FS9 Causing Internet Connection Drop, Please Help!

Thu Aug 09, 2007 7:59 pm

Hi guys,

Over the past 4 or 5 days, whenever I have had FS9 running, my internet keeps disconnecting.
This is just when the program is running as normal without Real World Weather. It's never done this before, but as I say, the past 4 or 5 days it is just constantly disconnecting. I can only get my internet connection back when I reboot my PC, which is a pain in the rear end if I am in flight.

I have done system restores a few times to before this problem was occuring but to no avail. I've also done virus scans and spyware removal and registry cleans, but to no avail.

My internet is fine when FS isn't on. But I turn FS9 on, and within about 5 minutes, my net connection is lost.

This is SERIOUSLY bugging me now...

Any help much appreciated.

Did you read what I wrote properly?

It's happened to me once. All I did was powercycling first the modem, and then the router. If possible, try to powercycle (first shutting it down by pulling the plug, then turn it back on) your modem and router (if available) as well. It helped in my case.

In that case, all you can do is talk to your ISP about this, because there has to be something that is killing the connection when running FS, and perhaps only they may know what it is exactly.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled both FS2004 and AOL, but it is still doing it.
