Constant disconnects
 
Upgraded my internet, same ISP, just faster speed but it came with a new modem/router.

Now my cmud is constantly disconnecting, especially if i idle and don't send any commands.

Anyone know of any settings on my computer that i need to reset that can fix or update my system so this doesn't happen? If i'm playing other online games I'm fine, so im doubting it's the actual connection or modem, but my MUD gaming seems to have come off as the loser in this upgrade :(

The first thing to check is whether the problem is on the mud server. Are other people on this mud having problems? Do you have this problem on a different mud?

Indeed that was the first thing i checked :x

Tried adding port forwarding to port 23 as an exception, but still no luck.

Maybe your Keepalive settings are screwy.

It'll probably be the new router. I started having the same problem after a similar "upgrade".
