disconnecting from (any) game server every 30 mins

hi,

as title suggests, I tried looking up the problem online. some suggested that it's about my router dhcp settings leasing an ip address for 1 hour, and renewing it every 30 mintues causing the disconnect so i just put a static IP in my ethernet settings (I use a direct cable) but that didn't help.

what can I do to resolve this? thank you in advance

Have a look at your network adapter in device manager - right click and select properties - click the power tab - untick "allow the computer to turn off..."

Are you connecting by wire or wireless?

If wireless do the same for your wireless adapter card.

Yes or borrow another router and try that.
