This isn't strictly WoW related but as it bothers me the most with WoW I thought I would ask for help here.
Hopefully an extremely network savvy person will have a clue what is going on.
As of 3 days ago any online game that I attempt to play suffers random disconnections. I will log in to the character selection screen (all fine) and then choose a character.
This is the point where it goes wrong, sometimes the log in will be successful and then I will get booted after 5 minutes, other times it will take 5+ attempts to log in and then I will get booted within 10 seconds.
As it has only started to occur in the last 3 days I naturally assumed something changed with my network. I am living on campus at university and have a stable internet connection 24/7.
I have been in contact with the network manager and he has been monitoring my connection but has not been able to pick up any abnormalities bar a change in speed.
The need to know information would be that I run Windows 7 and I have no direct control over my network access at all. The problem is recent and is affecting all MMO's so is not a server problem. General internet access such as browsing and MSN remains active during the disconnects.
If anyone comes back with a cookie cutter answer I will be very tempted to verbally stab them especially if it involves deleting folders or anything about my hardware. This is not a cookie cutter issue.
Thanks for your time in reading this long winded post.
