For the past few days from about 11:45pm to 12:15am I get kicked from the game I'm playing (Everquest 2) and I can't re-connect until 20m or more. By then the group or raid has went on without me.
Resetting the game, computer or router does not help.
Access to other websites works fine during this time.
After seeing this issue with another game a few months ago (Eve Online) I checked the routing to the servers (daybreakgames.com) and found that the routing actually changes at least on a daily basis and looks different when the game is broken compared to when it's working.
I'll keep updating this post with tracerts that work and don't work below
Hop 7 seems to be the key difference from when it is and isn't working since I've been monitoring the routing
