I understand that every time there is an internet drop, TS tries to reconnect, which is like restarting itself in a sense, and I get Strategy Automation Warning, where i have to confirm existing positions and cancel duplicate orders. Is there a way to automate this reconnection process??? Am i missing smth here, like reconnection options, etc???

Solutions i have been thinking about to tackle the reconnection issue for sim account (I use TS at home for live simulation only with multi strategies for a given instrument. All live trading is done at VPSs and there i have no problems with TS/MC):

1 - move simulated TS to VPS. I do not want to do it due to extra unnecessary hosting costs and lower backtesting capacity at VPS.
2 - better and more costly solution would be to get extra TS and move simulated account to VPS and keep home version for backtesting (which i work along with MC).
3 - get fail over router with either extra internet line or sim - i would be interested to hear from someone who uses such setup at home how stable it is and is it really worth it vs VPS

Thank you.

i talked to TS support and apparently there is no other way to reconnect. Amazing. I have no problems with MC to auto reconnect and TS does not even offer auto reconnect option.

Confirmed - spoke with TS Agent and received the same response. Also the dialog warning is a bit confusing and counter-intuative. I found this video which helped provided some useful information:
