I like to tether my pc to my phone. At 4g speeds things work fine. When I get throttled to 2g speed, approximately 56kbps, electrum will never finish synchronizing.  I thought my wallet was corrupt so I deleted the folder from AppData and reconstructed from seed phrase. All my transactions were downloaded, but remained unconfirmed until I was on a faster connection. In the console window I see that the client is connecting to a new server every minute or so.

Is there a timeout on this process that is causing my client to abend the sync and start it again with a different server?

I am using 2.4.5 on 8.1.

Have you tried noting the server that you were connected to when it was working fine. (In console it might tell you / if you got to network settings)

When connecting with the phone untick the auto connect in networks and manually select the same server. This could rule out getting a different server thats slower.

It's not that. I left it on all night and it rotated through at least 30 different severs. As soon as my data plan reset it started working again.

Is there anyone else that is cheap like me and tethers their pc to a connection that is only 2g? I know it sounds crazy slow, but this way I get unlimited phone, text, data, and internet for $19.99 month.

I just gave it a try for the sake of testing and cant confirm. Its pretty slow, yes.

E.g. ping to googles DNS:

Code:
$ ping 8.8.8.8
PING 8.8.8.8 (8.8.8.8) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 8.8.8.8: icmp_seq=1 ttl=54 time=2377 ms
64 bytes from 8.8.8.8: icmp_seq=2 ttl=54 time=3012 ms
64 bytes from 8.8.8.8: icmp_seq=3 ttl=54 time=3214 ms
64 bytes from 8.8.8.8: icmp_seq=4 ttl=54 time=4211 ms
64 bytes from 8.8.8.8: icmp_seq=10 ttl=54 time=748 ms
64 bytes from 8.8.8.8: icmp_seq=11 ttl=54 time=426 ms
64 bytes from 8.8.8.8: icmp_seq=12 ttl=54 time=222 ms
64 bytes from 8.8.8.8: icmp_seq=13 ttl=54 time=304 ms
64 bytes from 8.8.8.8: icmp_seq=14 ttl=54 time=380 ms
64 bytes from 8.8.8.8: icmp_seq=15 ttl=54 time=451 ms
64 bytes from 8.8.8.8: icmp_seq=16 ttl=54 time=431 ms
^C

syncing an electrum wallet takes only ~1 minute though.

Edit: this post took ~20 seconds.
