So I’m trying to play Diablo 2 with a friend on battlenet, with a legit CD Key that I purchases directly from the Blizz website. Every time I try to connect I get stuck at Connecting to Fastest server for about 30 seconds, then I get the error message "Unable to connect to battlenet If using a modem try contacting your ISP - basically telling me to connect to the internet… which I am.
I’ve been relentlessly researching this issue and I’ve tried everything, posting here is my last desperate attempt.
Here is a list of the things I’ve tried:
-Forwarding my ports on my router
-Updating my router firmware
-reinstalling the game 3 different times to different directories
-Disabling windows defender
-Connecting to my phone’s mobile hotspot
-Connecting to my router’s Guest network
-Using an ethernet cable directly to the modem
-Run in adminstrator mode
-Run in windows compatibility mode for Windows SP 2 & 3
-Using command prompt Flush my DNS and iprelease/iprenew
Not sure what to do next… never in my life have I ever been unable to get a game work because of a network issue… I am fresh out of ideas… please help!
