Can't get a solo session even with low MTU

Question

Lee1988

Hi, I'm trying to get a solo session to do CEO work and I'm fed up to the back teeth of other players destroying my cargo and joining my session. Thing is, I set the MTU to 700 and it STILL puts me in a lobby with 25 other players. What else do I need to FFS?! :angry:

Buy Cashcurds

 

Or try this:

Not sure if this still works,

Make sure you set in Energy Rest Mode settings:

  • Stay connected to the internet
  • Keep application suspended

1. Be in any Public lobby then put the Ps4 on Rest Mode.
2. Turn the Ps4 and wait for the internet to be full connected (check friends list)
3. Go back to GTA 5 application and it should said some alert that game was suspended.
4. Accept that alert and it should throw you into a solo public lobby most of the time

I'm not bending over to Rockstar buying shark cards. Rockstar make enough money they shouldn't be so greedy,

 

Thanks for the help but I'm on XBOX one, I know i Should have said that in the title.

I've been setting mine to 750 and consistently get empty lobbies as of yesterday. Maybe there's a sweet spot with the MTU setting? Just a thought.

Try blocking the Ports in your Router. You can find them easily via {putYourFavouriteSearchEngineHere}

No need to mess with MTU. If you really must escape to solo (and I only say this because I'm sick of a) people who cry when they get attacked and b) being voted to be kicked)

 

Start GTA Online,

Join a lobby,

Press the guide button,

Head over to settings, network

Test your NAT,

return to the game,

empty lobby

 

 

Or if you have your xbox hardwired in to a switch which is then hardwired in to the router

Unplug network cable between router and switch

Wait 10 seconds

Plug network cable back in

empty lobby

 

 

Or

Unplug network cable

Connect to WiFi

Start up game etc.

When in a lobby plug the network cable in

empty lobby

 

 

 

Or

Get better at the game and sell smart!

Works for me when I set it to 800. Sometimes I get some company, but it's usually not for long.

Try an MTU of 725. You'll rarely be in a populated session. But even if you are, they are probably grinding too. If that doesn't work, then you probably have too good of a wi-fi connection.

Yes because you are also both on PS4. OP is on Xbox.

Hey Lee (OP). After a request from another member here who wants to avoid this getting patched for as long as possible, I edited this post out and sent you a PM on how to do this easily on XBOX ONE where you don't have to mess with the MTU mumbo-jumbo.

I have no issues saving with 800mtu but I often have issues with friends joining me. I do all my sales solo. Friends will join but often lag out

Hit the Xbox button on your controller then go to settings then go to network setting then press ready nat type then as soon as you hit it quickly switch to gta again and you will have a solo lobby that you can earn money from by doing business battles
