Getting Connection Interrupted? To-do Checklist! I recently had to struggle with a speacial type of a curse, called the "Connection Interrupted", that would mercilessly interrupt my greatest heroic acts and dumb me out of Diablo into the real world.. This was something I pledged to fight against and to renew my heroic position as the Baal's royal looter.. :hanky: I have seen these kind of connection issues hurting many Diablo fans today and I decided to write about how I came to beat it! I here list all the things I made to finally get to the point where I reached the solution! ( I left out the eating of noodles part because of space and universe issues). - I scanned my computer for Ad-Ware, with two different programs Ad-Aware and Spybot -- I usually don't got viruses thanks to firewall and virus protection -- found 2 cookies *munch* *munch*. - I reinstalled Diablo 2 + LOD (Uninstall +Install, often recommended in this situation), no effect. - I refragmented my Hard Drive just because I was getting desperate.. no effect..although I kinda knew this wasn't an issue of my hardware, it really smelled like a connection lag monster to me.. - Now I summed up some conclusions about the happenings.. I knew I was getting booted out randomly after playing for 10 to 45 minutes. It didn't made any difference if I was actually playing or just standing in town, making jokes about Larzuk etc... My internet stayed up, only Diablo suffered every time the text of doom appeared on my screen!! And I was just about to tell the jokes to Larzuk, duh. - Now I started to fiddle with my firewall, making adjustements and I was more and more focusing to it because I was just recently installed a fresh windows + a new virus scan + Firewall! The trails led me here and I finally decided to shut down my recently installed firewall and made windows firewall to ACT as a one instead. rop: Now I started testing Diablo, I played it for many hours straight in battle.net..wandered trough vast deserts..hungry for.. food.. and finally left my char to idle in town. . . It had worked out for me! I could play Diablo again to its fullest without stopping, ever! (Until the next battle.net lag that is). Now I have to start figuring how to set-up the port forwardings in my fancy firewall program, but until then, I loot in peace.
