    Im getting disconnected a lot. Im suspecting that my internet connection just disconnects from time to time and then gets reconnected right away. It happenes so fast that I don't notice it when surfing, only when playing games.

    My question is, does anybody know how to test my suspicion?
    Hear ye, of the dragon, Smoke is his name.
    Solely surviving the fires,
    and sad and angry he became.
    Until his angre became dismay,
    as the elders sent him away.

    Now we can hear his wings, once a year,
    And, his empty cry we fear.
    Sad old Smoke, out there in the rain,
    We can feel your suffering, we can feel your pain.

    Go to a command line by typing "cmd" in the run dialog on the Start menu. Ping the server by typing "ping ip address" and you can see if you're getting packet loss to the server. If you have a router you might have a log of what goes and it may show that it is being disconnected.

    - It's who you game with.

      are you using a splitter? if you do, just remove it and see if things will get better. I am using an ATI AIW and had a splitter for TV and cable modem, it was the culprit for my intermittent disconnetions.

        I have it on every server I join.
        What I really need is a way to find out if it's just my provider that periodically stops sending information to my modem, if you know what I mean. It would be like ten times a day.
        Can I download something that will stop downloading if my provider stops sending information? I think most of the time downloading will be resumed when your connection is back up, won't it?

        I find it difficult to make myself clear, because my native language is Dutch (that, and it's late).

          Your English is better than my Dutch! If you hadn't said anything, I wouldn't have known that English isn't your native language!

          If the disconnects are very quick, I doubt a download would be interrupted... maybe just a slight hiccup in the overall speed, but nothing to really notice. When you have the connection problems can you look over at your modem or router and see if the lights are acting weird?

            No, I did look a few times when I got disconnected but noticed nothing special.
