Yes it does! Thanks Nicky! Will that affect the other computer though? I would think so.

I've never even thought of that. How exactly do you do that Salty? I have cable and internet together, and I have a modem on my tower connected to the internet. I also have another computer connected through it so how could I say turn mine off while keeping the other one on? Hopefully that makes sense.

How is the computer you play on connected to the modem? With a cable? Wireless? With a cable, I'd just try unplugging the cord (after letting others know just in case it crashes the network, but it shouldn't or your computer could never shut down without killing everyone else's internet). I've never really played around with turning off internet off of a wired connection (the name for being connected through a cable).

Wireless, you should be able to disconnect from the network. Usually that's down at the bottom and at least on Windows 7 it's a signal strength bar.



I personally never played without the internet. My old desktop probably would have played the games easier with it off, but the wireless adaptor I had was a pain in the rear to get to connect to the network. I had to jump through hoops to get connected to a wireless network.

My new desktop doesn't have an issue playing the game with internet running.

But if you are having lag issues, turning off things like the internet isn't a bad idea. Just remember to occasionally keep it on when you load the launcher if you get your patches through the launcher.

You can also turn off internet by going into your "internet connections", find your connection and right click and disable the internet.  It will only affect your computer and no one elses.  Just remember to go back and enable it again.  That is the way I do mine. :)

Esther, doing that only affects the computer you are using. Your other computer will remain connected to the internet. As long as you don't turn off your modem/wireless router.


Back onto the topic. I patched now I have some serious travel bugs I didn't have before. Am I the only one?

Cable connected from the modem to my computer. I don't think I'm going to do it right now, it may have helped when I was having lagging issues but that was resolved by moving towns.

I haven't traveled since patching, but traveling is (or was?) buggy anyways. I never travel unless it's a game I don't really care about. The notes "said" WA bugs were fixed, but I don't really trust it.

Yeah, I thought it was. I read around and so I traveled with my legacy. Now I have serious glitches with the family.
