AlterIW iw_22.iwd file is incorrect – Fix it

[ad#square]
Just a few unlucky guys  (like me)  get this error when trying to start Call Of Duty Modern Warfare II with AlterIW net.

“The main/iw_22.iwd file is incorrect

The problem with this error is that it does not give you any actual hint on how to solve this problem. The file is correct, try reinstalling from scratch but you will only be wasting your time.

Actually the problem is a networking one!!! no not a file mismatch or corruption. Just go here and follow the method the same that I used to play Resident Evil 5 on LAN

I quote this from that page :

On Vista, open the “Network and sharing center”

From the left pane select “manage network connections”

press the “ALT key” on your keyboard. the top menus will appear

Select “advanced settings” from the menu “advanced”

Use the arrows to move your LAN card up in the list then save everything.

Thats That my friend, Enjoy AlterIW and don’t cheat or noob tube.

UPDATE 1 !

If the method above is not working for you, maybe you can try the following methods:

RudeBoy method: I have two cards, one is broken, so I disabled it, that was the problem.

Nixan Method: MAC RESETTING (if you changed it before)

Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections\

Open Local Area Connection Properties

Click Configure

Open Advanced tab

Select Network Address and check Not Present

UPDATE 2

If you have tried everything here and still have a problem, you probably have messed your iw_22.iwd, you can download the copy that is currently working for me here

Please continue to report if any of these worked for you, and if not how did you solve the problem.

Recovering passwords deleted or overwritten in Opera

I personally suffer from a very bad memory, sometimes I wonder if I still have one. For that I rely too much on the Opera wand to save my passwords. the bad thing is that sometimes, and by mistake you overwrite a good password that was stored. and you can’t remember what it was.

Unfortunately, opera does not backup your passwords, and to recover this precious password you will have only one hope, and you will have to running windows Vista or 7..

1. Close Opera

2. Navigate to  E:\Users\YOU\AppData\Roaming\Opera\Opera  and find the file wand.dat.

3. right click it, select properties and select, “restore previous versions”

4. if you are lucky, there should be a previous version of the file dating before the date where you overwritten the password.

5. Overwrite the current file with the recovered one.

Open Opera, you should have your password back!

I think you also do this to recover deleted history, deleted bookmarks, etc. you will just have to recover the right file

Connecting to IWnet… Am I banned? ALTERIWNET

Many of you must have heard about the alteriwnet, for those who didn’t, it is an alternative network to play Call of Duty : Modern warfare II. which has come as a reaction to the lack of dedicated server support on this new COD.

What is good about this network is that cheater can be easily reported and banned from the game ( I hope they would do the same to gl noobs as well).

When you are banned from the network, the game will display a message “Connecting to IWNet…” and never connects.

If you haven’t cheated,  (( now have you? >:(  )) but you got this message then it could be one of the following:

– Someone has reported you because of a personal problem.

-Someone else using your computer DID cheat and got busted.

For the two above you will have to file a complaint to the alteriwnet forums and see what you can do.

Now for the things that can block you game from connecting even though you are not banned

-You have installed and running Hamachi

-You have installed and running Tunngle

-You have installed an inactive network card

-Your windows mobile phone is connected to your computer 🙂

simply go to the “network adapters confuguration” on your cmputer whatever the hell you kids call it today, (on XP: network connections, on Vista:Manage Network Connections, and on 7: confirgure network thingy) And disable every network card excep for the one that is providing you with Internet access. If the game still doesn’t work then your ass is banned or you simply do not have internet access.

Internet, files and printers sharing on a windows 7 computer

Windows 7 has brought a change in the Windows handles Internet sharing ( internet sharing is one computer is connected to the internet and the rest of the computers on the LAN connects to it to get online).
For windows XP and Vista, internet sharing is achieved by setting the IP of the computer’s network card to 192.168.0.1 then enabling a DHCP internal windows service to provide IP addresses to the rest of the computers. Windows 7 uses the following IP address instead : 192.168.137.1. I don’t know what’s so cool about 137 other than the fact that it is not zero, which is the sub network used by many network admins and that could create conflicts when a used starts internet sharing.

to get Windows 7 to share an Internet connection, just right click the modem/ network card that is connected to the internet select properties then sharing, enable sharing to your LAN, that’s it.

Things get more complicated if you try to share a windows 7 internet connection through a wireless access point. Usually access points have a dedicated network port to be connected to the internet source (that is the case with D-link). if you just plug that into your computer it will not work, not only because of the fact that you will need to use a crossover (needs testing to confirm) to switch the send\receive lines. but also you will be unable to get file and printer sharing normally from the server computer. because the IP that your computer is proving the access point will be considered a WAN IP, and the access point will not be able to DHCP the client computers to the same IP range as the WAN IP.

The solution here is to place a switch between the wireless AP and the computer, with DHCP off. the AP will get the wan IP from your computer, something like 192.168.137.100, then with the AP’s DHCP it will assign IPs in the range of 192.168.1.xxx to other wireless clients.

to get file and printer sharing you will need to directly connect to the server computers IP, as it will not appear as a regular computer in your network.

to create a shortcut to the server’s shared files :
right click your desktop, select new then click shortcut
for the address write :
\\192.168.137.1

If you have file sharing enabled through your windows 7, you will be able to access shared files and printers.

I also have another approach that is not that catholic, and that is to place a normal network cable between the AP’s LAN ports and the switch. this will create an irregularity where the AP tries to assign an IP to the server, and the server already has an IP and that is the WAN IP of the AP, if you are lucky, your server will appear as a regular computer with other wireless clients, but this is a very unstable method and I wouldn’t recommend it.

I also noticed that file sharing speed through this method is not that great, I will look some more into that.

Any Ideas, thoughts or discoveries? please share 🙂
