internet guru anyone?

Postby kirill » Tue, 09 Oct 2007 1:20 am

Signed for mobile internet from Starhub (was given a small Huawei modem + a sim-card).
Everything is more or less, but!
Can't play games online.
It seems their connection lacks certain protocols. NETBios m.b.?
Not an expert here.
Can somebody help with doing proper settings?
Or this cannot be repaired?

you will never be able to play games online with any mobile internet service ... ( ok maybe you can play chess or similar that doesn;t require upload speed)
These services are too slow to accomodate the data flow needed for true online gaming.

Thanks guys!

No it's not about the speed or controls. I just can't see the list of players. Let's take chess as an example: http://www.bereg.ru/games/club/en.shtml.
When I connect using wireless@sg or such, everything is all right. The board, the players... if I switch to Starhub, I can surf at the same speed, but cannot play. The main window is just blank (smth. to do with protocols, Javascript and all this staff).

I'm also lost.

Using MS Windows ?

if so, right click "My network places on your desktop"
choose properties
right click your wireless network adapter and look at properties
do the same with your wired network adapter

look for any settings the wireless adapter has that the wired adapater doesn't.

clutching at straws here.

also, first thing I always do if I have problems like this is to turn off my Windows firewall and try again - to rule out firewall problems. Unlikely in this case as the game works fine with wireless, but not with wired.
