I am coming from Georgia and mine is currently running like a broke leg dog. 7:50 Easter Time US, March 3, 2015.

I'd like to see some traceroutes from people in the US who are _not_
having a problem. My guess is that that their route to our server will
be the same from Telia onward, as that's the transatlantic part of the
trip, which would make it unlikely that Telia's backbone is part of the
problem---and my guess is also that none of them will be routing through
AT&T.

Where geographically are you guys who are having a problem? From looking
up the thread, I see CA, MI, and TX.

may i add that i am getting very slow response playing OFFLINE?
To have the map loaded after choosing it i have to wait 15-30 seconds until its beeing ready to press NEXT..
I tried now on both of my PC and I am starting to think that the issue is connected with SSD drive, i never had issues on PC with standard hard drive (i mena where the system is installed)

Possible soution

Might not be the network. It might be the router/wifi services.

For those of you having trouble, what router are you using?

I'm using an At&T U-verse NVGS89. The wifi crapped out on me this morning, and I connected to the router via an ethernet cable. Vassal has been working like clockwork since.

This is a good point. Is everyone having a problem on AT&T using wireless? If everyone is using wireless, then it would help to know what routers you all have. If someone is having this problem and is using a wired connection, then that too would be helpful to know.

AT&T with a NVG510 router wired.

Playing or viewing a game is almost impossible any time before 2am US central.

You guys who are having this problem need to start talking with AT&T.
I recommend that _everyone_ with the problem do this, as multiple
complaints it makes it more likely that someone will take us seriously
and gives us more chances to get an answer about what's wrong.

I have notified the three guys I know using AT&T that are having issues to let their ISP know they are having issues.

Another failure tonight. Only the AT&T guys couldn't get a snyc. Everyone else (Comcast, Time Warner, and a Canadian ISP) had no issues what so ever. The AT&T guys are going to call AT&T, but were not hopeful...

Also having the same issue's in our Devil's Cauldron Campaign game. We played Where Eagles Dare campaign from June of last year and finished in January with no problems in connectivity or synching. Our new Campaign, which started out fine the first few weeks (end of January) has been nothing but aggravation the past 5 weeks with me and one other AT&T user, the other 3 players involved are having no issues, but neither do they have AT&T as their ISP.
We are the same players from the first campaign, the only difference is that we are playing on Thursday evenings instead of Tuesday evenings.

Spent an hour with AT&T live chat earlier today, with no solution. I have a wireless router 3801HGV.

Would like to hear more from the person about switching the DSL to Ethernet.

I have not had any trouble since I started using the ethernet cable rather than the wifi connection. I can't explain why only the Vassal program and website seemed to have trouble with my wifi to computer connection, but it appears that is the case. Been fine for a week now.

BTW, AT&T is now also bouncing email from vassalengine.org because they think it's spam. I get all such bounces because I'm postmaster here, and every single one has been a password change request or a topic notification from our forum---that is, it's all legitimate mail which the recipient asked to receive.

The error message I'm getting in the bounce messages is this:
<xxxx@att.net>: host aln-mailrelay.att.net[12.102.252.75] said:
521-62.210.178.7 blocked by sbc:blacklist.mailrelay.att.net. 521 DNSRBL:
Blocked for abuse. See http://att.net/blocks (in reply to MAIL FROM
command)

AT&T's form for getting off their blacklist assumes that you've been sending spam, so requires you to specify what you've done to mitigate the problem---which is, in our case, nothing, because the messages AT&T has identified as spam are not spam. So far as I can tell, my filling out that form a week ago had no effect.

If you're an AT&T customer, please also complain to them that they're blocking legitimate mail you'd like to receive.

Did they have any suggestions at all about what could be wrong? It's
obviously something AT&T changed, whether on their own network or as
part of a router update---otherwise it wouldn't be affecting AT&T
customers so uniformly.

He had no idea other than to contact them again while the problem was occurring so they can port into the computer that's being affected. Our next Campaign play isn't until this coming Thursday. so we will see what happens then.

I got AT&T's attention on Twitter. I'll keep you posted as things proceed.
