Saturday night, WoW (World of Warcraft) crashed and from that moment I wasn’t able to connect to the game anymore, it kept saying ‘’Unable to connect’’;;. However, I was able to play on my other computer just fine. I reinstalled the game twice since then but it didn’t change anything. However, I am now stuck on the realm (server) list page. I have tried everything, powercycled my modem and router, deleted , cache and Interface folders, opened my firewalls ports.
At first, I thought I might have a third-party program on my computer not letting me log on, but I plugged this computer to my router and it worked perfectly fine (does plugging it directly to the router mean that it’s not blocking any ports?). At some point, I thought it might have to do with my wireless card (I was getting some frequent disconnects and still getting some so I thought it could be the problem) but it doesn’t seem like it, I’ve successfully logged on some other games such as Crysis (multiplayer mode) and I also updated the drivers.
What could be the problem? Any help is greatly appreciated.
i can see from googling your wifi card that theres some issues with the drivers / problems with weird irq settings / issues with wpa,
have you tried using the drivers windows uses on the initial install? you could try reverting the driver in device manager, is there a driver disk that the machine came with with the original version?
its interesting that other games work perfectly but wow doesnt want to,
i was thinking about going into safe mode and uninstalling the card in there, plus any other ghosts that might appear, the fact that other games work suggests its a problem with the game itself but you've already covered that by deleting the files, cached settings etc,
