If you get disconnected from the lobby every minute or Xplorers won't load maps and shows "Loading Maps..." you probably have a problem with the Offload Checksum. This happens on several Gigabit and some FastEthernet network adapters. Solution is to disable the checksum in the network adapter properties: Disable Offload Checksum.

In short (advanced windows users):

  • Disable the 'offload checksum' of your network adapter.

Step by step (for everyone):

1. Go to the 'System properties'

2. Go to the 'Device Manager' (tab 'Hardware')

3. Find your network adapter

4. Disable 'Offload Checksum' (tab 'Advanced')
