Saavick I just saw your comment about bumping the timeout in Discord. I thought that was going to do the trick, because I managed to actually get fully logged into one of my characters. However, I haven’t been able to since.
Additionally, if Client Lifetime means what I think it does, I did not even come close to the default timeout for either of the timeouts listed:
Regarding port forwarding, I never touch it. Everything is default in regards to forwarding, which works fine on all other games, including EverQuest, which is even older than AO as I’m sue you already know
Additionally I’ve connected directly to 2 modems on 2 different networks/ISPs and 1 hotspot without luck. Authentication and Character creation all work fine as well.
I’ll restate here, that the only major difference between when I last played this game in the summer of 2021, and now is that I’m on Windows 11 and any updates to the game. Same router and settings used then as I have now.
In the past I’ve put in my fair share of effort to try to get old games to work on newer technologies, but never one I had to pay for. I probably would have just moved on if it was just a fr00b account. Given I paid $15 (more if you total previous months) I don’t think it is unreasonable to expect some level of official support and playability.
Also wtf is this trash rule that I can’t mention other people because I’m “new” on the forums – I didn’t have a choice but to make a “new” forum account.

Trace looks good…
@Saavick I really want it to be a network issue, but it would mean network issues on 3 different ISPs/Modems. No idea if there are any additional logs I can get access too, but if I could get more details on what is going on it might shed some light on what is going on.
