online gaming problem!! lost internet connection!! wtf?
ok i was playing my first game online and was just about to attack/harass the other guy when apparently he quit.
there was a quick message saying updating settings then i was told i won without firing a shot.
big deal i thot, the guy was probly a bigger noob than me and was trying not to get a crappier rating by actually fighting and losing. can you get around getting a crappier rating by quitting insteading of fighting and losing?
THE BIG PROBLEM WAS AFTER GETTING OUT OF THE GAME I HAD NO INTERNET CONNECTION LEFT.
I REBOOTED AND STILL NOTHING.
I CHECKED NETWORK CONNECTIONS
and found this extra
internet gateway thing in there.
i tried clicking on it to get /or adjust it properties but it would disaapear after a second or two of that.
then it dissapeared altogether but still no internet no wireless, nothing.
so this time i shutdown and unplugged everything! my tower, dsl tv router, wireless router, modem , everything.
then voila i had internet connection again!
SO HOW DO I AVOID THIS EVERYTIME I PLAY ONLINE?
is there an alternat way to play online other than clicking on multiplayer and letting the game set things up?
