Help with connection
This is very frusterating for me and I'm sure it has been for other people. I finally got back to CoA and yay, time to play! But, I've noticed recently that whenever I log on, my connection always dies on me after several minutes into the online play. Can someone please list some possible reasons as to why this is happening so I can fix it please? I've been missing out on some pretty epic stuff because of this and it's killing my CoA experience and fast…
We need details on your system. How exactly the connection dies, etc.
Under Control Panel, go to Administrative Tools->Component Services and go to Event Viewer.
Under the Error or Warning display groups (there should be a ton of different errors) look for the one which happens when your connection drops.
If your internet connection and/or network connection are fine - I've seen this happen with gamespy based games a bunch of times before. Rather than connecting through the server browser, choose "Join LAN Game" instead of "Join Internet Game", choose "Direct Connect" then paste the Arabel server ip and port in there.
You can just copy and paste this;
If your internet is being funny, though, then this won't help at all.

use: arabel.ender.com:5121 so that if the IP address changes, you'll still connect.
