#532812 One of the dataservers was having some issues earlier. Seems to be stable now, but we are making some changes in the back-end regardless over the next few days which should help.

#533426 Hi, there.

Internet keeps on disconnecting many times while I am flying in Vatsim, no matter what Server I'm in.

I am not sure if it has to do with any of the addons I use while flying:
vPilot
Navigraph Charts Desktop
Sibrief/Simbrief Dowloader
Servinfo
Chrome/Google

I was making the connection via Wi-Fi. Thinking that the signal was not strong enough, I purchased a Wi-Fi repeater, and the problem was the same.

After that, I called the ISP provider and they put me a dedicated IP Address, but the problem persisted.

Then, I decided to connect my computer via a LAN cable to the repeater, but the problem still continues.

I would need at least 30 feet of cable to connect to the router, but I want to connect via Wi-Fi.

Any ideas?

#533441 do you have the correct ports forwarded in your router? Will edit and provide a link to the related posts in the vPilot help section shortly

Hi, Richard.

I just followed the link you gave me. It seems I needed to allow some of those programs in the firewall. Now everything is working great.

Thanks a lot!
