Internet completely going out when I launch the game
New, WishlistPublic


This didn't happen on launch. I was able to play freely, but all of a sudden last night (12/19/13) my internet would completely go out upon launching the game. I know it's not a firewall issue, because it wouldn't make my internet go down completely and I even disabled my firewall to see if that was really the problem.


Legacy ID
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Launch game 2. Wait until I get on "I understand" screen 3. Internet goes out.
Additional Information

I'm not sure if this is something with the game or my computer. But I would really like to know how to fix it either way and I don't have any idea what this could be. Any help would be very appreciated.

I made a Reddit post about this. I'm actually able to launch the game without my internet stopping (Just re-installed the game) but whenever I join a server my ping spikes up to about 1000 but upon leaving the server it goes back down to normal. It's like DayZ is DDosing my internet. :(

well im having a similar problem... when i connect to a server i can join but once im on the server i get the red desynch symbol. after a few seconds it turns into no message received and i get a complete internet disconnect, my router then starts to reconnect...
if i join a friend however, i dont get this problem.. its just when i connect on my own to a server

Any problems playing ArmA2 DayZMod?
Right when you join a server a lot of information about what's going on ingame is synced with the game client. It's possible your router/internet connection can't handle this.

German ISP 'WilhelmTel', dont think this will help you :) 100mbit downspeed
and no i had no problems playin dayz arma2 mod... also what might help is that the game worked before the latest update and I just checked again, if i connect via Friend it works, when i connect by pressing the Play-Button it also works.. only if i connect on the internet-tab it disconnects my internet...
btw sry for my english its not the best :)
