I know it has been said over and over, discussed time and again, etc. etc. but here I go anyway. I just realized that my dc issues seem to come and go on what almost appears to be a 9 day schedule (probably a coincidense or my immagination.)
I restarted playing the game back on 10/18. Things look alot better than last year and run alot more smoothly. Quit playing last year after 2 weeks because of the condition of the game. Anyway, that is a seperate topic.
After a few days of playing on Sun. 10/23,(i remember cause i cooked brisket that day,) I suddenly started getting constant disconnects. I could play for anywhere from 5min to 2 hours and it would dc on me. Sometimes it wouldn't let me log back in because it thought I still was logged in(30002). Then it stopped after 2 or 3 days and all was well,NO issues at all,, for a bit. Started again on Thursday 11/1. I remember this day because it got really frustrating and i started researching it on forums. I tried everything I could find. Firewall, antivirus, port mapping, ports in router, running processes, ports in firewall, direct hook up to router with cable, and a couple more items that one SHOULD NOT HAVE TO DO to play a game. Plus trying all the combos and then reseting everything you change back is a pain in the $%&.
Anyway, I finally reinstalled the game the following day. Nope was dc'd within 30. So I went into my den and installed it on my HTCP. It worked fine. Was able to play for 5+ hours no problems. Went back to office desktop and it worked fine now too.
Until yesterday it started again. My point is that even though I tried to fix the issue, I didnt really do anything because everything I changed I also switched back. The problem Just kinda went away, or into hibernation, for a bit. I have also checked every other piece of WiFi in the house, and nothing gives me trouble. I am typing this on the same computer and it never gives me internet problems. Only XIV has an issue.
Thanks and sorry again for gelatinizing brain matter!
BTW, sorry i just realized i put this under wrong forum, can it be moved to feedback?
