Can't reconnect to Turbine for an hour after exiting the game or being disconnected
I've had this chronic problem ever since DDO got Update... 11, I think it is?
It's been going on for awhile, though it's not a 100% occurrence. It's closer to 90% occurrence.
I'll exit out of the game, or get disconnected, and then try to log back in.
"Connecting to Login Server (Attempt 1 out of 20)
Connecting to Login Server (Attempt 20 out of 20)"
And then it fails.
It happens no matter which game I exit out of or get disconnected from. DDO affects LOTRO and vice versa.
In a word, it's annoying. It means server-hopping is no longer feasible.
The time it happens seems to be random, too. Sometimes it resolves in half an hour. Sometimes, the problem still persists two hours later. It's hard to tell at times.
Considering I don't see too many other people complain about this problem, it obviously exists on my end. What can I do to fix this?
I don't know what information to provide. I'm running Broadband internet, connected to it wirelessly (and yet I tend to have good ping, so it's working for me) Might I need to open a port? Or perhaps there's a setting somewhere? I'm using Windows' native firewall, as well, so if I need to make a modification there, I can.
EDIT: One thing I forgot to mention is that this only affects Turbine games. I can play, say, Allods Online, quit out of it, and log back in no problem. Same for any other MMO. It's just Turbine's servers that give me grief.

Beauty is not a feminine trait. Strength is not a masculine trait.
Have you gone through the steps listed in the sticky 'Common Technical Issuses'?
- “I cannot connect to the game or the game launcher cannot connect.”
SYMPTOMS: The game launcher gets stuck at “Getting data centers”, “The Default Data Center is Unavailable” or “Attempting to connect Retry 1 of 2”, gives an error “Object reference not set to an instance of an object” or otherwise cannot launch when you are attempting to log in and select your world server.
