If I post something erroneous please tell me so I can fix it and learn from the error.

I'm currently developing a voxel game called Mosstest in Java as a learning exercise.

I can be contacted by email at obsessivefoss@gmail.com, if one is interested in my work. Please do not email asking for help.

What program is this in? What language is the program set to spellcheck in? What spellings does it suggest?

comment Downgrade Java 1.7 to Java 1.5
One of Oracle's primary goals in moving forward was complete backward-compatibility, so I'd assume that if 1.7 doesn't work but 1.5 does, then there is a deeper problem.

It is working stably now. Bitrate is forced to 18M auto, twpower 17, retry long and retry short are both 31 (as opposed to 21). Thanks!

Long and short retries seem to help greatly, I'll see how stable it is and report back. Can you tell me what the number 21 means? Is it just the number of retries?

How would this be related? I can't send any 802.11 frames, at a lower level than IP addressing.

Windows: Virtually endlessly (as in, hours of un-interrupted communication) vs a few seconds on Ubuntu. Reconnect gives a few more seconds. I'll try the clean disconnect later tomorrow as it is fairly late in my timezone

I've tried values as low as 64 (powers of 2), to no avail.

No, unfortunately the issue remains (the disconnect happens equally quickly). Can't let the bounty go to waste, though, so I'll award it if no other answers come in that work
