I’ve been playing Diablo 2 on my current ISP for years, now today all of the sudden I’m not able to connect. I was playing two days ago at home without problems.
“Checking versions…”, “You were disconnected from Battle.net. Please reconnect.”
I noticed the problem today at work on the lunch break, figured I’d do a few MF runs now that US-East Ladder doesn’t have a 15+ minute queue. Tried all realms, even open battle.net, same thing. After I got home, I tried my home connection, same problem. Both used to work just fine, now both aren’t working. Both the home and work connections are through the same ISP. I know for a fact that the cause is not VPN or proxy use in either location. I’ve been playing on lunch breaks at work for the past few years, even though it’s technically a business class internet connection. Even if VPN/business class internet from work was the cause, it should not affect the home connection, unless of course my CD keys were also restricted.
The only other thing that I use in both locations is Sven’s Glide Wrapper, which I’ve also been using for years.
I just fired up my laptop which has a different CD key set and tried to connect from my home ISP, same problem. Also using Sven’s Glide Wrapper on the laptop.
Only two things I can think of:
1: Both my work and home connection have suddenly been flagged as a business ISP.
2: Using Sven’s Glide Wrapper is now a restrictable offense.
What is going on?
