Q. What is a EA Disconnect.
A. Because EA activley streams to stat servers, if there is a problem with this connection it will auto drop u from that game.

Q. How do i know i have them?
A. You should be able to play the game fine for around 10-20 minutes. You will then be kicked with a message "failed to connect to EA" or something like dat

Q. Why is this ?
A. This is 2011 and for all new routers, Systems and those real Gamer systems this should not be a problem. This came about when EA implemented the new streaming, it wont affect u on BF2. It will affect u on Fifa, BC2 etc.

----- Lets Fix it -----

Most Common Causes
Broken UPNP on your router. Disable it.

- This is post 2009 routers. Some 2009 / 2010 Routers will come under this. Log into your routers backend. Disable UPNP and a default PAT system will kick in. This will make ports forward more stable

Firewall Blocking / etc
- Boot MSconfig in start. Disable ur Firewall and AV if its a windows based one. Disable any other process there that might affect u and reboot.

ECN Packets has been enabled by a Net Speed Tool

To fix this :
1. open a CMD prompt AS ADMINISTRATOR
2. type "netsh"
3. type "int tcp set global ecncapability=disabled"

ECN packets are Refused by EA. These are FAKE packets to fool the connection.

Router Firewall problem

Disable ur Routers firewall (To test only)
Or use DMZ this will put the device on the outside of the firewall.

You have unistalled Nortan like 5 years ago

Nortan installs itself inside ur Drivers. It will create a nice little nest and any verson if removed will stay behind. This can be trigger by something as simple as a ram upgrade to kick u of the net. Google Nortan removal tool.

Forward the port

Clean the Host File

More then one PC is trying to play BF3 at the same time
This will cause disconnects as the port is the same for every launch it appears. Use this guide located here in order to apply a different port. Be very very carefull and take it step by step

Should I delete my windows system 32 folder as well as disabling my firewall and removing Nortan?

funny

Nortan Installs to your Drivers. If you have removed it , it is still present on your system years later. After even 3-4 years a simple Ram upgrade can trick Nortan that such a system change has happened (it will think a virus is on ur system) it will just block the net. This truely is fail software

Firewalls are designed to block Net connections - So if you have a problem with a net connection then disableing it is usually first step to see if its the firewall at fault.

Yeap. I've tried all your advise, but still got ea connection problem. It definately seems to be problem of EA server's because I could Normally play for 4 hour and after I disconnect by myself, It happens again. I'm getting really tired of it. It doesn't make any sense.

Hmm buddy atm its a u know ish time, once things get underway hopefully u will get better. 4 Hours is a pretty long time , The only last thing i did not enclude is a host file fix

2 seconds

http://www.ehow.com/how_5890632_fix-windows-hosts-file.html [ehow.com]

Pretty sure that explains it simply enough basically wipe ur hosts file

Part from that if ur on a Wireless connection -Wireless sucks for gaming - Water will absorb wireless. You can see this just by whackin a glass of water next to your router.

Id say wait a few days tho , r u on wirelesS?

I get this frequently. But I play on PS3 which hooks through my router. However, I also get this when I plug directly to my cable modem. If I'm lucky, I can play for 15-30 mins, then I'll get disconnected. If I'm unlucky then it typically happens during my first 10-20 mins of playing. Pretty annoying. Any suggestions for console users?

Same thing bud, ur connecting on kinda the same way as a pc does to the stats server. Ether disable upnp or forward the ports on ur router. The ports are listed here:

Hey ThesusKhan I've tried all of the above to no avail. Still getting kicked off after a short period on the EA/DICE servers for PS3.

The exhaustive list:
-upnp off
-ports forwarded
-dmz mode to ps3
-NAT is open
-Bandwith is more than acceptable, etc...

My connection isn't bad, and I've had NO problems with Bad Company 2/ any other games applications. Unfortunately, I can't say these are all fixes for the PS3. I just really want to enjoy a good game or two! All my friends are on and I won't be able to play next week >_<
Is there anything I'm missing per chance?

I put up yet ANOTHER disconnect thread a little while ago:

This is a anti virus software. It is up to the user if he runs it or not. The thing i mention in bug post if a user HAS REMOVED IT IN PAST then it is still on his system TODAY> thus he needs to download a removal tool to get rida it.
