      Connection Problems?

      Hello, fellow Wizards! After a two year break I have returned!

      Anyway it seems as if I am having "connection" problems to Wizard101 as every 15 minutes or so, I get booted from the game as it can't connect. I have never had this problem before and it has been confusing me.

      My internet connection is totally fine, my youtube videos were still loading after I was booted out.

      Is anyone else having this problem, or did I overload my computer, or just what is happening?

      I was having these problems but my wireless was acting up as well so I thought it was that.

      Re: Connection Problems?

      My internet conection isn't the best, but it's normally good enough for me to maintain a connection.

      I've discoverd though that the times I do lose connection it's not so much my download speed (like watching videos) that does it, but my upload speed.

      You say it happens about every 15 minutes or so. Is this the same morning or evening, or is it just some of the time

      Is there someone else using the same router as you that might be uploading something every few minutes?

      Do you have something running on your computer that will run every 15 minutes (give or take) that could be taking bandwidth?


      Moving away from the more software side of it to the hardware side,

      How old are your router and computer. It's possible that something is going wrong with one or the other, but I'd give this lower probablility since you say everything else works OK.

      It happens no matter what time I play. Whether it is morning or night doesn't matter. For uploading things, I'm the only one using the internet at the time and I don't exactly have anything that takes up a lot of bandwidth, unless you count Minecraft, but I don't play the two at the same time.

      My PC is just a year old currently running windows seven and I just received a new router not two months ago.

      However this problem has been going on just these past few days.

      Also my launcher has this problem everytime I open it even though my internet is fine O.o.

      Re: Connection Problems?

      Something to try I looked up on the Microsoft website.

      Make sure that work Offline doesn’t have any check mark in internet explorer. To do so, Open internet explorer > Press Alt key > on top left corner of your toolbar you will see file >click on file and check if there is any check mark on work offline. If yes, then uncheck the option, by clicking on work offline.


      I would also suggest you to run internet explorer troubleshooter and what is causing the problem. To do so, please follow the steps below:
      Open the Internet Explorer Performance troubleshooter by clicking the Start button, and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type troubleshooter, and then click Troubleshooting. Click View all, and then click Internet Explorer Performance.

      Re: Connection Problems?

      I tend to experience connection loss, every now and then or whenever someone uses the home phone (which is just plain annoying) but it's been dropping out much more frequently, I always thought it was just my wireless but it seems otherwise since a few people are experiencing the same thing

      Re: Connection Problems?

      Ryan Emeraldblade's post is a good place to start. It sounds strange to check Internet Explorer for problems with Wizard101, but the launcher uses IE as sort of a mini browser, so anything strange with it will translate over to launching the game

      Your connection dropping when someone uses the home phone may be because it's wireless and its signal is on the same frequency as your wireless router, so when they are both being used the router drops out. If it's still happening maybe one of your neighbors has a new wireless phone or something else is interfering.

      I had the same problem a while back and the techs from my ISP couldn't figure out what was happening. I stumbled across the reason one day. Once I switched phones I had no more troubles

      Internet Explorer is not working offline. I googled the second part as the instruction you gave me didn't work, but nothing was wrong with my IE.

      Maybe it is because my IE is one version outdated? I'm updating it right now to see if it makes a difference.

      Re: Connection Problems?

      I experience the same thing some times, I get booted from the game. However, my connection strength is normal, and I feel as if it's just the game's servers considering that there are millions of players.
