Troubles with Geonet ? Try this solution

As everyone playing WKC knows, Geonet is a whimsical network, some people have issues with this specific game while other online games work perfectly fine.

Among the common issues we have :
- Repetitive disconnections.
- Inability to see other mics (and thus hear them).
- Excessive lag for other players when you host a quest.

If you're in the case I mentioned, here's a solution : open the ports used by the network manually, Geonet seems to have trouble to do it automatically, causing your problems.

Of course, you need the list of ports to open, here it is (source) :
TCP Ports: 80, 443, 465, 983, 5223, and 10070 - 10080
UDP Ports: 3478, 3479, 3658, 10070, 50000 and 6000-7000

If you don't know how to open the ports, I can't help you since every ISP has his own menus, but searching for Open Port with your ISP name should give you the answer easily.

Of course, it's perfectly safe to do that even if Geonet is working perfectly fine, you might even notice less lag while playing after doing it :dance:.

awesome info! I'm going to relay this to a couple buddies. One has severe lag issues and the other has certain days where he can't stay connected. Thanks for sharing!

yeah, I have to make sure that my router is properly configured as well, it works well by default, and I get NAT type 2, but anything that can help minimize lag is a good thing.
