I play on onyxia, and its not letting me connect to the game server.

I've rebooted wow, my computer, everything. My gf was able to log on me, so its not my account and the server isnt down...

I last played about 12 hours ago, went to bed, got up, did some stuff..tried to log in.

I cant connect to ALL other realms it seems...except the one i actually play.

Can anyone help? ;_;

Druids should have an "In Heat" debuff while in animal form that ocasionally attracts all mobs of the same species!

Jikate,

We should consider tracing to your realm rather then the logon server for this issue using the netstat command.

  • Start WOW login to the realm you normally play on.
  • Press ALT-TAB to minimize WoW and return to the desktop.
  • Click Start then Run, then type "cmd"
  • In the DOS window type "netstat"
  • Wait until the command prompt appears again, (approx 1 minute)

    You will see an IP address connected on port 3724. It will look like xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:3724 this is your connection to Blizzard.

    Now perform a trace route to that IP address to map the route you take to the realm.
  • Go to Start/Run
  • Type "cmd" to bring up the DOS window in the Run command box.
  • Type "tracert xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx > "C:\trace.txt" in the DOS window
  • Wait for the command prompt to appear again, about 1 minute.

    Now the file called trace.txt should hold the trace route you took to the realm. Can you please post that here?

    It says: Unable to resolve target system name 12-129-224-111.attens.net:3724

    I havent done anything on my comp since i logged off wow last night and booted this morning :x


    Did you type in the tracert as 12-129-224-111? It should've given you a series of numbers with decimals in them. So it should've read something like 12.129.224.111. If you used dashes it would return an error message.

    If you DID use decimals and still getting "Unable to resolve target system name" then that would be something on your internet provider's end possibly blocking the IP address and would have to be addressed by them.

    Can you confirm if you typed it in correctly or not?
