okay...this has been happening a lot. I will be playing the game for about 10-20 min then all of the sudden I lose connection to the server and it crashes my wireless signal. I try to troubleshoot the internet signal and it wont fix. I have to keep resetting my wireless router. This has been only happening today and only with this game? I am really confused...:confused:

A game should not in any way have any influence on your internet signal or your router.
It could be a problem with your router, or maybe with your internet receiver in your computer/laptop.

Maybe you have problems with your internet connection? Please check that first. If it's not caused by your provider, please post your log.txt files, also be sure that your firewall is not blocking connection to DoF.

Severs are doing fine , nothing down on our end. I really recommend you revalidating your steam files or possibly switching to the website version and see if anything changes.

Re-Validating game files on Steam may often fix start-up issues as well as help player who are experience frequents crashes and other bugs
1) Open Steam find DoF in the Library
2) Right click on DoF, and go to Game Properties
3) In Game properties click on Local Files, and select Re-validate game files.

Also:
1) make sure you restart the computer before playing - if you haven`t this could cause that.
2) Disable Anti Virus and Firewall - and if that works set DoF.exe and or Mithrill.dll as exception
3) Try installing C runtime libraries. http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5555
4) Try getting the latest .Net Framework For Desktop - http://www.microsoft.com/net/download
5) Uninstall the game on Steam (delete local files), and re-download
6) Set Administrative Permissions
-Go to your steam directory ex: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Dawn of Fantasy
-Alter the properties of Dof.exe
-Compatibility Tab Check "Run this program as an administrator" and also check compatibility mode for "Windows 7"
-If you get Microsoft Visual c++ error box, do not close it - just play and ignore the error

And:

To fix this you would need to either set correct Admin permissions, or set a certain folder to be NOT read-only.
1) Click on the organizer button in any folder. And select Folder and Search options. Go to view, and under Hidden Files and Folders, or Drives - click show hidden files.
2) Now navigate to C:/users/YOUR USERNAME/AppData/local/DoF/, Right click on the DoF folder, and select Properties
3) Un-click Read-Only, and click Apply. Select to all folders and sub-folders when prompted.
4) Set Administrative Permissions
-Go to your steam directory ex: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Dawn of Fantasy, right click on DoF.exe and go to Properties
-Compatibility Tab Check "Run this program as an administrator" and also check compatibility mode for "Windows 7"
-If you get Microsoft Visual c++ error box, do not close it - just play and ignore the error

I know that's a mouthful but I wanted to give you any and all the information I can. Let me know if your still having issues.
