Never in the past, now everyday. Can login only once in a blue moon. This only game that does it, my internet is great.

Seems like you guys are having an even worse time than me then. Weird that we are having such different experiences of the same issue.

Also, unless I'm mistaken, connecting to the login server would be done through eqemulator and not p99's servers. I checked on eqemu forums and found this post that appears to be the same problem. Unfortunately it doesn't offer much help.

I'm not sure where they got this IP address from, but trying to ping that one times out for me also. When I ping www.login.equemulator.net I get 23.202.231.169 for the IP and it pings without issue, at this time. I will try again to see if this changes when I'm having trouble connecting.

All of this ignores the fact that when I'm having the issue and am able to get to the character select screen it's about a 50/50 chance that I get in and have some zoning issues when I do. These could be unrelated however. I'm not sure.

Try running a traceroute by opening up cmd prompt and typing tracert followed by the ip address of the destination. Example: tracert 23.202.231.169

This should show you the different locations that your connection is using. You may notice a problem with something along the path.

Yeah, I have been waiting to troubleshoot more, but haven't had any issues the last couple days here either.

Hello friends,

If this requires its own thread just let me know.

I recently installed P.99 per one of.. Several youtube videos, and I can see the Server List however the list is empty?

I did have the standard EQ installed with 25/25 expansions, and on the notifications it says that I have them installed..

I completely removed every trace of EQ and Daybreak games prior to attempting EQ.99 installation.

Anyone have ideas on what I'm doing wrong?

I have been experiencing similar problems as well. Using the same WiFi I have been for years nothing changed but can’t get to the character select screen. I can however login to other severs and live just fine, and can also login just fine if I use my hotspot on my phone but don’t really want to rely on my hotspot when playing. Internet speed tests all say very fast, can stream movies and do everything else just not p99. It’s been 4 days now I must be missing something

Since it works from your hotspot it's a routing issue with your ISP. These happen from time to time, and you can really only wait it out.

A fast connection does not mean that it is a good connection. Latency, jitter and packet loss are more important when it comes to p99. If I had a problem logging in I would run tests for those issues. Solar flares and cyber attacks are also causing widespread internet problems.
