I tried option one. I will try the other one next.

RE: Connection Lost
Yes internet is stable. Cable internet. 60 mbps. Have done speed tests that show avg. of 45 mbps download & 10+ upload. 44 ping
I will try to get some screen shots of the error messages. Stay tuned.
Question: does my operating system affect things in any way?
Further to what is happening with my connection..........I entered a game to watch tonight. I was not playing. Game was already underway. I was able to see movement for a while and then it stopped. I figured it was locked again and typed "you guys have a gg going here". When they answer in the chat screen it skipped ahead about 4 phases. Went good for a while after that and then it happened again. Stayed locked for a long time but never disconnected like when I am playing. Once I typed in the chat screen I got this.
RE: Connection Lost
Wow. I had no idea there were that many updates. Hard to say which exact version I was using when it worked but the one I have installed now is 13066. Believe the one that worked was in the 12,000 range.
I connect to the lobby and enter a bot there. Doesn't matter if I enter first or my opponent enters first. Whether it's in a bot room or I host or my opponent hosts, the same thing happens. I usually lose connection during my turn but I know too that my opponent will sometimes be on combat move and in my history will show they are on purchase units phase. My screen will lag and then I type something and my opponent replies the history will jump ahead to the phase they are on.
Let me know if there is any more information you may need.
I really hope you can fix this once and for all. Been very frustrating and I feel bad for my opponents as I can only tell if my attempts to fix the problem work by entering a game. This inevitably ends up in me apologizing because it keeps locking up.
I had this problem about 2 years ago and finally got it fixed about 2 months ago. Not sure how it fixed itself but I went through the normal steps (port forwarding 3300 in dlink router, allow TripleA in windows firewall) and it worked for about 2 months. About 2 weeks ago it started again. I play BW V3 mostly but it happens in every map. Sometimes quicker than other times but usually can't get through my turn with a country. Always seems to happen when I move a unit. I go to move it and nothing happens. It just locks. Then I get the "Disconnected" message.
Any ideas of other things I can try?
