Im not sure if this is right place to post but... please move it if it doesnt in the catagory.

I got a wireless router, connected to my modem, then router to my CPU.

Other games doesn't disconnect my interent but this does. When im surfing through the servers.
I have googled for solutions but no luck yet. Seems that people have reported this problem too and found out that people who have routers report this problem.

Please help me :)

Was it working prior to the router connection? Can you try connecting it directly to the modem to see if the game still disconnects?

You might also want to look into port forwarding if the game uses a specific port.

Check the port forwarding on the router. It could very well be causing this problem. For more information on port forwarding, see here. You can see if your game is listed there and also find out how to setup port forwarding on your router (many major brands and models are listed on that site).

You might have to refer to your router manual for that information on how to setup for static IPs. Basically you will tell the router not to automatically assign IP addresses to devices connected to your router. This also means that you must assign a different IP address to each and every device that you connect to your router. Otherwise, they won't be able to go online.

You can find out by using ipconfig. Go to Start > Run and type in cmd and hit OK. Then type in ipconfig /all and hit ENTER. It should tell you the DNS Server address there.
