QuickBooks Online Desktop App loses connection



recently I've been getting a lot of Connection lost errors using the QBO Desktop app. It works fine for a random time (no more than 15 minutes), but then it shows a screen saying that Something went wrong and I can click Retry. This screen pops up 3 times and then I get a button to Sign Out. I can then sign in after half a minute or so, but it keeps happening. I've tried working on wifi and wired network connection and I already uninstalled the app and downloaded the latest version (QuickBooks 3.5.2). Anybody else with this issue? Any ideas on how to fix this?
