I have been suffering, and i mean SUFFERING, for about a week with disconnects and reloads. The LAG was just soooo bad. I was even blaming one of my fellow Glitches because it became worse every time she logged on [or so it seemed].
I upgraded Java, upgraded Flash and checked my modem and wireless router, which I think once I reset the router that's when most of the problems cleared up.
Well I just played ONE whole hour with no interruptions. What a dream.. I wish I didn't have to do RL stuff.
Some even recommend clearing your cache, but I would only do that a last chance because you lose too many streets, passwords, etc.
I am not a high tech person, just tried some "old" procedures the more educated have shared with me over the years.
Good Luck :)
