    Quick question

    I'm sure this has been asked many times, but I can't seem to find it via the search feature...

    I'm wondering how long you are banned from logging on once you get the "temporarily restricted from the realms" message.

    Basically, I was working on my new summoner in a normal mode game a little while ago when the SOJs sold to vendors counter was displayed (server #35, btw - count was 7,359 last I saw it). I left my 2nd account parked in the game to watch for messages, and started creating hell mode games with my pally to see if I could get lucky and create a hell mode game on server #35. I never did get on #35 again, and made too many games too quickly, obtaining a ban for my efforts.

    The D Clone guide says it's a 10 minute ban if you create too many games too fast, but it's been about 1/2 hour and I still can't get back in. Please let me kow how long this temporary ban lasts.

    The ban can last anywhere from a few minutes to several hours.

    If you keep attempting to log back in, it'll extend the tempban.

    If you're connecting through dynamic dsl or a 56k, you can simply renew your connection and get a new ip.

    Ah well, guess it's time to make some dinner then. Hopefully BNET will forgive me soon so I can get back to working on my little summoner.

    Thanks for the prompt response...much appreciated.

    If its a 56k, just disconnect and reconnect.

    for dynamic Dsl, disc/reconnect to isp as well - There's usually software that comes with your internet, for a connection manager sorta program. Or if you have a router, just reconnect using that. If your ip isnt static / linked to your specific user account with the isp, you'll just be reassigned a random one from the available pool that they have.

    there's also the dos shell method, iprelease or iprenew or something. I dont know how that one functions.
