Router Connected To Play Wow ?


Why do i have to be router-connected to play wow? At low levels, i was able to play wow on my laptop ( dell inspiron) in my room, without being connected to the router. Now, i can only browse web pages and get as far as the opening screen and enter my info, the insta-disconnect! Is it my internet connection, computer, or what?

Xbox Live Connection Have 4 Bars But When Play Wow I Have 3 Bars

When i play wow i have 1 to 3 bars, but when i test xbox live connection i have 4 bars? The connection bar in game refers to the strength of your connection to the host. If you have a poor connection to other players, try finding a session with a better host.

Can Xbox 360 Connected To Router Interfere With Other Router Connection

Can an xbox360 connected to a router interfere with another person's router connection? The netgear router is in my room and my xbox360 is connected to it with a wired ethernet connection. My father is convinced that the xbox360 is the reason that he frequently doesn't have a connection, or it's very slow, and has to unplug the router for 60 seconds. I don't think that makes sense, especially since he'll have problems when i haven't even used the system all day. Also, his connection has gotten worse since he traded in our linksys router for this netgear. Can my xbox360 be interfering with his router connection, or is it the router?

Laptop Router Not Connected

I just added a wep key to my router, because someone near me was constantly leeching it. Everyone else was able to connect to the newly secured network fine (on ipod touches, and laptops running vista and 7). When i tried to connect to the network on my laptop, it says that it connected, but next to the wireless name, it says in big bold letters "not connected", but the option in the bottom right of the window only allows for disconnecting, because it thinks that it is connected. The other strange thing, is that under network connections, the wireless connection icon also says not connected. If i right click on the icon, the "status" option is greyed out, so i can't click it. And finally, if i try to "repair" the connection, it disables/enables it fine, but says that it was unable to connect to the wireless network, and that the repair failed. I have a feeling that the problem has to do with a service, because my laptop has a tendency to shut off random services, but i have no idea where to start my search of the faulty service. I'm running on windows xp home edition sp3
My wireless adapter is a atheros ar5007eg

Packet Loss When Connected To Router

Okay when i didn't have my router set up and ping tested myself my packet loss was 0%. But once i connected my router, the packet loss went to 88%! I'm sure this is not a coincidence because i removed my router before and it dropped to zero and when i connect my router and set it up, the packet loss goes up to 88% again! How do i fix it? I have a belkin g wireless router model f5d7234-4 v3.

Connected To Router, But Internet Wont Load

I am connected to my router, but the internet wont load. Answer:- turn the router and modem off for a minute, restart the router and modem, restart your computer. This should work. If not, make sure that your wi-fi wasn't accidentally turned off. To turn wi-fi on/off, push "fn" and the wi-fi button(f11 depending on your computer)

Netgear Router Connected With Limited Access

Laptop will not connect to wireless router but computer and phone are connected. I am using vista on my laptop and the wireless internet icon at the bottom right is showing that its not connected. However when i click on it to 'connect or disconnect' it says that i am connected to my netgear router with limited access. This is only happening to my laptop and it isn't anything to do with my internet provider as the wireless is connected to the main family computer and also my blackberry phone. Im thinking that some settings might have been changed on my laptop and this is why it is not working?

I have tried restarting my laptop, disconnecting and connecting again, removing the network connection and then starting from scratch adding it and entering in the pass code. Am i going to have to reboot my whole laptop and wipe everything and start from the very beginning?

Can Pc Connected To Wireless Network Router Via Ethernet Will Work ?

Can a desktop be part of a wireless home network if it is connected to a router via ethernet?

Answer:- not only can it, but it's a good idea. Letting wireless computers get to the router's administration pages is just asking to have the network hijacked out from under you by an unscrupulous neighbor. Wireless administration should be turned off, and only cabled computers allowed to get to the admin pages.

