Hey Folks, just a heads up...I was having issues with server disconnect and rubberbaning.
I pulled my router logs and found it was blocking packets...even expected ones. I had to go into firewall setting on my router and turn off "Stateful packet inspection" and make sure both UDP and TCP filtering are set to Endpoint Independent. I found to game played grate after that...so now I have narrowed down the problem and will update if I can fix it safely.
A WORD OF WARNING: STATEFUL PACKET INSPECTION IS THERE FOR A REASON...TURNING IT OFF COMES WITH RISKS. I ONLY SUGGEST THIS AS TROUBLESHOOTING...PLAYING WITH SOMEOTHER SETTINGS SUCH AS TIME OUT MAY FIX THE ISSUE AND ALLOW YOU TO KEEP "STATEFUL PACKET INSPECTION" ON.
