    Can't connect to server

    I'm trying to log in to the game now for the first time after the update, and it can't connect to the server. I get to the point where it tries to connect 20 times. After that, the screen goes black and it says:

    Connection failed:
    Client timed out the connection

    I'm on the Elendilmir-server. Are there any server problems today?

    Update: I checked my firewall and noticed that TurbineLauncher wasn't on the list. So I added that, removed and re-checked lotroclient, and it still won't work. I'm on XP and haven't had any connection troubles before. It doesn't seem to be related to my computer, because it varies if I only get to the "20 messages of login"-thing before I get kicked out, or if I manage to get to the character screen and "Enter Middle-Earth" before he loads endlessly and ends with kicking me out because client timed out. This happens regardless of my firewall-settings, I've also tried with my firewall disabled.

    Same problem.

    Just writing this post and browsing the forum is extremly sluggish. I have no problems with any other parts of the internet I normally visit. Just LOTRO.

    Did a construction worker digg up a cable close to where you have your servers that might affect a part of the player community depending on where they live? (Im sitting in Sweden if it helps with any checks.)

    In Sweden you say? I'm in Norway. I've rebooted the router and done the trace test (which seemed fine, 20-something steps and no ***), but still the same problem. It still varies if I'm able to get to the character screen or not, but it pings out either there or during the 20 login server tries.

    Maybe closer to us then, but on the other hand Ive had no trouble with most other american sites.

    Either way it seems to be a general traffic problem and nothing Turbine should or could do much about.

    I'm not sure what, if anything, has changed, but it's working now.
