Hi,

I, now and then, play some online games (dark age of camelot, legendary champions most of the time) and i get random 'connection lost' problems. I can never play for more than 1 hour at most.
Running windows 7, belkin router, cable connection. Malwarebyte's antimalware and avast antivirus. Disabling those 2 programs don't work neither, the problem persists.
Where should i start looking? Using windows firewall.

Thanks already, should you need more info, don't be shy

Do other Internet connections fail when you can't connect to the games any more?

no, it's really weird: i'm running around in a virtual world, suddenly all npc's freeze or disappear and 30seconds later i get a message: you lost connection, or you went linkdead or something. it never appears that the internet stopped working.

Hello,

Perhaps, port forwarding of those games might help. Here's a guide for Dark Age of Camelot. For the rest fo the games, you may need to find out the Port Nos. that they are using. Here's the Port List and locate your Games.
