Lag is a noticeable delay between the time something is initiated and the time when it happens. For example, pressing an "attack" button and finding that the attack doesn't happen until a second later. Latency is sometimes used to mean the same thing as lag, but in networking it's generally used interchangeably with ping time: the amount of time it takes ...

Pretend we have a sheet of paper with lots of holes. Those holes are ports. Minecraft wants to use Port Number 25565. You allow it. So you stick a pin through that hole. When you shut a server down properly, it tells the hole to disconnect Minecraft's pin from the ports. When you don't, the server is no longer online, but the pin's still connected. (For ...

A currently running process is listening on port 25565 and will not give it up to the new instance of your server. In your situation, it's likely the process that's "clogging" the port is (part of) a previous instance of your server that wasn't shut down properly. In Windows XP, run the command prompt with Win+R>cmd. Then run the command netstat -ano to ...

It seems that Magicka: Wizards War uses random ports from my own testing. I tested it several times, and the result showed that it listened on port 15303, 15582, 16167, 17393, 17521 respectively in the tests. It also used port 54254, 64594, 56102, 55128, 58629 for UDP respectively in the tests. Therefore I suspect that this game will listen on a range ...

You posted seven hours ago, so the immediate problem may have been resolved by the reboot suggested in another answer. However, as a more fine-tuned solution, you might find this answer valuable: How to close TCP and UDP ports via windows command line. Rebooting the entire machine will end all processes, freeing all ports used by those processes, and that ...

I would suggest using Evolve or Tunngle instead of Hamachi. I use Tunngle to host and play with my friend. These are more reliable ways of setting up virtual LANs. Just get in one room with person you want to play!

Does the WiiU Setup panel complain that it can't connect? Or does it seem to consider itself connected yet programs will complain that they can't access other sites? That is, the WiiU's Setup page shows a connection between WiiU and 'network device', but then fails between 'network device' and 'internet'? If the former, I have no ideas. But if the ...

If the game is crashing the network, it is possible that the drivers are out of date OR the software used in the game is conflicting with his native drivers and causing a crash. My PC crashes a certain program whenever I plug my headphones in, as an example. Things to try would include: Updating drivers for the networking device = check the manufacturers ...

It's an unfortunate side effect of certain games...I think Uncharted Vita used to do it or something. As far as I can tell, it's simply the game disabling network features for...some reason, and there's nothing you can do to keep it from happening. I thought this was a bug or something that was fixed since I haven't seen it in months, but I guess devs can ...

1) I am not exactly sure what the question is asking. It seems to vague, what are you trying to accomplish 2) As far as I can tell, no you cannot directly go to Minecraft without accepting the login screen. This is to make sure other people on your computer can't use Minecraft without your permission. You can save the log on details to make this faster 3) ...

The pokemon X/Y game had several updates, what you need to do is go to the Eshop and download the updates. Nintendo 3DS games don't updates their games on its own unlike other consoles and PC and that is probably the cause of your connection error. I had the exact problem with the first update.
