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.
