Congestion Collapse?

Hi, I am testing out tardigrade, trying to upload a 3GB zip file. However, it keeps going through waves of knocking out my wifi, and then continuing to upload, but this is very slow so I have cancelled it. Is there a bug, or some configuation issue on my end?

And as a side question… How can I delete a credit card?

Regarding the credit card issue, you cannot delete it unless you add another one first. You cannot have an open account without a default payment method. If you were planning to switch to STORJ token instead, please first deposit $50 worth of STORJ and then make a support request at to request your credit card to be removed.

The uplink creates a lot of connections to the nodes across the globe. Seems your router is unable to handle that via WiFi. Please, try to use a wired connection.

I can guess but do you use the Apple router?

No, this was using a TP-Link Archer A9. I’ll try a wired connection and different router when I get a chance, thanks!

There should be a way to reduce the number of connection etc, since some people have bad routers, As it is right now they are unable to use Storj (but most likely would be able to use S3 and similar).

However, reducing number of connections will reduce the speed. This is trade off for the decentralized cloud

There should be a setting for it somewhere. Crashing a cheap router means the user is unable to use the service, which means that if I am using Storj in a way that results in regular users accessing it, some of my users would be unable to access the files, which would make using Storj for storage/cdn a bit pointless.
After all, Amazon most likely works with the same router.

I think I ran into a similar problem before and had to use other methods to transfer the file, because Storj was very fast, but also didn’t work because the network card on a router crashed.
