place is The Red Light District of Amsterdam. Please don't ask me what I was doing there, but I must say that all is ok in the other parts of Amsterdam. And elsewhere in SL. ::)

Avast! and Spybot S&D found nothing. I looked for weird .exe files in C:, Windows and System32. Emptied all the caches. Googled a lot but nothing about that very particuliar problem. Is it possible that SL uses a script cutting my ADSL connection when I am in that place?
 
Thank you. And don't tell me I have nothing to do there and must avoid this place (it's what I'm doing now). I really need a more scientific answer. ;D

Don't know if this has anything to do with your problem.
Computers in China are unable to receive a number of internet sites.
The China government banned the sites.
Here in U.S. our public librarys are unable to recive a number of sites.
I don't know if its the internet provider or city governments.

Yes Duskrider, like books banned by libraries, like Usenet Newsgroups chosen (or not) by every provider, like the Chinese Google "forgotting" all the sites where people of China have nothing to do. I'm glad to see I'm not considered as a dangerous activist, because my site is very well referenced by the Chinese Google. ;D

About SL, I think my title was not well chosen. It's not Linden Lab which cuts my connection. The Red Light District of Amsterdam is a harmless place in SL. Mature, sexually oriented, but no censorship needed. Sure that someone have put something like a virus or a malware there. And it's stupid!! >:(

Sounds like it's someone's scripting that is causing it.  Can you tell if other people are online there before you get cut off ?  If it persists I would imagine they would do something about it.  Peculiar.

Yes Freddy, there were other people there. Interesting to list them next time, and find who is always in the place when I arrive. And maybe sends a bad script.

Nothing personal because my three characters are totally independent. :D

Ok, the problem is now fixed. Just a little bit frustrating: I would have that script which cuts internet connections. ;D

I encountered another strange thing in this area. During a few minutes, I became invisible (only my hair and my shoes were showed). Now it's ok.

This place is haunted! :o
