Diablo® III

Can't connect to battle.net (Error 3006)

Posts: 5
I've seen this problem posted elsewhere, but no real solutions were given.
I am at school and i can connect and play Starcraft 2, but when i try to connect to diablo 3 it gets stuck connecting to server and does not get past that and Error 3006 comes up. I can play at home with this computer.

Is there something i can do? Is it my school's connection? Is it blizzard's end?
Any info will be great, i don't want to sit here thinking it's possible to play and troubleshooting aimlessly.

What happens when you switch to a different region to play?

This error indicates that the connection timed out, so it may have something to do with the way the school's network is setup.

You may need to check with your school's admin to ensure that all Diablo III ports are open properly.

Thank you for the reply.
Same thing happens when I change region.
I guess I won't be able to play at school.
The real problem is why I can play starcraft 2 online when diablo 3 won't connect?
Different ports I assume.

Anyways thanks!

I have the same problem, I'm on the Americas server. There was a patch earlier that asked me to restart the launcher, but it didnt patch anything. When I logged in, there were 80+ people on the server and yet no public games, 0 players for any quests. So, I decided to go solo, but there was an error that couldnt create a game. I logged out, tried to log in, but this time I had this error.

I couldnt connect to Battle.net. I am playing in my house over the past few weeks and this is the first time that this happened. I tried to change regions, I got through, but of course I have no character there. I tried on the Americas region again, then I couldnt connect to Battle.net.

Hope you have the solution for this, especially that it might be connected to the weird patch. Thanks!
