175Mb/s with stable fibre, 2900+rtx3080ti+32GB, there was a major server outage a number of months ago, prior to that I never had the issue. I now get intermittent disconnects, I think it’s MS server issue
just in case you not know “why” this entries was in your host file:
you had google-maps-replacement installed… The forum is full with cases where users run into same issue because of these mod. Then often they simple remove the mod, or also reinstalling the whole MSFS application, but with no effect.
I didn’t have this problem at all with previous versions of this mod with the two lines left in the host file. Not sure which version it started with. But at least we know what to do to rectify the disconnect problem.
I like using the mod sometimes because it corrects areas that are too green, green roads and some other interesting things are displayed when using it.
The later versions of the GM mod have a “stop mod” button. Make sure you use that button when closing out the mod instead of just using the X button in upper right corner. That fixed the connection issue for me. I was trying to run MSFS in a vanilla, mod free setup to check some stuff when my connection message issue started. Took me 3 days to figure it out before I came across this thread which prompted me to check the map mod. I did NOT go into any file folder to delete any lines. Problem solved at least for now. Thanks for the help guys.
