I got it going again by running the launcher repair utility, the link to which I found in this forum under another post.

 

see Launcher Closes Immediately

 

and [GUIDE] Launcher Troubleshooting  especially section "II. Launcher Cannot Patch Itself"

 

Note the download is a new set of files that go into your root game folder and replaces your old ones.

This can be for a number of reasons, remove and re-add antivirus and firewall exceptions first for launcher.exe , swtor.exe and brwc.exe 

 

If you know how to do a ping see if you can ping launchpad.swtor.com , if it responds , then the launcher should also be responding.

 

I just tried from Australia and it is working ok

A ping responds with no problems, but it still brings up an error screen saying the login service is not avilable.

 

Game was logging in fine an hour ago.

 

See attached screen shot.

Give the router/modem and the PC a reboot for good measure, in the game folder is a log folder , can you attach the latest log it may provide a clue to what is occurring

 

If the Ping responds then it would suggest something local is blocking
