    I'm curious if some of the disconnect issues are not only attributable to the game, but also possibly to the type of connections guys are using. Wireless for gaming is dicey, because any hiccup in the signal can cause you to be dropped.

    I'm using wireless but right now I have no choice so I'm stuck with it.

    However it's been that way for like 3 months and I'm connecting to almost everyone and my connections have been generally strong. Both in NCAA and 2k.

    Well, guys on wireless are taking a risk of disconnects that is higher than if you are direct wired into your router. I was just curious.

    Quote from Ronnie 2k's Twitter, pretty sure hes talking about connection issues here.

    I have played 2K for a while and I have tried and heard many rumors around wireless being extra crappy for 2K gamers , I tend to think it is true, my very minimal knowledge about wireless not being as fast as hard wired drives me to always play hard wired.

    I treat it like the rumor that peeing after sex reduces chance of catching STD ...... Might be some bullshit but I practice it just to be on the safe side ;)
