Game disconnect in Traveling Circus Camp

In the Circus Camp area on the Flowering Chapel map, I am repeatedly and consistently running into a client disconnection. As soon as I engage either the first quest mob group (the quest from the circus bulletin board), after firing off a few spells my game client always disconnects, and when I reconnect I am dead. If I bypass this mob group, and engage the boss on the path to the Demon Vendor, same thing happens, the game disconnects. This happens every time. This is my first time playing the game, and this is the first time I am in this area.
