How to bypass "REALM DOWN"

  • #1
    REALM DOWN PROBLEM?
    NO PROBLEM AT ALL! :D

    As far as i remembered these steps are what my sister told me to do if i ncouter a
    "realm down" experience while playing the game.
    ~Basically this will reset your ban IP address to a new IP address. :)~
    (also work on other online-games if you get realm down etc,.)


    Here it gos:

    step 1:
    Go to "start menu" and find/click "run".
    in the "run" box type: "command" or "cmd".
    in the command window type: "ipconfig/release" then close/exit.

    step 2:
    Go to "start menu" and find/click "Connect to" and click on "show all connection".
    find "local area connection" right-click and click "properties".
    then in "General page" scroll down and find "Internal Protocol (tcp/ip)" double click on it.
    click "use the following IP address".
    on the "IP address" type any number you like example:[12,12,12,12] then press "OK"
    (it should show an "error message" but keep pressing "ok" until there's no more error
    message pop)
    Go back and double-click "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" on the "Local area
    Connection".
    then click "Obtain an IP address automatically" press "OK" then ok/exit.

    step 3:
    Repeat "step 1" but this time in the command window type: "ipconfig/renew" then
    enter/exit...TADA!!!!

    "YOU ARE NOW ABLE TO PLAY DIABLO2LOD AGAIN!!!! :D"

    So can you explain what that all does? Does it reset the IP address?
  • #6
    yes it reset your ban IP address to a new Ip address
  • #7
    I'm guessing (operative word) that this won't "bypass the problem" if the user has a static IP address...
  • #8
    That's similar to along the lines of what I was thinking about it screwing with some systems. Some internet connections would destroy themselves if set to "Obtain an IP address automatically".

    are you talkin bout if there's 2 computers in one household sharing signal on 1 modem or a wireless enternet connection?

    well as of my knowledge the main computer which connected to the modem/router should be the one performing this activity rather than the second computer in your house that gets its wireless signal from the modem/router......lol i might be wrong but i'm pretty sure you'll get an idea of that :)

    And you do realize that it's often impossible? Which means your method doesn't work for many situations.

    You performed this activity on ONE computer. Therefore, you can only guarantee the safety of such an activity on your computer, or a similarly configured.

    I am just saying be careful with telling people to do this if no one is sure what would this cause. Perhaps someone on this forum is good with internet stuff?

    Go to "start menu" and find/click "Connect to" and click on "show all connection".

    You could always do something in the house. Clean, make a sandwich, etc.
