Does Yahoo Messenger just suck?

3 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Is it just me and my local area, or does Yahoo Messenger just LOVE to disconnect for no good reason? On both my work ISP (Global Crossing) and at home (RoadRunner), I get dropped as many as 20 times a day!

I've run constant pings to their servers - no latency problems.

I've run constant pathpings and trace routes - no packet loss issues.

Are their servers just not beefy enough to handle the traffic?

By the way, this also happens on Trillian - not just the Yahoo branded client!

Seems to be the crappy netcode on their clients. I encountered the problem that my complete trillian was disc. because of Yahoo.

Since I only use MSN again... I am happy as before!
