Thank you for your reply. I don't mean to sound rude and ungrateful but I find myself wondering why I should go through all these troubleshooting steps when I can just play another game?
I am connected via wi-fi, unfortunately I don't have an Ethernet cable long enough to reach the router available at this time. I can try and do the troubleshooting steps on the wi-fi.
That is up to you at the end, pathping should give an indication of where the issue lays, but it will not fix it.
Logging into another region swtor servers may in fact be better as the path from your computer to the servers will be different.
