    I had the same problem with Everquest.
    After updating the firmware on my Linksys router the problem seems to have been fixed. Only 1 disconnect in about 2 weeks.

    Regards,

    Yeah. If you have a router (which I'm assuming you do), go to your router's website and download the newest firmware. I've only heard of this problem with Linksys routers, but I'm sure they happen with other routers. I have this problem every now and then with Counterstrike.

    On a technical note, it's not your internet disconnecting. It's your router not being able to process all the information at one time forcing you to shut down your game so it can recouperate.
