Connection Issue

Postby Tarvas » Fri Dec 13, 2013 2:33 am

Something in the patch broke Mechell's computer. It will not connect to EQ. All it does is give the pop up to make sure you are connected to the internet or to check server status. She hasn't changed anything on her computer.

She has no issue connecting to the internet otherwise?

It is usually on EQ side. You still can't connect? Worse comes to worse, do a complete EQ scan. That doesn't work, copy all the .ini files and reinstall the game. Then copy the .ini files back to the program directory.

Did the scan. Guess I'll go with the reinstall. Thanks.

Patch didn't change that much though it did change the game file, you could just delete it and redownload that and see if that helped. I've also not seen a rash of posts which surely would have happened if it was a common bug found in the patch. Sounds like you have the fun of having a uncommon problem :)

Deleting and redownloading didn't work. Geez.

The launcher downloads fine. Every time after I put in my account information and hit play, it says playing. Then the big screen comes up like its about to go to server select screen but then it hits me with an error message that says, Everquest could not connect to the internet, check your connection. Then it gives me a 3 links, one of which says I can look at the Everquest network and when I click on the link the page will not be displayed. I have reinstalled multiple times and I have refreshed my computer to an earlier time and i still get the same problem. Any ideas?

Just her computer. We finally figured it out. It was the firewall. Something changed in the settings. It was a damn pain in the ass..
