    How do you know you've been IP banned?

    If you get banned, it is by your CDkey.

    well, my cd-key works fine on other realms, and if i change ip -when i play hooked to modem instead of router- i can play as normal, so i figure, since i can play with other ip, im ipbanned^^

    i read at blizz support that if i can connect to other realms, its probably a temp ban.. but for how long? ive been off for 4 days now.

    It varies, but unless when you attempt to log into ANY realm it says : "Your account has been closed. (8)", It is only a temp ban from leaving/joining/scrolling skills too quickly.

    It will not say temporarily, but I don't know exactly what it says because I obviously haven't been perma banned.

    They don't ban you IP if its a perm ban, they ban your CD key.

    Re: ip banned, how long?

    Doesn't work that way.


    For the one who said that he turns off his router for 30 minutes... and then hes back on: Thats because the ban was 30 minutes or less.

    I can change my IP anytime I want, and that has absolutely zero effect on ban lengths.

    Sorry to spoil it.

    Re: ip banned, how long?

    I can play from another ip, when i disconnect router and play from modem i can play, becosue then i get another ip, but i cant get new 1 on router. So yes, it seem to work like that. I'd like to be able to play from router tho, since i share iternet with family, so now i can paly when everyoen else isnt useing internet, wich is pretty much when they sleep..

    did you read what i said? only ip ban has duration more then 3 days, and you just need to change ip to resolve it. but this guy has same prob like me - he cant change ip adress.

    Re: ip banned, how long?

    look - there are two kinds of ban:
    1. ip ban (lasts about 3 weeks and can be resolved by changing ip adress)
    2. cdkey ban (which can be temp ban, but also can be forever)

    Re: ip banned, how long?

    I got answer from blizz, they told me that sum1 from my ip used false Cd-keys, and therefor i ve got temporarly ip-banned, and that the ban can last for few days up until 2 weeks.

    now we play the waiting game^

    Re: ip banned, how long?

    I would kick my brother/sibling/whomever-used-my-ip if they pulled a stunt like that. Imagin your accounts getting tagged and deleted!

    Btw on a side note : If you have a problem with the temp restriction, both the cd key and the ip are tagged. Using a entirely different ip and cd key should work fine without the restriction. Using the same ip and another cd key means a temp res for the other cd key. Using the same cd key and another ip will result in the same result :)P).
