I've been having the same problem. Network disconnect is happening virtually every other game. It seems to have become noticeably worse ever since the PTR went live. Extremely frustrating to say the least. Please investigate Blizz, would be appreciated.

Any network techs see anything wrong with my trace routes or path ping?

I have never had an issue with lag since launch. However the last 2 weeks have been horrible. The game lags terribly and then I'm dead. Now tonight, in about a half hour span I've have 2 game disconnects one from battle.net completely. I've checked my internet and its working fine, plus other games play fine. Will Blizz ever chime in on this?

Hey Blizzard, thanks for the technical support. I thought I posted this in the tech support forum. No one works here I guess..

dont expect that every thread posted will get an answer. inculding yours.
besides i already told you what was up with your trace.

you need to look at your equipment and make sure its functioning correctly. then look at your ISP.
hop#2 shows request timeouts because it couldnt communcate with the server.

I have same issue too. I'm disconnecting every 20-30 minutes and also some places. Example I got Network Disconnect in "Arreat Crater" like 10 times. Other one is "Hall Of Damned". I'm getting these disconnections, generally when I'm entering some places. Isn't there any fix of this?

Normally I can play other online games without any issues except Diablo.

Yay! I love losing my stacks of valor thanks to random network disconnect. Second time this has happened today.

No I don't use a router, if my connection goes out it's out for a few hours(cable).

My music is still streaming, and I'm still online in D3, fix your crap servers already this is getting old.

I had the same problem with my WW Barb, changed the display to windowed (fullscreen) and that did the trick for me.

Just got another network disconnect after opening a rift. Thanks Blizz, I lost 5 fragments, pools of reflection, and was assessed a repair bill for being slain in combat. I'm not a happy camper.

This happened yesterday too. I didn't notice the death penalties then, but I did today. What a bunch of crap.

Question: If network disconnect occurs in HC play, is the character killed????? If it does, it's a real discouragement to ever play HC, just to randomly have the game end. It's bad enough to get one-hitted from a bomb being lobbed from something off-screen.

Sometimes, they are killed. That is part of the price of playing HC. Most folks try out SC first to make sure they have a stable connection and no graphics related DC issues.

I've came back after taking a long break from D3 and I can't play 20 min without getting disconnected from the server. Never had any problems before with this game. Same hardware. Same internet. Same quality of internet, since that's what I do for a living.
Been trying off and on for a week or so and crash in the first Church area, at random. Outside the game is doesn't seem to disconnect me.

I had the same issue. I've desinstalled NV Geforce 340.52 drivers for older ones. Works fine now. I hope it may help you.
