I'm running a modded server with 42 mods from my Desktop which has 16GB RAM, a quad core 3.6GHz CPU and a wireless card.
I have a friend who I play with and when we are both on at the same time (I use my laptop which has a quad core CPU and 6GB of RAM) I alwaays geyt booted due to timing out, even if I'm moving, and the NPCs limp like they have broken legs.
It seems like the ping is extremely high but I don't know what I can do about it.
I've port forwarded properly and set a static IP address for the desktop, ad I installed Optifine on the server and disabled monster spawns.
I allocated 6GB of RAM to the server too, so it shouldn't be causing a crash.
My desktop is only connected wirelessly though. is that the problem?
Whenever he joins, it's always ME that gets booted even though I should have had everything set up properly.
I can play for as long as I want when nobody else is online.
My friend is in Michigan and I'm in Kentucky. so I'm on my LAN and he's on an external network.
