Default Need some help in a big way

ok heres my problem. Every time i log into ffxi. about 5minutes i start to DC. but the thing is. it says i DC due to "Timing out" and its not just one time. its over and over and over. ive DC'd because of "Time out" like 20 times today (seriously) seems to only be my ffxi havin problems like this. even if im just logged into the viewer. This is the first time ive had a problem like this. Anyone know whats wrong and/or how to fix this?

Thank you.

I had that one time right after ToAU came out.

I just reinstalled PoL (didn't touch FFXI) and it all worked.

Good luck.

I've noticed over the years that FFXI is finicky about your connection, if it detects it's dropped below normal a few times it'll boot you regardless about how it looks at the time of the boot. Also I'd run some scanners to check for some nasty stuff causing it on your pc. At the same time, you can check some of the devices between your pop and pc. Some bad routers or cables may be causing that, or overheating.

ffxi getting more finicky? hmm... i went from hardwired to wireless and i got the opposite effect (amazingly)

in any case, there is tech support on POL's site supposedly. when i told a GM about how the PS2 version of FFXI would hang when talking to the coin guy in aht urgahn they directed me there for troubleshooting.

kinda makes you wonder...

anyways. yeah. check Playonline.

one thing you might want to give, is when did it start happening, or when did you notice at least, your computers specs, your connection specs, and what other things youve already tried and compared (as you said only ffxi seems to suffer from this.)

Still having problems . but i've figured out when the problems started. it's was right after i downloaded the Devifoxx dat collection. it was actually my sister that pointed out. After she downloaded it she started having problems as well. I'm not sure if that is the reason this is happening or not. but it's definitely something that should be looked into. If push comes to shove ill end up just reformatting my laptop. Just as a precaution. With all the freaky key loggers and shit roaming around it could be anything. better safe then sorry i suppose.
