Getting disconnected after using waypoint

  • Almost every single time my barbarian uses a waypoint (or sometimes just entering a new area that has to be loaded), I get disconnected ('the client has been disconnected from the server, etc.). However, if I don't get d/c'ed from the waypoint, I can play succesfully (in whatever area I warped to) with little to no lag, and definitely no disconnects. Another interesting part of this is that using town portal never causes a problem, nor does entering a random dungeon (the ones that only show up randomly and usually have 2 levels). This has become very frustrating because just getting to a location to BEGIN farming can be impossible sometimes, and other times when I manage to get 5 stacks, as soon as I try to go to a new area, NOPE! DISCONNECTED!

    Please help!

    p.s. why can't get my avatar to be the diablo 3 one almost everyone else has instead of a WoW character that I haven't played in over a year??
