Problem Description: This is a problem I've been having recently, and have had around almost a month ago... it seemed to resolve itself back then, but now it's reappeared and I don't know what to do about it.
When I need to access a game with a logged-in account, it must be done through my BYOND Pager, or at least with it open. But recently, I have either been unable to connect to a game or lose the connection with the game at seemingly random timespans.
At first I thought it was my account, but after creating a dummy account to test this, the problem persisted. I then tried to access a couple of games as a guest (not logged in), and this time it worked flawlessly. I soon realized that there was a problem with the pager itself, but I can't identify it; everything else -- and I do mean EVERYTHING, from the pager's other functionalities to every other online aspect of my computer -- works as perfectly as can be expected, EXCEPT for the game connectivity.
I can't be sure whether this problem has to do with the latest BYOND update, certain hiccups in the BYOND Hub or if my computer or router is hindering it in some way that I can't see. All I know is that this problem started up suddenly, without any warning, and it's driving me batty.
And before I forget: before this, my computer's hardware was no hindrance to BYOND software whatsoever.
Steps to Reproduce Problem: I don't know how it happens exactly, it just disconnects from games at random intervals when using the BYOND Pager (note that using a BYOND account to play games forces the pager to initialize). As a Guest, games work fine.
Please help me fix this ASAP.

EDIT: Just now, I've seen that if I'm a Guest and start up the BYOND Pager afterwards, my connection can still be lost. Perhaps the Pager is trying to do something, but fails, and in doing so crashes my games? Just a theory.
