Very much appreciated on my part. LAN is very much alive imo, due to the onset of WiFi.

LAN really is an awesome way to play with your friends, I do it all the time with my brother. It's a shame that SC2 won't have it at all. Having to have internet for me to play can be a pain sometimes. And I don't really see how it prevents piracy much at all.

The idea is that tools like Hamachi extend LAN capacity over the internet, allowing people to side-step BNET altogether. That won't stop people altogether, as someone will eventually reverse-engineer the program and create a solution.

Frankly, I find publishers are shooting themselves in the foot over draconian copy protection. It's trivial to find a torrent for pirated games; copy protection in every case gets cracked. The people who have to grin and bear it are the legitimate consumers, who have to cancel LAN events because some idiot decided you needed one unique license per computer to play over LAN. Guess what, your game wont be shown at my LAN event which means that my friends wont get to try it out. It's free advertising you're throwing away, just to inconvenience legitimate consumers and give yourself the illusion you're stopping pirates even as they download your product (sans "protection") before the actual release date.

I used to have similar probelsm when i updated my computer. When i had new hardware etc as i am on a business connection the lan didnt recognise it as a new comp and therefore locked all gameplay on that game. I hope there is a transfer system where you can possibly disable one IP to swap to another?

yuck wifi
wifi i basically useless at a lan because as soon as you get a few people using high bandwidth aps like games the speed of wireless networks goes to the ****. Not a problem if all your doing is surfing but major fail at lan parties.

Lucky mate! I have a maximum of 54mpbs. Seriously, Aussie internet connection sucks. The best stuff you can get is 100 mbps. At least, that's all we could find.

wifi is locale network connection ie ur laptop connecting to ur router and through that to other computers on your network. The n standard is available in all new router around the world include here in aus so dunno if ur referring to net speed or wat. 300mb is the theoretical speed of n but it never really gets that fast and its not the speed i have a problem with its the latency and interference with other devices running on similar frequency's

Can by the extended boxes which give better frequency free from disturbances. But they are abit more money.
