Hi,

I'm building an application that uses a Socket to connect to a server over TCP. When I'm running the application, I sometimes get disconnected (with or without a "connection reset by peer"-error). It's almost sure that the server didn't disconnect me. After I get disconnected, my internet connection is down (also on another computer behind the router), and I have to reboot my router to get it back working.

Could this have to do with my (NAT)-router? If so, how can I fix this (where do I have to look for)?
Is there any way to solve this in the Java-code?

Thanks for any help.

It sounds like there's a problem with your router. It's extremely unlikely that anything you send in a random socket could cause the router to drop all connections for all devices until it's rebooted.
