Hi all,

I've got a problem with BF3. Since about 3 days I keep getting thrown out of the game. Regardless which server I am playing in.

When it happens, I get the message:

- Game disconnected: your connection to the server timed out.

I have been playing Battlefield 3 since last summer and have never had any problems.

I don't know if it's of any help, but I tested my internet speed before I joined, and again when I got thrown out of the game. These were the results:

BEFORE:
Download Speed: 23216 kbps (2902 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 9715 kbps (1214.4 KB/sec transfer rate)

AFTER:
Download Speed: 21432 kbps (2679 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 10002 kbps (1250.3 KB/sec transfer rate)

Thanks for taking the time to read this. If you need to know something else, feel free to ask.

Do you literally mean in which server, or do you mean in which country they're hosted?

I mainly play in the servers:

2000_Firestorm_fast_vehicle_spawn_by_DEK
(hosted in Germany)

and;

=PHX= #1 CLOSE QUARTERS 24/7 1000 T www.team-phx.com
(hosted in France)

I've been experiencing this as well, but I've just started playing again after about 2 months.
Disconnects were very rare for me before, and I don't think anything has changed on my end since I was last playing (I have UNpN disabled and everything else recommended)

Yet I'll randomly get booted from the game.

Reading your post it suddenly occurred to me that I've turned on the UPnP just several days ago because of another game. I have just turned it off again and it seems the game is now working like it should.

I don't know if the other guys with this problem have tried turning off UPnP, but it worked for me. At least for now..

1. Log into your modem / router.
2. Turn OFF UPNP.


Turn off PC UPnP Service:

1. Press: Windows-button (the one between lAlt and lCtrl) + R, a window should pop up.
2. Write: "services.msc" (without the ") then press enter.
3. In the list of services, scroll down to "UPnP Device Host", click it and press "Stop service".
4. Now do the same thing but with the service "SSDP Discovery".
5. Exit the window and go to control panel-> Network and Internet-> Network and Sharing Centre-> Change advanced sharing settings (to the left)-> Under "network discovery" select to turn off network discovery
6. SAVE CHANGE

This issue is getting really irritating now - have done all the usual things - sometimes it's OK for a while then reverts back to disconnecting after 10 minutes.

I love this game, but EA/DICE you need to sort these issues out, whether it's at your end, the server host, PunkBuster or wherever, a lot of customers are getting this issue all the time.

You also need to give more reasons to the client as to why we've been disconnected - just saying your connection to the server timed out when I have a 120Mb down and 20Mb up connection doesn't cut it.

I'd be willing to switch on automated reporting of errors if it were an option.

If this game was a phone, laptop, car etc. I would return it and expect a full refund.

Please sort out the connection issues and at least give us info to work from as to why we were disconnected exactly - which server is it talking about?

I'm not buying the BF4 specifically because you can't solve this issue, I've been working on it for 3 months now... I've tried every fix. I REFUSE to buy BF4!!!
