The past 3 days (nothing has changed on my compute at all) my vent will randomly disconnect at completely random intervals. It takes a moment to actually disconnect, and when it does it is only disconnected for a very short time and immediately logs back in. Nothing else connected to the internet will stop working, League of Legends goes without a hitch, my Trillian stays connected, just vent disconnects.

I can't figure out why it is disconnecting.

keep in mind, the network path to the vent server is probably different than any other connected service.

the next time it happens, run a traceroute to the server and post the results:

[FONT=Verdana]start > run[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]cmd {hit enter}[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]tracert serverhostname(found in server setup)


[FONT=Verdana](example: tracert )[/FONT]

also perform a bandwidth check - [URL=""][/URL]

does the vent ping show abnormally high numbers before the disco?[/FONT]

The disconnects are coming in more frequently now. I am the only one in our vent having these problems. No I do not get a higher ping when I am disconnecting. It just randomly drops and reconnects. I just disconnected from vent 3 times during a 20minute game of League of Legends, and 3 more within 5 minutes after the game.

Scratch that, I caught a disconnect in the process it had an 18k ping roughly and did a tracert, it had basically the same exact results as the previous one i posted.

So far I am on about 11 d/c's in 30min without anything else going out. All my tracerts I have done look roughly the same with nothing looking to abnormal.

have you tried power-cycling the router

in vent setup/misc tab, try setting 'process priority=high'

Reepa 12-08-2011 03:30 PM

I have reset the router and modem a good dozen times.

Yes I have checked the process priority around to real time and high and all the others.

I am checking another vent right now.

It just seems that Washington DC vent server is causing a problem.

Prog-Rocker 12-08-2011 04:45 PM

i'm beginning to wonder if there's a backbone issue as all day my forum refreshes have been really slow and my network goes thru the DC area.

Reepa 12-08-2011 05:15 PM

I have been on a different server after all that and I have had not 1 issue. A friend I am playing with it who was disconnecting from EVERYTHING is not having any problems either.

Reepa 12-08-2011 05:17 PM

It's been this way for me for at the very least 3 days.
