Nope and nope. This is my first time trying to use SL ever so I never got on to ghost anywhere. And I'm not using a router at all, just a wireless AP (passes everything through) directly to my modem. No ports are blocked or forwarded if I disable my software firewall, which I have tried.
I am trying to log in for the first time and it stalls at Waiting for Region Handshake then give me the standard Internet trouble/cannot connect to grid error message. I have: - Changed my login location - Turned all graphics and bandwith settings down - Reset my modem - Temporarily disabled my software firewall (no hardware firewall!) - Uninstalled and reinstalled the client. And NONE of this helps! I'm running out of options here so thanks in advance for any assistance.
