I was disconnected from the server after quitting a Nexus run on my level 71 Druid on Alterac Mountains. I hit "Leave Party", caught a glimpse of Dalaran, and was immediately disconnected. Now, I cannot log back into any character on the realm without being booted immediately after the game finishes loading.
I haven't yet tried logging into a character on another realm, I'll update the post with the results of that in a bit.
I've already tried the usual disable all addons, delete \Cache, etc., to no avail.
Edit: I should add that the loading bar takes maybe 10 seconds longer sitting at 100% than usual when this happens. In addition, I don't even get to see a glimpse of the game world before being disconnected... it goes immediately from the loading graphic to the login screen. I've had issues with being disconnected upon login since 4.0.1 went live, but it's usually resolved after trying again 2 or 3 times. This incident, not so.
Edit 2: The only alt I have on another server is an 11 Blood Elf Mage, and it disconnects too. So it looks like it's account-wide.

This sounds more like a tech issues, Lifetapt.
If a character is bugged, it will typically not affect any of your other characters. Make sure you have tried power cycling your modem and router before attempting to reconnect.
Power Cycle the Modem and Router
Can you tell me a bit more about your connection?
Wired or Wireless?
Modem Type(Cable or DSL):
Yeah I realize now that this thread belongs in Technical Support, my bad.
I'm in the dorms at the University of Central Florida so there is no modem or router to reset, just an Ethernet cable going from the wall to the laptop.
I followed the instructions in another thread directing me to use netstat to find my server's IP and then used tracert. I get request timed out errors from the first hop.

However, I've tried running a tracert to google.com and us.battle.net and they don't work either, so the way the campus network is set up may be throwing off tracert.
I went ahead and made a character on one of the Latin American realms and was able to log in.
Seems like there is an issue with connectivity between my ISP and whatever datacenter the two servers I tried to log into are, which I guess would explain why it disconnected me after leaving the instance and going back to my realm.

Either a firewall is blocking ICMP packets or no path was found.
It looks like most of your characters are on the realm Alterac Mountains
Can you try running a trace to Quel'Thalas and see if you are getting the same timeout results?
Wish there were a way to find out the cause though, since it's not the first time it's happened to me and it only started after 4.0.1 went live
You may need to talk to the university's network admin and make sure they are not blocking any of the following ports.
TCP and UDP Port number 3724, 6112, 6113, 6114 and 4000.
