Getting disconnected...like, every 5 minutes.
I opened a ticket with support, but in the past two days, they just haven't been helpful. I've done everything, from reinstalling the entire game, I have no addons anyway so didn't have to mess with that, deleted all WoW temporary files, (cache, wtf, interface), updated all drivers, network, sound, video, motherboard, router firmware, windows update, did traceroutes, dxdiags, msinfo, tested x34 vs x64, dx9 vs dx11, full screen vs windowed, disabled firewall, disabled antivirus, forwarded all WoW ports (NEVER had to do that before, btw), power-cycled everything, made a new character on a completely different WoW server...
I am seriously out of things I can try. This SUCKS. BIG. Game is completely unplayable.
By now I've almost come to expect to get dc'd every few minutes, and that's just a shame. Shouldn't have to play like this.
This has been happening since the patch (for me at least), and ONLY since the patch...and ONLY with WoW, so maybe they'll address this issue that apparently many people are having.
to add... its only my account. Tried on the other computer that my wife plays on and its the same thing but she is just fine on her account.
Mine often come with absolutely no warning though - no pet lagging behind me or other freezing, just instant disconnect to the log in screen with zero warning, but able to log back in immediately. Currently, seems to be happening once every couple of minutes, but I've had two or three periods where I've gotten 10-15 minutes in before more DCs.
Any help or acknowledgement from a blue would be much appreciated.
There are two other computers in the room with which we do three-man stuff, and the other two set ups are not experiencing this problem.
I've already tried the removal of the WTF/addons/cache folders.
It seems to come in streaks, like it's area-related, although sometimes I'll also get dc'd in town too. The last really bad streak was around the water sprites in Jade Forest, for example.
Just to be clear, I've gone through all the steps listed here and even traded out cables, so far still getting DC streaks every now and then.
I can get back in quickly, as said before, but the strange thing is the disconnects never come back until I either log-out completely, or close WoW.
I'm begining to think that they put a time limit for game play if so I'm going to cancel payment once again.
Edit: and other online games/services are working as it should, its just WoW.
