    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... :rolleyes: 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.

    :prop: 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.

    I don't know if this can help you, but battle.net connects on the port 4000.
