Hi! i figured this is best forum to post this in cause i would immagine it is a problem with my PC and not the game or internet connection itself. I find that probably 10-15% of the time, when i use Alt + Tab to goto my desktop and check something online while playing WoW i wil be disconnected almost immediately upon opening my web browser and searching for something. My gf plays in the same room as me and i know i DC because as soon as i tab out and go onto the internet it says i have gone offline on her screen, then when i tab back into WoW i am at the login screen with a "disconnected" message. Sooo i know its not my router crapping out like i used to think it was, cause her game never gets interrupted on my old PC which i used for 2 yrs playing wow and never had this problem.

any ideas? or any more info you might need me to post to better help you help me!

Does it happen if you play with the game windowed instead of full screen? Some video drivers I've seen cause a game to "freeze" while in full screen and minimized. Playing with the program windowed removed this freeze.

It would at least be an answer to why it happens even if not a great solution.
