Early toady I was able to log onto STO just fine from both of the computers in my home. Starting two hours ago I can log into the character screen but the get stuck at "retreiving maps". It happens on both of my computers at the same time. My internet connection is fine as I can log on here and other web sites. I rebooted one of my computers and ran virus scan on it. All of that was fine. i still can't get past that screen. Any thoughts or help? I figure its got to be on cryptics end but no one esle seems concerned so I don't know. I am getting a little frustrated.
For good connections, column 1 and 3 have values around 500 kb/sec (outgoing/incoming), column 2 has values around 20 kb/sec (transfer rate). If the values in these columns is less than what is expected you may have filtering or blocked ports either on your personal network or from your ISP.
