"secondlife cannot be accessed from this computer"

Question

  • 0

Has she changing IP adresses?

Because this message is not caused by logging in from a specific computer, but from an IP adress. Many people don't have a static IP adress and when you get this message, it means your computer is currently connected from an adress that has been banned sometimes in the past.

I had this once and it usually solveable by turning off your router, waiting for some time and then turning it on again. This should give you a new adress.

Try switching off your router for ten minutes, and then powering it back up. You will lose Internet connection during this time.

IP address has nothing to do with your specific computer - it relates to your network connection. Second Life used to like banning people by IP address, and this still affects some unassociated users who use dynamic IP addresses.

Restarting your router should provide you with a new IP address, if yours happens to be dynamic.

"Old computer"... Is it too old to run SL? You can download SL on ANY computer, but you can only run it if the hardware and OS are a minimum level.

Nah, SL doesn't give this error message if your computer is too old or out of date.

Check out the other Answers to this question - they all say the same thing. :)

I have that problem occasionally when hooked up to certain wifi.   for example, i can access second life from work, but not from home. same exact computer, different wifi, and different IP as a result.
