Disconnections that affect both a game and the Blizzard Desktop Application itself typically mean that either there is a network/connection issue or that there is something on the system corrupting/interfering with the data for both applications.
Try doing an extended power cycle on your system. Turn off all devices including the modem. Wait 30 minutes, turn on the modem, wait 5 minutes, turn on any network devices, wait 2 minutes, turn on your computer and try the game.
You can try switching your DNS settings to use a free public DNS servers instead of your ISPs Servers:
We do not have individual steps for specific modems or routers so if you need assistance accessing or updating the devices, contact the device maker/provider.
Sometimes firewall or routing software/hardware will have some advanced settings to prioritize and manage types of network traffic. Normally that is not an issue but we have seen situations where it can interfere with the delivery of the data for our games/voice chat.
Let’s try turning off these features:
RoG (ASUS Routers Only)
Security firewalls (Some ISP provided modems)
Not all devices will have these options and the steps for turning these functions off will be different depending on the make/model/software version of the devices and programs involved. If necessary look at the documentation for your security and routing products to find out how to turn these options off.
In some cases there is a corrupt or misconfigured setting within the router or modem. We cannot say what that might be offhand but the easiest way to resolve these conflicts would be to factory reset the router and/or modem.
You may need to look up your specific model for the steps on how to do this and in some rare cases you may need to have this done by the ISP. Feel free to reach out to them for assistance if necessary.
Let’s manually clear the Battlenet Desktop Application and all supporting data from the system. This will not remove existing game clients.
- Open file explorer/file manager (Right Click Windows Start)
- Navigate to the folder where the desktop application would normally be installed. Delete that folder if it exists (usually program files x86)
- Type the following into the address bar (not the search bar): %APPDATA% and press enter.
- Delete the Bnet and blizzard folders inside the appdata folder if they exist.
- Repeat steps 3 and 4 with %PROGRAMDATA% %LOCALAPPDATA% and %TEMP%
- Empty the recycle bin.
- Now reinstall the app to the C: Drive.
Try running your system in selective startup mode: https://battle.net/support/article/200483
Create a new administrator account: Creating a New Administrator Account - Blizzard Support
Once the account is created, shut down the computer, wait 60 seconds, restart, log into the new profile and try the app/client.
That should cover most issues but if the troubles persist then getting some good connection data can help dig into this further.
WinMTR: Running WinMTR - Blizzard Support
Its best to run this test while playing and while encountering the issue. Each test should be about 10 minutes long so if this is something that takes a while to replicate the best course of action is to run the test in the background while playing, stop and restarting every 10 minutes or so until the issue happens, then save that data for analysis.
