Hourly disconnects (SOLVED)

Recommended Posts

I have been experiencing periods of hourly disconnects with EL, which can be deadly in invances and instances, but believe the problem is solved now.

The issue was IP DHCP lease period from my router was set to 1 hr, when renewing the lease it would disconnect. It doesnt always disconnect, depending on the availability of the DHCP server, so the problem has been intermittent.

I changed the lease period (on the router, you need admin access) to 100 hours, that should be enough for some uninterupted gaming :D

Thanks to hatwood for putting me on the right track.


To check your lease period under windows:

open a commandline window

type: ipconfig /all

look for the lease renewal time


I hope this helps other gamers too

Haven't been active lately, so I haven't bothered/needed to fix the problem. Glad it helped, Maxi.

I don't always disconnect upon lease renew, but when I do, it's when the lease tries to renew. Other computers on the same network with hourly renewals are mostly unaffected... seems to be problematic for one computer at once for the most part.
