There has been a problem with maintaining connection to servers for longer than 5-10 minutes. However, if you use a VPN connection, the connection remains stable and does not time out whatsoever.
When the game released into early access, it worked fine until the first major patch, after which this problem arose. Monday there was a 1gb+ patch that seemingly fixed the issue finally, but I suspect was rolled back due to the unrelated white screen bug. Currently the bug persists.
This is the only online game I've ever experienced this issue with. If it helps, Spectrum is my ISP and my router brand is Netgear.
