    Hi all, sadly i dont think i,ll be on for much longer(gutted).After one of my previuos posts involving network issues well the problem just wont go away, i have been intouch with pokerstars support they told me it was my router which is built into my modem its called a superhub by virgin media, so i rang my isp up told them Oi i have 100mb broadband and cant even play poker, so i talked them into sending me a new superhub, i also had my line checked 3 times now and no one can find any issues with it, ive reinstalled me computers operating system, tried 2 diff network cards, also ran every test known to man on my network its all comes up ok running fine i play computer games online,host games online where i am the server and all runs really really well, my computers not a toy its the real deal, but the second i start playing on poker stars well not as soon as i open my client but within 10 mins bang all the games start, lost connection, lost connection keep coming back to tables sitting out, the second i get a stack of chips behind me and im in 1st place bang connection goes and then i cant even log into pokerstars for about 20 mins its unreal, yet my internets still there at a click of a button and so is every other net based program.Last time this happened yesterday i was ready throw in the towel i opened my firewall logs up and tracked the traffic through poker stars and i dont know if this is normal or not but 36% of my pokerstars traffic goes to russia 33% to the rest of the world and the rest is made up local England and eu, heres my question why the hell is 36% going to russia that cant be right i play against russians but not 36% of all the players i play against.Does pokerstars have a main server in the russian federation? otherwise why is my network spending so much time in russia?Perhaps i am just been paranoid or perhaps i,m not! if i had some form of video recording software in i would utube it so u could see it for your own eyes it really is strange,perhaps this is the next option for me so u all dont think ive gone mad lol.

    Since you've been in contact with support I trust that you have kept them updated on your lack of progress. Maybe there is a poker playing network engineer on this forum.

    Best of luck.

          Just because you're paranoid, it doesn't mean they're not after you. Nostrovia
