Probably about two weeks ago I found my connection to FFXI would slowly drop out until I DCed. Sometimes it takes a while, up to 20 minutes occasionally. Nothing else seems to be affected. I've had an endless ping to google running during a drop out so it's not your usual network connection issues.

So, I tried connecting through a VPN and now it works fine. Should I be looking to my ISP for answers?
