Firestorm crashing upon ''loading world'' - I assume the rollout has begun.

Question

You should be able to run SL on a DSL connection just fine... it could very well be your modem or router.

There are no files from your computer that you need to run SL on another computer... just download the viewer and sign yourself on.

If it is a 'cabled' DSL (meaning not Wifi - Wifi is a total nono for SL) everything should be fine.

As seen from your linked other thread, pretty much everything had been perfectly covered already by Rolig and the others.

The Modem / Router is still also my biggest guess.

Alongside to possible throttles in the services of your ISP.
Some ISP (Internet Service Providers) have very hidden lil traps in their contracts and services. Some throttle down the upload or download speed when a certain amount of data-per second is reached, others do it when a certain amount of transfered data per month is reached and all of a sudden throttle you down to just the half speed. Even if they call it DSL *insert number here* they might make you fall beneath that number. To find out if there are any of such speed-traps in the DSL package you have, you need to talk to your ISP. but be aware - you need a 'competent' person to talk to. The usual Support-Employee will just answer: we are awesome, the product you booked is awesome, and there are no such throttles ; )
Once you have a good advisor on the phone, i'd suggest maybe looking what package options or other options they offer to enhance your experience. (be carefull they do not try to sell you the 'company-mega-pack-direct-line"-offer..well you know what i mean lol )

Another good thing would also be to get them to send a new router/modem, or run a test on yours (yes they can do that from afar - the result isn't always 100 % reliabale, but might be a hint, or at least make them send you a replacement)


Then the only other thing noone mentioned so far (as long as i did not oversee it - i read the whole other thread, but who knows : )) is the bandwith settings in the viewer. Tweaking those can help you improve a lot as well. Torley had dropped a good Tutorial on that here : http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Tips-and-Tricks/QUICKTIP-Get-less-lag-in-seconds-by-increasing-your-Maximum/ba-p/670217

PS: it might not always be the right choice to 'up' the settings, if that is giving you more trouble you can also try to check for the generally best balance which is the half of your DSL's  'download' speed.

Needless to say that secondlife isn't like browsing the web, or watching youtube videos. (which seem to be working fine for you). It has to transfer and download a 'lot' of data, and thus is quite demanding. But to be fair.. every other gaming / platform of a similar complexity, does so too, and are similar demanding and can cause problems : )

PS: possibly also make a harddisk check. If the write/read speed isn't optimal, or maybe even has I/O errors that could possibly also lead to having the client give up when 'loading world' due to the massive amount of data it has to write. Just a guess. 
- to run a checkdisk (check your filesystem for errors) 


- to find out if the harddrive itself is okay, figure what manifacturer it has and download a testtool from their website.

Since everything else already has been said, and i added my 2 cents as well. I really hope you can get your issues fixed!

Cheers, Code.

The SSB changes have only been rolled out to about 144 regions (those running on the Le Tigre server channel).  So unless you are trying to log on in one of those regions, SSB/A is not the problem.

Try logging in to a different region.  Try turning off and rebooting your DSL modem and your router, if you have one.  Try a clean install of Firestorm.
