Hi everybody.

Often when I try teleporting using Firestorm, the teleport starts and the progress bar gets maybe half-way with the "requesting teleport" status but then seems to hang, and there is no Cancel button, no menu, no way out of it, even Ctrl-Q doesn't work. I wait there, unable to tell my friends that yes I really am on my way, and eventually after a couple of minutes, the only thing I can do is the drastic step of killing the Firestorm process, launch it again and log in, and try the teleport again, which then usually works immediately.

The sims I am trying to get to are nothing special, usually fairly quiet.

I have read that a big load of attachments can slow teleports, but I never wear more than a mainstream mesh body and head, basic clothes/hair/jewellery, and no HUDs, with ARC of 50k or so.

Can anybody suggest what might be going wrong here? Thanks a lot.

I upgraded my connection (well the ISP foreced me to) and it got increasingly rare since then... just a suspicion, nothing I can confirm or test with a significance test...

Thanks Fiona. I have a good wired internet connection. The speed test at http://tucson.speedtest.net (the test recommended in the Firestorm support wiki) gives Ping time 146 ms, Download speed 23.29 Mbps, Upload speed 4.80 Mbps. My max bandwidth is set at 1500, as recommended.

That is the recommended 'max' but sometimes you'll get better results with it being a bit lower.  Try reducing it by a few hundred and see how that goes.  My ping times are roughly the same as yours, but I found that I actually get fewer SL issues with my bandwidth set to 1000.
