I've been tossed out of my game 3 times today without warning. Each time it happens I hit login again immediately, and it says 'Success!', but then takes me to the realm selection screen and fails at 'Connecting to Server'. A few minutes later, all's well and I can login again.

Is there something I can do to fix this? Is it an error on Blizzard's end?

Lets try power cycling the connection. This will clear out the DNS cache and allow the connection to build new connection information.

Here's how to power cycle:

1. Turn off all computers on the network
2. Unplug the power from the modem and the router (if applicable)
3. Wait about 1-2 minutes
4. Plug in the modem first and wait for it to completely boot up
5. If there was a router, plug the power back in and wait for it to completely boot up
6. Turn on the computers and try the game out

If that doesn't work try flushing the DNS: http://us.battle.net/support/en/article/ip-release-renew-and-flush-dns

Let me know what happens.
