Ok.... so i was having massive issues with staying connected. I kept getting error 4001... was driving me nuts. I tried pretty much every thing I could think of to fix it.

I have an older board gigabyte x58-ud7.... and i'm using on board network adaptors.

It finally occurred to me to check their site, and sure enough there was an updated driver as of December 2011.... installed it, and I haven't had a problem yet.

So if you're having trouble.... check your network site, especially if you're on a realtek chipset.

Newb response here, but what is a driver and how does one update it???

If you go to the manufacturer's website.... they'll usually have a support/download section. Takes a bit of digging usually, but getting up to date is worth it. Before I could stay connected more than 1/2 an hour.... since updating, been on for much long than that.

This actually worked for me! I'm no longer disconnecting every 30 minutes (on the dot).

Coincidentally, my network adapter released a new driver on the same day I started getting regular disconnects, Jan 20.

Thank you so much, I can now play in peace!

When I log on to my game everything is fine until I get to my server choice. Servers don't even pop up to choose from. It's just blank. Then I get error 4001. Anyone else having this problem??
