Every time I open Blender, it disables my WiFi card. It doesn’t allow me to re-enable it until I end the process, and sometimes until I restart my computer. Is there a way for me to disable the application’s connection to the internet entirely? Is there something else I should be looking at? Its not a super big deal its just quite annoying.
you arent using the steam blender are you?
When you ask such a question, you’ll want to give out as much information about your system (and the version of Blender you are using) as possible.
Having said that:
- Blender (the official version downloaded from blender.org) does not connect to the internet
- I have never seen anyone else report this problem, so it must be very rare (making it hard to fix)
- Your computer is probably no good anyway, buy a new one and save yourself the time figuring out what the problem is
@ daedalus yes, I was and I originally thought that to be the problem. I reinstalled it without steam and it gives me the same problem, but much less often.
@ Beerbaron yes I thought so, but I might’ve turned on one of the cloud services on accident and it dislikes my internet. Just asking. For point two, obviously. I’d appreciate more ideas on how to fix it though instead of just calling my computer “no good” after I built it myself. Your opinion is probably no good anyway, save yourself the trouble and be nice to people.
My specs are intel i7 4770k @3.5mhz (I think), nvidia gtx670 4gb vram, 8gb ram, and for wireless I have Realtek RTL8192CE PCI chip. Any insight that isn’t “buy a new one” would be appreciated.
What “cloud service”? Is it a Blender addon? Are you sure it is Blender that is causing it, or is it rather some other crappy program installed that is responding to Blender being launched?
If it’s the former, try resetting Blender’s user data by temporarily moving the “2.78” folder inside of:
… assuming you are using Windows (paste the line into the explorer window, the %APPDATA% variable will resolve) and version 2.78 of Blender. This folder contains all the addons you installed, your user configuration, etc.
If it’s the latter, reinstall Windows. If that doesn’t help, buy a new computer.

Don’t take the snark personally, I said “probably” because I don’t know you or your handcrafted computer personally. Having said that, it probably is no good anyway, because you probably put it into one of these hideous-looking gamer cases.

If you can get a better opinion that mine on these forums (unlikely), you better take it.

What’s your operating system and version of Blender? Those are the two most important pieces of information about your system.

That thing is probably no good, buy a new one.

Beggars can’t be choosers!
Literally was absolutely not begging? I just said it was inconvenient, and was asking if anyone had similar problems or any ideas how to fix. Did not ask for your rude attitude and terrible fixing ideas. Didn’t your mom teach you any goddamn manners?
“The saying beggars can’t be choosers means that people who need something must be satisfied with whatever they get even if it is not exactly what they wanted.”
You’re asking for free advice, you’re getting my advice, which is still pretty good advice considering what I got to work with here. The price for my advice is snark.

You still haven’t provided essential information, such as operating system, blender version, plugins etc.
Without that at the very least, no-one is going to be able to help.
If you originally installed the steam version, to rule it out as the culprit ensure you have completely removed all files associated with its installation.
Some files will most likely be left behind if you just uninstalled it. For the config file etc locations see https://docs.blender.org/manual/en/dev/getting_started/installing/configuration/directories.html
For any hardware you have also ensure you are using latest latest drivers
I didn’t realize it kept old files from the previous install, I thought I had wiped it with windows uninstaller. Fully functioning and I don’t have to buy a new computer, who knew? Thanks Richard, that helped.
