Why doesn't FAF reconnect anymore after a player lost his connection for some seconds? I remember that with the introduction of the ICE-client, it wasn't a problem anymore. Now it is a worse as it was before the new protocol it was introduced. Did I miss something, was the support for this feature removed some months ago?
Reconnect after Connection loss
Make sure to update your client to the latest version. There was an update to the adapter that got rolled back: things should be as they were before. But you need to have the latest client.
A work of art is never finished, merely abandoned
I use the updater, so I should always have the latest version. Timeout happens so often these days, it also got me yesterday. My connection was away for 5 seconds, but I timed out for all people.
I can't remember the last time, a player came back from timeout, must be some months.
If your IP address changed during that connection reset by the provider, then it is impossible for the game to reconnect
