    Lightbulb If you are having issues joining/disconnecting from game...

    The reason that this is happening is most likley due to your router. Different routers have difficulty communicating with each other in online play. The best alternative would be to connect your console directly to your land line.

    I played at work yesterday, on our corporate network, and experienced many of the issues that are being reported here. When I went home, I connected my console directly to my land line, and I played for 2 hours without any error messages, or being disconnected from a game.

    There is also an approved router list, so a secondary alternative to connecting directly to your land line is to use one of the routers on the list.

    The following is a list of approved and unapproved routers for 25 to Life.

    Approved Routers:

    * Linksys WRT54g: FW 4.20.7
    * Netgear RP614v2: FW 5.20
    * DLink DI-604: FW 3.51
    * Netgear WGR614v4 FW5.0_07
    * Linksys BEFSRv3:
    * Linksys BEFSRv1:
    * Airlink +AR315W:

    Unapproved Routers:

    * Belkin F5D6231-4:
    * Linksys WCG200: FW Standard

    How does this work through xbox live? If a router is okayed by microsoft should it be okay through your servers? or something like that? I have the dlink di 624 only had a few problems last night...

    well actually im getting disconnecting like every hour or half an hour,and the reasons 25 to life show are rediculous,what the hell is failed to report statistics so you'll be disconnected,i didnt know there was a way to report your own stats,and then failed to request a session what the hell is that....i try to follow my clan into a room so it says joining please wait than a black screen pops up and then it says failed to request session than it restartsmthis is kind of retarded,i didnt know you can make reservations in room like i have to request a spot in the room to play a game.

    PS and i have my modem plugged directly to my ps2.

    i've never had a problem because of my router while playing any other online games, why should this be the case now?

    also would this be the reasoning for me not being able to join games? i spent about a half hour trying to join ANY game today before i gave up

    P.S. i switched to socom3 after giving up on 25 to life today and had no problems with being disconnected at all

    My router is in the approved list but it still takes an hour just to get into a game I get errors such as Request failed to join and get booted alot, I can play Socom 2 and alot of other games online just fine. Theres plenty of people with this problem and since my router is in the approved list I should'nt be having this issue so the problems not on my end but the server more likely.

    So thats it? your not going to fix the servers but instead just tell us to direct connect. That invovles me buying a 100ft ehternet cord and tunneling it through my ventilation systems. Ill pass and return the game. Thanks for the efffort though........

    exactly. the servers are pieces of . I understand that when a new game is released the servers are a little bad but this is out of hand. they are garbage.

    I have the same problems. Router is on the approved list and I tried the direct connection. I've been online for probably 10 hours out of the past two days and I've only played 30 minutes, the other 9 hr 30 mins were spent trying to join rooms and logging on after better booted to the main menu.

    I play socom 3, battlefield2,nfl2k5,mlb2k5,thirteen ,ect. All the time
    and never have any trouble. My ''aproved'' router doesn't have nothing to do with the problem .It's simply the servers! Come on EIDOS, this is very disrespectfull for the whole online gaming community. A whole year of anticipation...hmmm... Ok, when you get to enter a session and play, the game itself is absolutely great. but the server is totally a disaster... If you guys patch it up soon and show that you care about the quality of your product, you will regain interest and RESPECT for future games created by your company.

    THANK YOU..

    exactly but they dont care,they got all your money.........theres been times that the game acts up so much that i get so angry,enough that i'd beat the creator of this game so bad that i'd get "25 to life".but then i shut off my system and calm down.so seriously i know you guys don't give a damn about us online players but please do something about these damn problems.and not thinking of excuses that try to draw us away from the truth.

    My router is approved and I get booted very often. Its not us its the servers. So please fix them.

    Like i've said in other forums, the online gameplay is so fun, I would hate to see people stop playing just because of disconnects.

    What about the message of the day thats been there since the second day of release? were' investigating' the problems, you should still have found it by now.... and began 'fixing' these issues. and what happend to the other half of the game? i still feel like its missing, there are 11 characters on the edios info page, and what 5 in game? hmm lets see, resolve all the issues and finish the game, at the expense of time and money.... or ship it tomarrow with all its flaws, and half the game there, to get a good fetch off the market due to all the hyped reviews? hmmm
