HALLO!! just today i have been gettin the 'client unknown to auth" in every server. i then went to the console and refreshed the list, still in all get the same error. When i clicked "get new list" it completly took the list of servers away and now when i click the refresh button, i cant get any servers to appear in the list, sometimes gettin the message in the bottom left "waiting for a response from master server" My connection is fine, cable modem, i have a 1.4atlon XP, 512 RAM 64DDR radeon video. I totally unistalled the game and reinstalled, still gettin the same results (not gettin any servers in the list). Yes, i did buy and own this game and serial number, and i have all the latest patches and downloads. PLEASE HILFER!!! MEDIC!! MEDIC!!

Sounds like a network problem, can you ping servers? (know what I mean?) "client unkown to auth" usually means prob with CD key, sometimes if you time out of a game the master server doesn't release your cd key right away and thinks you are still playing on another server.
In this case however it sounds like there is a network problem between you and the master server. Had a similar problem once, as have others, that fixed itself in a few days. Could be as simple as a downed backbone between you and master server, if your packets are getting lost on the way due to routing problems it may not be seeing your key as valid. My advice, wait a few days, if still having probs try contacting your ISP.
Hello KID :) thanx for replying for the help, i really appreciate it. I can ping anything, and any server. What i did was brought the install to my laptop at work, same CD KEY, and i was able to jump into anything i wanted. So i am thinking maybe i 'jarred' the master server into giving up my key..lol also this morning when i tried i checked and i had the same IP at home i had when i first tried the night before, so i will wait till i get home today, maybe i'll have a diff IP. And if not, then do the waiting thing....lol Thanks again.
HALLO!!!!! i tried again after work, still no go; on the same IP i had tried on before. Just for the hell of it, i go to clear my 'cookies', well i saw this stupid little 'monkie' icon in there; with some 'code' after it. so i try wolf one more time before i kill it---no go. I whacked the hell outta this lil cookie,left all the others, and now i jumped right into wolf NO PROBLEM!!!!! so that may be another lil "check" if anything happens again yall. And thanks for all who viewed, and all who pondered, and all who replied..lol (Apocalypse_kid) Laters Yall
