    Switching Chars / Games / Accnts too fast

    Hope this is in the right area of the forum...

    Anyways, a lot of you probably already know this but,
    whenever bnet "security" locks you out for switching characters,
    games, or accounts too fast >>>> you can just disconnect your internet and reconnect and you should be able to get back into any account immediately.

    A few times it will fail, but if you disconnect again and reconnect a second time it will then work. It has for me.

    Hope this helps the people that don't already know this.

    AFAIK, this only applies to those with a dynamic IP, if you are stuck with a static one, I don't believe it will work.

    Does anyone have approximate x seconds it would be safe to stay in a game before switching character again?

    Happened to me a lot too.

    I now wait up to 5 secs before switching chars/accts or entering/leaving games and the problem has almost disappeared.
