Linksys Router Holy Grail = GOODBYE PARSE ERRORS!!!
I've done it!
Months and months of frustration to no avail. I have cracked the code!
I own a Linksys 41 router.. and have been plauged with that "parse" error that randomly boots clients every 1 to 5 minutes.
No more.. WHOHOOO.. The only thing that I did was enable MTU under the advanced settings in the router.. and set it to the lowest possible setting. 57
Now I dont know how this will handle on a load. To be honest with you I only tested it with one player who had had that problem before. But we didn't drop once. We booted up Solider of Forturne 2 as well.. which was also having the same problem. GONE. Finally! Good riddance!
The only other (minor) change I did.. was enable auto-mtu updates in windows xp.. which I did with a program called Customizer XP. But I dont think this had anything to do with it.
The MTU option did not show up in my routers config until I updated to the latest firmware. If for some reason this fix turns up not being valid, I will repost.
Throwing up a dedicated server now as we speak. Finally a dedicated duel server to myself!
Thanks for all the attempts for help though guys.. glad its over.
