Does Gaming Mode do Everything the Same, Except No Notifications?

Recommended Posts

In trying to eliminate an annoying internet connection issue, I've isolated it down to one of 2 things, one of which is Immunet Gaming Mode, vs regular.

So as the title asks, is Immunet doing anything differently in Gaming Mode, other than simply not notifying you of anything?

When Gaming Mode is enabled that just disables any pop-up messages from Immunet but it does not affect the level of protection provided according to the user's settings. No personal settings or Immunet's internet behavior changes except for how notifications are handled.

Out of curiosity what was the problem you were having with that particular internet connection? Was it associated with a software package, your modem/router or possibly a VPN service?

Cheers, Ritchie...

Something else to take into consideration is that Gaming Mode is automatically disabled after every re-boot. This is a "built in security feature" of Immunet, just in case a user forgot that Gaming Mode was still enabled.

Thanks.

Yeah I noticed it turned off Gaming Mode on reboots as part of trying to sort out the connection issue. The debugging is still ongoing. No VPN in use currently. Unlikely to be software-related as several computers and users are affected. At this point I suspect the issue is simply the ISP's modem, or their cabling.

what issues are you experiencing? are you on wireless? hardwired? Proxy?
All games, or certain games?
Modems can react badly to electricity fluctuations as well causing lag etc. for example, I live in a super old house and I actually have to use a voltage regulator so my modem doesn't freak out, (without the regulator gaming is terrible).

Though, this might not be your issue- it could simply be ISP related, bad line, etc.
If you are dropping connection COMPLETELY could even be firmware (if it drops for 1-2 minutes and reconnects, if hardwired in).

I know how that goes! I was also having problems with my modem about 2 years ago. The internet connection would drop out for no apparent reason, especially during inclement weather,  and the the only way to restore it was to re-set the modem once again.

After "numerous" customer service calls and finally several technician visits it was eventually discovered that the utility pole junction box leading to the house had a intermittent short that was especially susceptible to a lot of moisture or actual precipitation in the air. Plus my ISP upgraded my modem/router to a newer, better model. Once that was done everything was and still is good to go!

I remember though how frustrating that could be if you were in the middle of doing something and suddenly you internet connection cuts out.
