Constant and frequent DC's (Not an internet problem)

#1HeadFullOfLeadPosted 4/20/2009 6:50:07 PM
I have a problem where I constantly disconnect. This happens so often and frequently that at times I DC 30 seconds after logging back in from a previous DC. These DC's are usually after slight lag, and are very frequent. My lag never seems to die down fully, however my internet outside of WoW is perfectly fine. I do not lose an internet connection outside of WoW, and when my game is lagging and I disconnect, I am able to browse the internet, my vent doesn't lag, and no one else on my router is having these problems. I tried to opened the ports on the WoW site, but I was unable to open 6112 due to my router sucking, and it hasn't helped at all.

If anyone has a similar problem, or might know a cause, I'd love to know. This problem also hasn't been just tonight, it's happened for a week or so. I have no firewall on, also.

Has it been happening since the latest patch?

Never argue with idiots. They'll drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

Yes, it has been happening since the latest patch, also prior to the patch, but not to the same extent. I've just recently had it so badly that right when the game loads I DC. I've tried disabling all my addons, no change.

See if any of that helps.

I've tried it all but deleting my temp files, nothing has worked.

I really don't think it's someone trying to log onto my account, I get lag as well, and nothing on my account changes.

I would strongly suggest deleting your addons folder and re-downloading all your addons (make sure they have been updated since 3.1)

If you are playing wireless try connecting using an ethernet cable.

How important is it to have port 6112 open? I've never really had a problem this severe prior to playing on Bonechewer (West coast server). I was thinking maybe since it's a west coast server, and I may not have an important port open, it's just now effecting me. Or maybe it was the patch that made it really bad?
