First, everyone should make sure they have tried the troubleshooting steps on this page:
http://kb.leagueoflegends.com/questions/22/Connection+Failure+Errors+on+Login

Enabling TLS and checking the time on your computer's clock is really important.

If you keep getting the errors, the problem most likely has something to do with your internet service provider's DNS servers. You can try using public DNS servers using these instructions:

Alternatively, you can use a program called OpenDNS that does basically the same thing.

This problem tends to be more frequent in countries outside of North America. I'm currently trying to work with one particular ISP in the Netherlands to see exactly what this problem is, and what we can do to fix it. Right now, the ISP in the Netherlands is planning to update some of their DNS servers early next week to try to solve the problem.

Can some of you ping beta.lol.riotgames.com using a command line? The request will probably time out, but I want to see if the URL resolves to the correct IP.

66.151.54.140 is the IP I get from pinging beta.lol.riotgames.com. And yeah, it times out.

I'm still getting the error after enabling TLS 1.0 and manually setting the DNS to the specifications posted in the troubleshooting page.

I was playing last night at around 2:30am CST, but when I tried logging on this morning and this afternoon I got the "connection failure" message. Any other ideas?
