Getting Connection Timed Out error - Constantly !

Recommended Posts

I have been trying to fly on your server for many weeks now but I continuously have the same problem EVERY TIME.
Each and EVERY time I get on your server, sooner or later (usually sooner) I get Disconnected and it jams up my shit for minutes before I can do anything on my PC (unless I Alt Ctrl Del fast enough).

More often than not, this happens after I have flown a very long distance trying to find some action and/or just as I'm ready to engage a target.

It is super frustrating.

Please Help.

PS> I am always on SRS any time I am in the server however I rarely hear anyone on any of the specified frequencies.

My PC exceeds the minimum requirements.

I don't have or use Mods

So I managed to speak with one of the 104th Squad members the other day who turned me on to the "autoexec.cfg" file to help eliminate my disconnection issues.

I had 2 days of flawless, issueless flying and had a ball.

But of course there was a new fuckupdate today and now my shit is disconnecting AGAIN.

I have re-installed (copy/paste) that file again 3 times today following the Update and a couple Reboots.

Furthermore, now for the first time ever, I am unable to do a DCS Repair. I get some stupid timeout issue with that now ???!!!   wtf is up with that I wonder.

ANYWAY, now that there is a recent update, does that require that this file be reinstalled again (each time there is an update) ? OR might that file need a little revision on your end to account for DCS's latest BS Update ?

The DCS Repair sorted itself out but I'm lucky if I can fly for 15 minutes before I get the "Connection Timed Out".

Yesterday, I timed out twice in less than 15 minutes.

Does the autoexec.cfg need to be updated occasionally ?

Does anyone read these forums ?

It appears that My MODEM was causing most of my disconnection issues.

I have since obtained a new modem and along with a few tweaks, I have had no issues remaining connected since.
