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
