I've had this problem for a while, but I'd be on AIM and suddenly, it would say it's reconnecting. The client doesn't know it's not connected for a little while, but sometimes people on the other end would ask why I logged off and logged back on again (meaning the server sees me get disconnected). There would be times where I don't receive messages, or send messages that don't get through, because I don't realize I'm not connected any longer. I thought updating to the new version would fix it, but now it doesn't even tell me when I get disconnected. It's not the school; this problem happens while I'm at home. Anyone know what may cause this?
Probably your internet connection. ;)
Happens to me sometimes too.
But its constant, and my internet connection isn't going down. It's really annoying.
Virus? Spyware? Change your password? Windows Updates? Firewall?
Many things could cause this i guess
No, lately my AIM has been doing the same. I do not get told I am disconnected, just the IM bar in the bottom right corner turns dark red. All my buddies on my list are online like normal, just I can not send IMs or recieve. As soon as I X out of the buddy list, I get "Connection Error" and it only happens here at work.
TTGP, perhaps your work is starting to block the aim servers? I can't get on aim here at work.
We use AIM to talk between hospitals. There are 5 hospitals in our region and we are all on the same team (if we are in the same department) It beats calling 10 people every day.
This used to happen to me aswell, but i download a much older version of aim and it no longer happens. I have aim (sm) or something now and I don't get signed on and off every 15min or so.
You should all upgrade to gaim.
gaim doesnt support video, at least i think it doesnt
I'd say go w/ trillian myself....
Fuck gAIM unless you are on linux. Trillian FTW. Espically with the g15 plugin ;).
