Mad lag and connection issues

Issue Description:
Done the prologue, now loading into the Mourningstar and nothing but Lag and connection issues…

yesterday under 1.0.6 - lag and then anything from connection_lost, backend error, failed_handshake or a hot_tub_party_fail

today under 1.0.7 - lag, only 1 connection_lost so far, but still lots of lag, so quit dejected before the inevitable kick.

sorry it’s from a phone, but here’s some videos showing the situation:

ISP is Virgin Media in UK
125Mbps down, 20Mbps up (tested, with 17ms ping, 9ms jitter and 0% packet loss) - so should be good. Tried 2 other packet loss tools and both of them had zero loss.

updating drivers to latest inc windows
resetting modem, router and pc
uninstalled Avast
DMZ on router, disabled Defender
disabled Nvidia overlay and streaming
tried VPN with multiple locations
stopped the afterburner GPU overclock
killed/exited all running apps
lowered game worker threads to 15, then 12, then 8 then 4
disabled DLSS and graphics down to lowest
and always have this lag and connection fails…

Can’t walk around the hub so I’m not going to try/enjoy any combat… (no problem with any other game I’ve tried)

This is on our radar. Thank you!

Thanks for acknowledging this issue. Is there anything I can do to improve my situation? Will a re-install of windows help, or is it your side?

Thanks for any info - I’m sure you can imagine I’m feeling annoyed paying for this, having mates play together and I’m left refreshing here.
