So since I have come back to FFXI a few weeks ago I have been getting this error message at completely random times and usually multiple times a day. It says, "Connection terminated or not available" and then there's an error code which I can't remember and it says to check my connection and try again.
Sometimes I play for hours and never see this message. Other times it happens every 15 minutes until I get fed up with it and stop playing. I run FFXI in the PlayOnline windowed mode. I play with everything on moderate or low settings. I don't use mods, hacks or anything of the sort (not that I think that would make a difference, but just covering everything). My internet otherwise has no problems. It never goes out or stops working. The internet that I am on does have a rather low upload speed (I think it's 5 or 6 MBPS upload speed and either 10 or 15 MBPS download speed, but I could be completely wrong. For some reason that doesn't sound right now that I look at it), but I have not had any problems when playing other games online with a console or my PC or MAC.
I have also not contacted customer support yet because I have bad experiences with all forms of it so I am trying to leave that as a last resort and just seeing if I can find an explanation and/or solution before resorting to that.
If I think of any other pertinent information I will edit the post, but that's all I have right now. Thanks a lot for any information in advance.