Video Card To Play Play Left 4 Dead

Hello there, i was wondering what is the best video card? Because i asked a question a while ago on how to play left 4 dead on a net-book. But the gay there said i need a powerful pc to play it. Ok. I have a video card problem. Because. I think it is weak because it cant even enable the 3d acceleration in plants vs zombies! I was wondering if it has something to do with my video card? Or something wasn't installed like direct-x? And i searched here how to know video card brand. But i followed all instructions and i didn't see one! Or maybe i didn't just notice it? I think it's intel because everything i see is intel. So here is what i wanted in my question:

What is the problem of my video card?

What is the best video card brand?

Can someone tell me all the video card products of intel? And which is the best of it?

Get Choppy Play Back When Play Dvd

I have a mini-itx based small form factor machine that i'd like to make into a multimedia box. The motherboard is ~1ghz with 1gb of ram. The machine can handle audio, and video files without a problem. Whenever i try to play hulu or dvds however i get choppy playback. (Youtube, even on hd, is fine however). If i get a decent pci video card (only 1 pci slot on the board), would that clear up the chop when i'm trying to play?

New Computer For Wow

I want to play wow with med-high settings (at least having everything off except full view distance. ) With playable fps during raids. To be honest, i'll be happy with playable at minimum. This computer has trouble starting it without getting the bsod, and i can't even raid or go to dalaran due to having to spend literally 85% of my time waiting for it to unfreeze. I have a combo that i'm considering:

http://www.Newegg.com/product/combodealdetails.aspx?Itemlist=combo. 258870

The case from my old computer is micro-atx, which is the form factor for the motherboard in that combo, so i would assume i can use it. 1) what will you be doing with this pc? Gaming? Photoshop? Web browsing? Etc
World of warcraft, surfing the internet

2) what's your budget? Are tax and shipping included?
I'm thinking $400, but i could change that. Yes

3) where do you live?
Ohio

4) what exact parts do you need for that budget? Cpu, ram, case, etc. Please be very specific. Everything inside the case. Psu, motherboard, cpu, ram, video card, hdd, optical drive(optical drive isn't necessary, but my current one is glitchy; it won't stay open)

5) if reusing any parts, what parts will you be reusing? Please be especially specific about the power supply. List make and model. None, unless my 200w psu can support the new system

6) will you be overclocking?
Minimally, if at all

7) what size monitor do you have and/or plan to have?
17" with max res of 1280x1024

8) when do you plan on building/buying the pc?
Within a week or two

9) what features do you need in a motherboard? Raid? Firewire? Crossfire or sli support? Etc. Nothing special. Just ethernet and onboard audio

10) do you already have a legit and reusable/transferable os key/license?
I have the windows 7 rc on a disk, and i'm getting the licensed copy when it comes out. ($30 for premium due to having a college e-mail )

Low Wow Framerates

I just recently upgraded my processor and gpu and seems world of warcraft chugs along when it should wizz. I'm noticing severe drops in performance in some areas, and sub 30 fps in raids. Is anyone else having similar problems? I know wow doesn't "support" win7 or fully utilize the 4890 but it seems i should be getting >60fps gameplay or maybe i'm just wishful thinking. I have all in-game settings set to high along with the in-game 8x multi-sampling rate (which doesn't change my fps lowering it). I lowered shadows bar and seems i got about 10-15 fps but still getting low in just regular instances. I would oc the cpu but it seems i have an earlier version of the p5w and cannot change the vcore lower than 1. 4 (when i do set it at 1. 4, temps skyrocket). Running 38c idle and about 50-51c load. Specs below:

C2duo e8400 @ stock (3. 0) w/ zalman cnps9500
Asus p5w dh mobo
His radeon hd4890 1gb (stock) 1680x1080 resolution
4 gb (2x 2gb) g. Skill 800mhz ram 4-4-4-12
Kingwin 600ma1 600w psu
Windows 7 rc1 64bit

