Avatar goes running when left alone

Question

I assume I messed with a preference I shouldn't have, and I keep searching MOVEMENT but can't that seems like it would make me run in place like I am doing. I tried to ignore it but it is really getting on my nerves now to be standing still one moment then suddenly running in place, then still once more.

 

Any help?

Yup.  You have a wonky Internet connection, so the servers and your viewer are a little out of sync. Think of it like having a disagreement about where they each think your avatar is.  If you have been using a wireless connection, try a direct cable or DSL connection instead.  LL neither supports nor recommends wifi, although many people seem to have no trouble with it at all.   Also, try rebooting your router and your modem.  That can help with all sorts of connection issues.

Makes complete sense, actually. I've recently been running on a wireless connection so that seems to be the issue. My mind didn't wander to that as a possible problem because in all other ways SL plays as it always does. 

Thanks for solving the mystery for me. Unfortunately, it cannot be helped, but at least now I know what's up.

SL doesn't seem to fully recover from some kinds of packet loss. Check those colored bars at the top right of the viewer window. One of them is the packet loss rate. If it goes red, things may start to go wrong.

The viewer has a tool that will help you decide if it is your connection or something else. You problem is often a connection issue... usually...

Press Ctrl-Shift-1 to open the Viewer Statistics Panel. Look for Ping and Packet Loss. Idealing PING is <250ms. Over that and you start to fell the keys and mouse are mushy. Over 500 and you'll see stuff like you are experiencing. Packet Loss should be 0% but <=1% is livable. How much more the viewer/servers will tolerate depends on what is getting lost.

If going to a cable and restarting stuff doesn't fit it, troubleshoot the connection to the SL servers. Then complain to your ISP. http://blog.nalates.net/2011/10/26/troubleshoot-your-sl-connection/
