cant play gameFollow

I am sure that this problem has been brought up lots but I cant find it having happened since the patch.

When I try log into FFXIV I press start at the main menu then there is a delay of about 30 seconds before that text about playing too much pops up immediately followed by:

13001 The lobby server connection has encountered an error
Error code: 0
Status: 0
TIMEOUT

This has been happening to me ever since they patched the game. I've tried to log in every half hour since then and managed to get in once but it was right before I was needing a nap so I thought great ill be able to log onto FFXIV when I wake up but since then its been the same.

What is the deal with this? Is it something wrong on my end? the reason I know it not cos the server is down is that i managed that one time plus if the server had been down since the patch people would be posting left right and centre, the last post regarding this error a can find is the 5th of October.

Please help me out with this, Im trying to get into FFXIV and its quite difficult when stuff like this is happening.

Sounds like you have a bad connection, are you living in school dorms? Could be your firewall if nothing else. You on wireless?

I guess just give us a list of information about your internet connection.

Im not really an expert on internet connections but i reckon ours is pretty decent here, i live in a single house and we have up to 20 Mb BT broadband,i know its actually a lot less. I just checked the connection but i cant find the speed or anything, its alot slower during the weekend obviously but i was on fine last weekend. My brother is in the house playing another MMO and he says its fine, ive had difficulty getting on even when he is not playing.

So in a long winded sort of way id say our internet connection is at least average.

Don't need to bump, I see a notification when you reply to a thread that I have posted on. Your router could be blocking the port to your game and the port is open for your brother. Maybe your brother blocked the ports to your game so that his would not go slow. You might have to check your firewall settings on your local computer or maybe on the router.

probably has something to do with game version and boot version. I have 2010.10.08.0000 on both, anyone care to share?

He says he can update and has the newest version, of course if he was in Beta that could be ******** him up if he didn't uninstall that first.
