"The game connection has been lost; your client has been disconnected from the server"
No error numbers, booted back to the character screen after 5-10 minutes in game. Cant make any progress in missions before I am booted. The game worked fine on launch day (all other server problems considered) but now it is having this problem nonstop.

Information about my connection:
1. Wired or wireless? Wired connection
2. Firewall software? Windows firewall with D3 exception
3. Antivirus software? Microsoft Security Essentials (disabled real-time protection)
4. Internet Security software? None
5. Network Card Model? Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller
6. Router Model? No router. Direct connection to modem.
7. Modem Model? Cisco model# DPC2325
8. ISP? Charter (east coast usa)

Using an fairly new Asus g74 laptop with minimal things installed on it. Windows 7.

Things I have tried without success:
1. Command prompt: ipconfig /flushdns
2. Forwarded port 1119 on modem
3. Disabled firewall
4. Disabled antivirus

This problem seems to be fixed so far. Been in game for 45 minutes and passed the area I was stuck on for the last day due to the problem.

The only thing I did was:
Log out, on main menu go to options > account, change location to europe. then log in. Now log out and changed back to american servers. Since then I have had no problems, but I don't know if its because of what I did, or perhaps server tech guys fixed a problem around the same time.

So if you are still having the same problem, try logging into the europe servers and then back out, and into the american servers. Hope it is fixed now! Fingers crossed for the next mission.

Getting this too. Playing on my monk and suddenly dc'd again. It's not every 5mins but more like once every 10 to 15. Then after a bit I get error 3007 and get logged out... maybe my error is different.

Oh i didn't see this thread or i wouldn't of started my own. But ya i get the same issue. Though i played an alt with no problem. it only happens to my barbarian main in act 2 and only "seems" to happen in dungeons. Not sure if any of that is relevant.

But ya i played an alt for an hour and a half in act 1 with no issues, but my main i cant go 20 mins without that disconnect message.

All barb players: Switch to an other attack than whirlwind and you should be able to play.
