    Desperate! Can not log in to FFXI

    Got dc'd thursday and havent been able to get back on since.
    Ok I have
    Acer
    Aspire X1420G
    Proc: Amd Athlon II x4 645 processor 3.10 GHz
    64 bit operating system
    Windows Home Premium
    service pack 1

    I get the POL: 1160 Error, which is the cable, hardwear etc error.
    Ok so I checked all that out. No problem and I can get on the internet everywhere else EXCEPT most SE sites. I can get on them occasionally but not long enough to post, for instance in the FFXI Forum tech support forum. Also not able to access Support through Playoneline.com although able to pull that site up. Occasionally I can pull up the management site. Long enough to have input the keys for Abyssea on a second account. And to input the key for the Destrier hat which I did before I realized the extent of my problem.
    I have talked to my tech support at my IPS and they have run me through the rebooting etc processes to no avail.
    I have gone through all my potential blocking features that I can think of and made them all very low protection. At one point I even disabled my virus checker, AVG to try to connect the game. (its back up so no poking around!)
    I tried, also to bring the game up on my husband's computer. No luck. At all. Same thing.
    Ok I have run out of ideas. Anyone have one? or two? Please? I need help for my addiction!

    This sounds like the time that Cox blocked FFXI

    Did you retry POL since you posted on the FFXI forum?

    That error is usually there when you can't access anything SE related, forums, Account management etc.

    If you are able to access the forum now maybe you can log in game

    Could this be a Cloud issue with all the problems Amazon has had in the east with their data centers? I know ffxi forum has Cloud, although I admit I dont really know what that means. I did see an interview with a SE tech guy who was just plain effusive over Cloud tech.

    If you tried on all accounts under the same connection, try via elsewhere:

    1. Friend's house
    2. Leech a wireless connection somehow
    3. Your mobile phone, does it allow internet access/turn into an access point? Try via that
    4. Get down to starbucks, buy a drink, ask for wireless code, try there

    Assuming you're on a laptop.

    Safelink in Rupert Idaho. Not the cell phone company. This is a small local company. I do not know who they use.

    I'd place the blame squarely on them. See if you can go to someone else's house with a different ISP and log on there.

    My son in law was able to start both of my accounts with no problem on his computer. Different ISP.

    Could be the same problem that Virgin had a while ago where it was fine going through a VPN, should give it a try.

    hmm on post 2 he was telling me Cox blocked ffxi. Have no idea what that means which is why I asked for more info. Anyway. My internet says they are getting my signal just fine. For some reason he still thinks it has something to do with my end of things of course. I am looking at the vpn idea.
