I have been getting this a lot lately, it tries to load AV but never can and I get booted back to where I qued saying:
"Transfer Aborted:instance not found" and then I get the deserter tag, has anyone else been getting this?
Do you use peerblock? Mine sometimes will boot me when tying to join bgs and I had forgotten to turn it off. It shows up as laverne CERFnet or something close to that as what is being blocked. Even if you keep permanently allowing it, there are so man bg severs that they will sometimes still be blocked by peerblocker.
Nothing has changed on my computer for over 6 months, I only use this computer for gaming, the other one for work and my laptop for browsing the internet. I haven't changed any settings or anything like that, its just sometimes happens. I don't understand the instance not found thing though when it tries the load the bg.
