Socket Error 10053 Problems
« on: January 04, 2011, 09:43:49 AM »
For the last week, I have been having problems staying connected in chat for more than 20 minutes (with a few exceptions where I am able to stay online for more than an hour).

I purchased a new router last week so I assume that is the issue.

The message I get is 'Socket Error: 10053 : Connection is aborted due to timeout or other failure (Server).

Is there something wrong with the settings on the chat or is it something with the router not getting the right info?

That could very well be it, if that is the only thing that has changed.
