(apologies in advance i have limited grasp on things)
I recently bought a new pc which has a wifi card, i use a router but have always connected PC via lan, now the PC is using both??  I have disabled the wifi now, but it was showing two IP addresses, so if I am portforwarding should I use the lan IP?  I've been having problems connecting to ESO (elder scrolls online) and am trying to work out what is preventing my connection.
thanks

ESO shouldnt need ports opened. sounds like your NAT is not working as it should.


you obviously have no problem using a Ethernet cable, so dont bother with wireless at all.


when you say it is showing two IP addresses, where are you seeing these two IP addresses? in windows itself? or in your router? - if its in your router its likely its simply reserving the ip to that MAC address.

No, it was on the pc in the network and sharing center.  Does IPv6 not having connectivity affect anything?
I was told to try portforwarding amongst other things by the support at ESO to try to get to the bottom of the connection problems i'm having.

that is odd. ESO should not require ports open at all, your connecting to a service, they arent connecting to you.


Likely your connecting to an IPv4 service, so no IPv6 does not matter, Ild say your ISP or hardware does not support IPv6 at the current time.

tell us what kind of problem do you have with ESO? lagging? delay? unable to connect to the server?

connecting to the server.  takes literally hours to load.  Just bought a new computer so it's definitely not the machine
I just used selective startup and it is actually faster, but still takes about 20mins to load, and I can't work out what could be conflicting it, it's not my antivirus and I haven't installed much yet.

hours to load. this sounds like a computer issue.

new computer does not mean good computer for X task. was the computer suitable for the task?

Are you saying your computer takes 20 minutes to boot? Or 20 minutes to load ESO? Either way gnat suggests a major software or hardware issue.

20 minutes to load ESO after running selective startup with everything except windows disabled.  Prior to this the load times were even longer.
 It doesn't seem to be antivirus causing a problem, i have added ESO online folder plus Launcher folder to the exceptions and disabling the antivirus entirely doesn't affect the long loading times.  
Any advise is appreciated, I'm really stuck on this!

Sorry, if the performance is better after selective startup - I can safely say that it is your computer is the issue here.

Resolved now!! Loads in >1minute.  
I'm not sure exactly what did it, I had a play around in the router  - changed NAT to open and added some QOS priority rules.
Thanks for your help =)
