Was this an install through your host? No. I Have Upload phpbb3 And Then Install It Manually.
MODs you have installed: Prime Quick Replay. Activity Stat Mod, Upcoming Birthday Mod, Show Moderator On Forum, Contact Admin, Top Poster, Simple Point System. Filebase, Arcade Mod, phpBB3 Portal, Last Topic, Ad Managment And Now th23 Domain

If you are getting the logout issue here as well then it must be a problem with your end, something to do with your computers set-up most likely.

Out of interest does your ISP use proxies so your IP changes during an internet session?

That is because phpBB3 is so secure, it is likely that if you connect using different computers they will have different browsers for example and thus the session check "Validate browser:
Enables browser validation for each session improving security.
" would fail and thus kill the session and thus log out. To stop this happening on your own board you would have to disable most the security option in the ACP, although you could do nothing on other phpBB3 boards such as this one.

what is a UAE user?

You are not making much sense? Is this happening just to you on all phpBB board which was the impression you gave in your first post or is this happening on your board to your users?

If I remember correctly people browsing the net from that part of the world are behind proxies which mean in the Admin control panel -> general tab -> server configuration -> security settings

Then the option Session IP validation:
Determines how much of the users IP is used to validate a session; All compares the complete address, A.B.C the first x.x.x, A.B the first x.x, None disables checking. On IPv6 addresses A.B.C compares the first 4 blocks and A.B the first 3 blocks
will probably need setting to none for users.

proxies have nothing to do with illegal or illegal, some parts of the world have ISP which are behind proxy servers, so how about trying what I said :)
