    Can't connect to B.net from Netbook!

    Hi!

    So, I can connect fine to Battle.Net when I'm on my desktop but not on my netbook. When I click to connect, it says it's searching for the fastest server but just hangs there. I'm obviously connecting to my wireless router since it's a netbook, it's also on Windows 7. Any idea what's wrong?

    something is blocking ports 4000 or 6112

    try disabling windows firewall
    and make sure your connected to your wireless network

    Like ffejrxx said, sounds very like a firewall issue to me.
    Research unblocking ports for your firewall rather than disabling it while gaming.

    you can test 6112 using the telnet trick

    vista and 7 dont have telnet installed by default

    Open control panel.
    Then go into programs.
    Then in programs and features
    Click ‘turn windows features on or off ‘
    on the list that appears check the box beside: Telnet Client.
    Then click ok.

    start -> run (search vista/7) -> cmd [enter]
    telnet uswest.battle.net 6112 [enter]
    c [case sensitive must be lower]

    it will give your internet ip if port 6112 is open

    ex.
    Code:
     This is a Battle.net server
    
    Your IP address is [xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx] (this will be your internet ip)
    
    
    Connection to host lost.

    My I.P is showing. Any other ideas?

    Also, it now goes up to "Checking Versions" then I get a message about not being able to verify the version. I also tried to turn off firewall but it still wouldn't let me connect.
