First of all, calm down. Secondly, it may be your Internet lagging. When I don't have connection problems the game is ok and I don't disconnect, so probably the Lichess servers aren't the problem for your disconnections. If there are a lot of games in progress there may be some congestion in the servers but this is not very common.

Open your own free chess website if you like.

I'll pretend your question is the more constructive, "Where is the Lichess server located?" since chances are, your ISP is slow connecting to the server:

The problem is with your wifi connection. Lichess has fixed the servers, and if you still have a problem message Thibault to get your own personal response from him.
