Hi

Are you on broadband?

As far as i know, if new ip's are generated when logged in than it means you are using dynamic ip address. Its given by your ISP.

Thank you and have a nice day

Yours in service

You are only half correct there dnish. You are correct about when you logon that if the IP address changs then it is Dynamic IP address, but the IP address that he is getting is not from is ISP but from the Router. Now inite unplug the network cable from the Modem that is going to the Router, and plug it straight in to the computer to see if you get internet access quicker. If you do reply back letting me know. Hope that this helps.

I'm not sure I understand exactly what the problem is here. You turn the pc on and you have to unplug the ethernet cable in order to receive an IP address? Are you trying to get a different "Public" IP from your ISP or a different "Local" IP from your router? If you click "Start", "Run", type cmd and click ok. Now type ipconfig /release and hit enter. Next type ipconfig /renew and hit enter. You will release your IP and also obtain a new one.

that doesnt work for me atm... u see, im playing this game diablo 2... whenever i get realm down, i'll have to change ip... otherwise, i'll not be able to log in, as it tracks my ip address... so when i replug the wire that connects to the modem... this is the only way i have found out which i can change my ip... /release and /renew doesnt help =/

and im on a router btw... however i suppose i should only change the ip from the modem and not the router ...

feel free to ask wadever ur unclear of.. thx =)

I don't quite understand also, why do you have to change your IP after you download a realm for Diablo 2. what do you mean by "you can't log in" is that to the game server and they always track your IP?? :tazz:

If you ipconfig \release \renew, you will be receiving a new ip addy from the router and not from your ISP, the router will act as your cp and be a go between your cp and the broadband modem.

so when i replug the wire that connects to the modem... this is the only way i have found out which i can change my ip...


This will cause the broadband modem to loose connection to your ISP, almost complete another POST when the cable is connected again, which is why it is taking so long, it does have to reconfigure itself, speak with DNS, authenticate to the ISP....yadda, yadda, yadda. Just almost the same as unplugging the power cord.

I think we need more info to help you figure this out. Does not make sense that you can download the realm but cannot log in or play because of your IP addy. ;)

ah.. ok

realm down is part of diablo 2, which forbides u to continue playing the game as u created games at a fast rate. realm down prevents users from logining to diablo 2. it normally takes 10 mins , or at times, 10 hours before this "temporary" ban is gone.

realm down = temporary ban

it basically bans the ip that created fast games... and the only way to aviod the wait time is to replug my modem... which i suppose changes my ip address... so im wondering if theres another way which i can do it instead of repluging in, since it takes too long...

Bunp the subject, for what?? Not being able to connect, getting an IP ban, this is what I have found on other games forums and it sounds logical, this makes online gaming more enjoyable to everyone and not having to worry about some of the nasties out there.

Posted by: Military

Alright, Whenever I would play D2 LOD ... I got that message because when i'm transfering .. I like to go through my characters too fast and I would flood the server. If you join / create games waaaay too fast .. B.net thinks that you are flooding it so they kick you for like 15 min .... I would suggest try reconnecting or just waiting for like 30 min or however long it is ... if you keep trying to join b.net you will just have to wait longer ... also don't swtich chars / join / create games so fast .... that's the best information i can give you

Military is correct, this error comes up when you perform some kind of "spammy" behavior, such as trying to transfer too fast. It may also come up if you join/make many games in a row very quickly. It's simply a temporary IP ban.

Also, disable/uninstall any third-party programs you may have installed, such as maphack; they will also cause this error.


I would not worry about this, what is is what is.....There is not much you can do, there is no options for a cable moden, it is set by a config file that the modem asked for when it authenticates its MAC addy to the ISP servers, no way to change this or speed it up. Case Closed.

Just out of curiousity, are you using a DI-604 D-link router, if you are get rid of it because these routers a notorious for flooding out cable modems. I work for a cable company as a service tech and see it everyday.
