05:57.21livingdeathI just bought Wow battle chest today and have been struggling all day to get to play friend has loaded it on his computer and it works fine
05:58.16livingdeathi can't connect to the server
05:58.33livingdeathive tried unplugging my cable modem and plugging it back in after 60 seconds
05:58.41livingdeathive tried disabling all firewalls and still no avail
05:58.49livingdeathmy friend installed it on his computer and it works fine
05:59.11livingdeathwhen i plug my computer directly into the modem it will not assign an ip address no matter what computer I use
05:59.19livingdeathi called tech support

06:26.39TrelQuestion I'm a prot pally and I just dual specced, which would be the best other to go with holy or ret?
06:28.17Nechcknwell, do you want to heal or dps
06:28.33NechcknI'd think that healing would likely get you a few more runs, if that is what you are after
06:29.15livingdeathCould someone please help me?
06:30.08Nechcknlivingdeath  um... with the patches, sure
06:31.28Nechcknlivingdeath  see for alternate locations
06:32.11NechcknThose sites are all about the most trusted you can find, so no real worry of virus/trojan action- you should still have antivirus active on your local machine, but that is about it.
06:32.36livingdeathwhat im saying is
06:32.47livingdeathi let my buddy install it and it worked fine
06:32.52livingdeathit automatically updated his version
06:33.00livingdeathand he was able to logo on create a character
06:33.14livingdeathi talked with blizzard tech support and he mentioned nothing about a updated patch
06:33.23livingdeathi need a patch that with update from the default
06:33.43Nechcknyou need quite a few if you are going from what is in the box
06:33.52Trelhmmm, I'm still unsure >.<

06:34.15NechcknTrel  it's a tough decision, really.  Are you in a guild?
06:34.32livingdeathNo one cares though.
06:34.39livingdeathI just
06:34.46livingdeathjust sayin' thought someone could help
06:34.48Nechcknlivingdeath  you need to patch the installation
06:34.56livingdeathhow could i patch it from the default
06:35.38NechcknOkay... so, did you install all of the disks on your local machine?
06:35.45livingdeathHow do I know which patch to get
06:35.52livingdeaththere was just one disc
06:35.59livingdeathitw as the battle chest
06:36.04livingdeathcame with burning crusade
06:36.09livingdeathworked on every machine but mine
06:36.11NechcknOkay... then the dvd, I suppose.. which is fine.
06:36.13livingdeathi disabled all the firewlals
06:36.20NechcknDo you have a Blizzard account?
06:36.22livingdeathi disabled everything like the blizzard tech support guy said
06:36.44NechcknAre you on ms windows?
06:36.57livingdeathwindows vista home  64 bit
06:37.15Nechcknokay.. 1 moment

06:38.14livingdeathim wondering what I could do could someone please help?
06:38.19livingdeathdeep in my heart
06:38.24livingdeathits h
06:38.28livingdeathi want to play
06:38.36Trellivingdeath I came in too late, what problem are you having?
06:39.09Nechckndid you run the tool
06:39.51NechcknIf not, do that now.  the repair utility, that is
06:40.05*** join/#wowwiki BiggieSmalls (
06:40.20Nechcknselect the option to automatically detect and repair
06:40.30livingdeathWhen I try to launch WoW I get the error message "Cannot connect to the news server. Please check the network and try again later." And I also can't connect to the server.
06:40.58livingdeathI talked with soemoeone from blizzard and they couldn't resolve the issue
06:41.10livingdeathit seems to me the ver. is out of date
06:41.15livingdeathit works fine on my friends comp
06:41.35livingdeathany help is appreciated
06:41.41Nechcknthe repair utility will check about all of that sort of thing
06:41.57livingdeathyea yea
06:42.01livingdeathill check it out
06:42.02Nechcknespecially if it's an initial install, something could have gone amiss
06:42.17livingdeathnah cause i installed it several times
06:42.25livingdeathand it takes like an hour to install
06:42.33livingdeatheach time
06:42.46livingdeathits battle chest
06:43.39livingdeathoh god
06:44.02NechcknThe repair utility will check all the files needed to run the game, if you have a decently-new machine, it should take about 20 minutes at the most.
06:44.31TrelWhat if any security software do you have installed?
06:45.04livingdeaththanks man you've helped me mroe than anyone
06:45.26livingdeathi had avira antivir but the dude from blizzard tech support demanded uninstall it because of the firewalls
06:45.36livingdeathand also told me to disable to
06:45.43livingdeathall the programs runnig
06:46.10livingdeathok it says "Cannot connect to the server to download repair information. Please try again later."
06:47.01livingdeathOH MAN
06:47.09livingdeathcould somoen eplease help for god sakeS
06:47.56livingdeathI CANT GET THE REPAIR UTILITY
06:48.24TrelI'm looking, calm down.
06:48.32livingdeathThank You.
06:48.34Nechcknokay, so it would seem that you have some sort of firewall blocking access, if even that won't connect
06:48.50TrelYou said avira, was it the free one?
06:49.04livingdeathThat's what I had thought but windows says there is no firewall running and i've disabled all the programs and tried to run it but still no avail
06:49.15livingdeathNo, it was the premium version.
06:49.25Nechcknand what of your router?
06:49.30TrelOk, so it DID have a firewall included.
06:49.40livingdeathI uninstalled it
06:49.49livingdeathok so I bypassed the router
06:50.00livingdeathwent directly to the the modem and wasnt able to connect
06:50.13livingdeaththe dude from blizzard said it should automatically assign me an ip address
06:50.17livingdeathand to contact comcast
06:50.41livingdeathit doesnt make sense though
06:50.55NechcknWell, you can have firewalls in each location
06:51.02livingdeathi should be ablet o connect wirelessly if two other computers have using the same software
06:51.06Nechcknon your machine, on a router, and withint the cable router
06:51.14livingdeathno, all the firewalls are disabled though
06:51.32TrelOk, this is a major longshot, do you know where to change your DNS servers in Windows?
06:51.47livingdeathin the command prompt?
06:51.55livingdeathI tried to flusht eh dns earlier
06:52.00livingdeathit said something about elevated
06:52.05livingdeathand the ip
06:52.24livingdeathwhat do you mean change the DNS servers?
06:52.25Trelno, I mean change the actual settings it's where you can set a static IP (not sure where it is in Vista)
06:52.44livingdeathI don't know.
06:52.53Trellemme google hold on
06:53.16Trel <--- follow that guide
06:53.19livingdeathI don't see why that would matter if my friend connect using the same IP address through my wireless cable
06:53.24livingdeathand it worked
06:53.30Trelbut where you actually put in the numbers use
06:53.35Trel4.2.2.1 and
06:53.53Trelfor preferred and alternate
06:53.54Nechcknit depends, are you using DHCP for it?  and you both are running the same OS?
06:54.25NechcknTrel seems to be onto the best route- setting it manually, so that you can connect.
06:54.44livingdeathok but if it worked for my firend
06:54.51livingdeathon the same ip address im using
06:54.56livingdeaththen why would the dns
06:55.03Trelhe may have had different DNS servers manually selected
06:55.20Nechcknor vice versa
06:56.55livingdeathYou may hbe onto something.
06:58.15NechcknI must be off; best of luck with it, livingdeath
06:59.12livingdeathfor the ip
06:59.28*** join/#wowwiki cyndis (
07:01.18Trelfor the IP you can leave it on whatever was working for normal internet usage
07:01.26Trelit's just the DNS settings that we're looking at
07:01.38livingdeathtype in for the preferred dns ?
07:03.03Treland for the alternate
07:06.07TrelRandom question, if you have 2 machiens, can you log two chars from same account?