Dvd Drive Issues / Wow

I first noticed something when i tried to install wow: the burning crusade. I had always a problem with the 4th cd at the exact same place at maybe 80%. The cd was brand new, but i went to check. It wasn't scratched, but it did have a tiny dent on the plastic (shouldn't have damaged the data though). Then i tried installing fallout 1. This cd was scratched though. I had to use win95 compatibility, but it worked fine, until about 35% into the installation. Once again, a file wouldn't copy. I didn't think too much, because the cd was scratched (though i have a cd that is worse and it used to work). Now i tried to reinstall dark messiah of might and magic. It worked fine till maybe 85% into the installation. Again some file wouldn't install. Took the cd out and noticed some fingerprint smudges, but no scratches, considering some other cds i had used it should still have worked. After some cleaning the installation went without any problem. I never had this happen before and it all happened this week. Is this just a problem with the cds, or is my dvd drive being too sensible? Meh, if its the discs, i guess ill have to change the first one at the store, despair with the second one and happily play the third one, maybe with a "no cd" crack if i happen to have some problem later on.

Mouse Lag In Warcraft 3 / Wow

Since a few days i got problems with a wierd mouse delay in wow / warcraft 3, i still play the mod dota alot. I googled a little, i found some forums where others noticed the same problem. By following some steps by disabling smooth mouse and enabling hardware cursor in wow advanced options i managed to remove my mouse lag in wow, but it is still present in warcraft 3. I got the problem ever since i got my new nvidia 6200 graphic card. Other topics with people with the same problem:

http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?Showtopic=8318&st=20
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?T=340193&page=3

Found several other links with people describing the same problem, not knowing what caused it. As a gamer everyone knows playing with a mouse delay really makes it terrible. Specific details about the mouse delay:

- As soon as the game starts, my mouse acceleration starts to change, which is often the case when you start a game. -But, there is a delay, like if there would be a setting > delay the movement of your mouse by a xx amount of time. -I use a good logitech mouse, and for over 6 years i use mousefix, that removes your "auto" mouse acceleration in windows, since a few months that function is also build in the logitech drivers.

Comfortable Keyboard / Mouse Set Up For Wow

I am just getting back into wow, and i really need to find a better more comfortable set up to play. I am actually considering getting a laptop because just sitting at a desk even for an hour or so is killing me. Anybody have any unique ways they are set up to play the game so you can actually relax while playing?

I was also thinking about just getting a wireless kb/mouse set up and playing from a comfy chair. But i don't think that would work.

What Notebook Video Card Runs Wow @ 1900x1200 - 60 ?

Right now i have a macbook pro 2. 4ghz c2d and geforce 8600m gt 512mb running windows xp. Wow runs @ 1440x900 medium settings at very playable settings. Over 60fsp easy while questing, but in the 30s-40s raiding. To me, anything less than 60 is unacceptable. I am probably going to get another mbp 17" when they refresh them, however i was just wondering what notebook gpu would be needed to run wow @ 1900x1200 60fps always. Settings can vary, i just want to run @ native res of 1900x1200. Current mbp hooked up to tv @ 1080p does not run smoothly at all.

Wow, Supreme Commander, And Cs Games Freeze Computer

For some reason i don't quite know, my computer will freeze up while playing video games. Currently, i only play wow, supreme commander, and cs and it freezes on all of these games. Sometimes after a freeze it will do the whole serious error bluescreen and restart, but sometimes it just stays there till i manually restart. Once it restarts however, it usually will continue to do this all day to the effect i can play maybe 5 min of a game before it will freeze. Also, sometimes my graphics streak across my screen to infinity. Im guessing my graphics card is to blame here?

Any ideas on whats going on and how i can fix this?

Adsl Modem / Router With Wireless Netgear Router

I have a problem and do not know where else to go. I currently have an adsl+2 modem/router and recently bought a netgear wireless rangemax 240 router for wireless capabilities.

Hardware To Play Cs:s

I recently upgraded to a 30" lcd with a resolution of 2560x1600. I used to play cs:s with a 1920x1200 monitor, and it was smooth. However, ever since i upgraded, the game is way too laggy to play. I figure its either cpu or video card. Can anyone advice on which cpu or video card i should get in order to play cs:s with a 2560x1600 monitor? I can even upgrade the whole unit if i have to. My pc is as followed:

Intel pee 840 3. 2ghz
Winfast nvidia 8800gt 512mb
