My connectivity at home is not so great. 4Mbps down / 500kbps up.
Starting up Bisq is really really slow until everything is connected / synchronized. Sometimes it just never seems to connect. Really unstable / unusable.
Is it due to my limited bandwidth? Anything that can be tuned?
I am not sure, it could be. Tor can use up quite a bit of bandwidth.
Was Bisq always unstable for you on that Internet connection?
Hi @Darr ,
What kind of connection do you have ?
coming in and to the computer ?
With eg wifi-wifi, things can be slow.
Bisq is quite greedy at startup.
When I used Bisq a year+ ago over the same connection it seemed robust.
Also Dao synching seems to be a permanent activity.
I am using Wifi over ADSL. Tor browsing is slow but working.
Are the minimum BW requirements known?
Not really. I can’t imagine they are much, but it could depend on your luck I guess.
Maybe you can try disabling the DAO feature by running Bisq with
