Sometimes I can log in and fly around/ground mission before my internet connection drops. 70% of the time the internet connection drops anywhere between login screen to retrieving maps.
It's definitely STO causing this as nothing is running and I can not reconnect to the internet whilst STO is open.
More worrying for me, is that I had this problem with Champions...however never really tried to fix it for Champs as I thought it was a pile of steaming donkey turd (but that's another matter). I hope this isn't a sign of the future for me and STO as I've enjoyed what I've seen so far!
Anyone got any ideas as to what might be causing the problem and any possible fixes?
Ok, that is strange.
I assumed that you are dialing directly into the internet without a router.
First you have to find out, where the error is located.
The question is, if really your internet connection goes down (--> your router or your inernet line has a problem) or this problem occours only @ your computer. To test this, try to go with another computer / laptop to your internet, over the same router while you canīt access from your computer.
press the "start" icon (botton left corner of screen) and type in into the filed: cmd and press enter --> a dos box pops up. There type in: ipconfig /all
right klick --> mark, mark the output of your main local area networ - card press enter to copy it.
Post it here, 1x before you have this problem and 1x while having this problem. But erase the MAC-adress/Physical adress before posting! (even if itīs not really bad).
And that's it oh, i had to close the STO client to enable to post this lol
So if your internet connection is down, ipconfig /all only gives you out this three lines of your main adapter?
Do you still have access to your network? (shared folder @ other computer)?
Test if you can ping your router (type in ping 192.168.1.1 into your cmd-box).
Deactivate your IP v.6 protocoll and test it again, maybe the game doesnīt like it ;-)
