error #114

70 Human Mage
Hey Guys,
Just posting as I have just returned to WOW and had an issue when trying to login. I was getting a error #114 upon login.

Apparently there is an issue with DNS server resolution only from Southeast Asia region, which includes Japan, Australia, and New Zealand, and only for some ISP's. I happen to be on the Telstra network.

After some trolling around I found the fix:

I set my DNS to the Google DNSFor IPv4: and I then went to windows command prompt and flushed DNS cache. This is done by typing ipconfig /flushdns. Once the message pops up saying DNS resolver cache has been flushed, close the command prompt and launch the game.

Just thought id post this as there are a lot of different fixes floating around but this is the one that worked for me and I live in Australia.

Had same problem error#114 after installing new hard drive. Tried all options but nothing, placed old drive in & worked. Placed new drive in but error. Then came across the solution ater hours of internet searching. Had to copy & Blizzard entertainment folders from old drive that worked & placed them on new drive & overwrite. Worked like a charm, luckly i had a backup of my warcraft folder to do the copying. May work if you copy those folders from a friends working warcraft but not sure.

I had the same problem, in Japan. First i had battle net error #105. I deleted the cache folder. Then i got battle net error #114. So i changed to google's DNS servers and it was fixed. Hope this info helps.
