Cigar Box connections seem to be working just fine Steve. I just finished a flight only a few minutes ago and many others have been flying this am (lottsa pireps).  Check your connections >> Connection icons in Cigar Box should be Green (Top one is Cigar Box to the site, the bottom icon is Cigar Box to your sim. Both Should be green and bottom ribbon should show Good Connection

Might want to give your router/modem a shutdown/restart to refresh your bandwidth.

No, it hasn't, it has been dropping connection. Jim Magin and I were flying this AM and constant disconnect for both of us. He lives in LA and I in VA, so no connection between the two states.

Now any little bleep/blip type errors that occur can be hidden if you uncheck the errors in Cigar Box: Main > Settings. As long as Cigar Box is recovering comms you don't have to see or be interrupted by any misc glitches. (In Cigar Box simply uncheck View Errors and View FS Errors).
