Need way more details. Do you mean the game freezes and you are not able to open a browser? Does it lock up your system completely? What are your system specs? What type of internet connection are you using?
as soon as i log in and choose a toon it crashes my internet ???
any help would be awsome
thx in advance
Heres my system: Windows 7 Ultimate & SP1 ----- 64 bit
MotherBoard: NForce 680i LT SLI -- x64-based PC
Intel Core 2Duo CPU E6850 @ 3000 Mhz
DDR2 Memory: 4 Gig @ 1333Mhz
NVIDEA GeForce GTX 260 Graphics - 896.00 MB
Charter internet: 12 Mbps - Hardwired through Netgear Cable Modem
1.5 Terabytes of Hard Drive Space on 2 Drives.
What happens is this: I log in, Game loads to Character screen, everthing is fine...
Then as soon as I double-click or load character, the game loads up and i'm in for a few seconds...
Bam!!! Server not responding!!! game goes back to log-in screen, Modem resets all the way as if it had been unplugged, (Charter Modem). No other program or game does this. System is totaly stable.
I run Norton 360, and run scans on a constant basis, (including registry).
Please help!! I used to be able to run it, but not since i upgraded my system to 64 bit.
The same thing is happening to me as well. Whenever I log into STO every computer in my house drops an internet connection until I get the SERVER NOT RESPONDING error message and close the application.
Ok, after some advise, I turned off my STAR TREK Voice option, and that seems to do it. No more connection problems. If this is happening to you, just go into Options in the game, and into voice chat and make sure it's off.
Do you know how to check your modem's upstream/downstream signal to noise ratio and power level? If you do, check those to make sure they're in range. If you don't know how to check these, call your ISP's support line and ask them to check. Tell them that you're getting a modem reboot when logging in to your mmo. Make sure you're talking with internet support, video support sometimes forwards your call, but usually blames something outside their responsibilities and ends the call.
Here are desireable levels:
--SNR = not detectible by end user.
--Power = +8 to +58 dBmV
--SNR = +30 to +50 dB (can go as high as +56 dB and stay connected but unstable above 50)
--Power = -15 to +15 dBmV
It is possible to get modem reboots during high activity periods when your levels are out of range. I used to work for a midwestern ISP in the HSI dept.
