In order to consolidate reports of various connection issues, I'm creating a single thread for such reports.
If you are experiencing a connection issue -- cannot connect, get frequent disconnects, etc. -- please read through this thread to gain player insights and feel free to post about your issues, as well. I suggest that if you are experiencing the same issues as someone who previously posted in this thread, you quote their post in providing your report, so that we can easily see trends and growing issues.
