just need to connect

Post by rythom » Thu Sep 16, 2010 1:11 am

Hi I would like to play the game online via wifi but none of my online games including the mana world can find my wifi connection. I have an hp laptop with debian and I connect from many different places. Does anyone know the way to configure and connect?

I dunno about Debian, but in Ubuntu (which is a derivative) I use the Network Manager Applet to configure the networking settings and pick a hotspot.

If you're wireless chip isn't being recognized you may have to use NDISWRAPPER application and Windows wireless drivers to get it to work first.

The internet connects just fine if I'm using firefox but the game returns the message "couldn't connect to remote host."

When you can access the web, ftp, email etc. but games don't work it is very likely that you are behind a firewall which blocks traffic to non-essential ports.

Considering that your problem is not specific to TMW I would suggest you to try a general debian/linux support forum.

  • former TMW Pixel artist
  • NOT a game master

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.
