I am willing to learn about the network connections for online games, like ORPG or MORPG (just network connections between the game client and a server computer). I have heard that some use C#, but I actually dislike C#. If there are other ways to do this, can you please tell me where to study about them?

Are you planning on writing code or just learning about networking in games (specifically (MM)ORPGs)? If you're planning on writing something, what platform and language are you using, and what platforms are you targeting?

he game specific aspects of networking isn't bound to any programming languages. There are many different networking libraries out there, but the only one coming to my mind now is RakNet. If you want to do it more low-level (perhaps for learning) you might want to check out WinSock if you're on Windows.

There are ten kinds of people in this world: those who understand binary and those who don't.

For Windows using C/C++, the following on the MSDN are pretty ideal.

(Server) http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-gb/library/windows/desktop/ms737593%28v=vs.85%29.aspx

They are as simple as it gets for TCP connections.
