i still have the suspicion that Cryptic/PWE is kinda blocking some of the ip?s...
NCC53702, you've pretty well summed up my reaction to this thread! This place has hopped up from 34 pages to 38 pages (mostly with new folk being effected) since night before last. This problem is definitely spreading.

And I also agree that this problem is likely somehow rooted in some glitch on the Cryptic/PWE end that's somehow blocking user IP addresses and causing connection failures.

I logged in twice yesterday. Haven't tried again today, though I did check and made sure that I still have the same IP address I had yesterday. Really hoping it still works, when I give it a go in a little bit.

Averydd, make sure to time your modem and router disconnect in such a way that it allows for a maximum disconnect time, after the stated time and date of IP address expiration. To confirm IP address expiration, simply go to 'CMD' and then type 'ipconfig/all' and make a note of when the IP address will expire. Then disconnect sometime before that stated time and leave it disconnected for 8 hours or longer, after that stated lease expiration time. Hopefully, that'll be enough time for someone to pick up your old IP address, thus granting you a new one.

Also, with any luck, Cryptic/PWE will have resolved this problem, for everyone effected, before you have to go through that trouble. Looking at the latest Tribble patch notes (which will likely hit Holodeck tomorrow), those notes did indicate both a fix that was causing people to crash when accessing the Tailor and "general server stability maintenance". So, here's hoping everyone effected gets magically cured of this problem by tomorrow!
