#1 We (the helpers) see you:

a) Forwarded the ports to your computer.

b) Posted a screen shot of the results of this port tester

#2 Also some where in your router, you saw the same IP Address that you see at

http://www.pcwintech.com/myip

?

#3 If you do not know where to look in the router for that IP Address: What is the brand and model of your router?

Since you already posted a screen of the port tester, post a screen shot of the port forwarding page in the router so I can check the rules :wink:

Hi Shane.
Got a problem with a game i have been playing for a few months now and it worked fine all this time til about 3 weeks ago.
Now i can only connect to a very few people in my friends list (2 or 3 out of 20). Maybe 1 or 2 nights a week i can connect to all of them.
Why does this change? Been waiting weeks for Ubisoft to come up with a solution. I have sent them DXDIAG and info and all other files they wanted.
Can you help??? pleeeeaze?
PS: Sorry but i am new to this and don't know how to create a new topic.

Shagzy2013, this is twice now you hijacked someone elses thread, I already moved your last post into a thread for you and you never replied. Please reply there and I will help you. I only help 1 person per thread so I dont get confused on who is doing what. Creating a new topic isnt hard, you got the the forum and click new topic :wink:

corey46, isnt frontier internet a satellite ISP? If so they may be blocking ports, or they may have you behind a 2nd network. So far port forwarding rules look good, firewall in the router is off and as long as DMZ isnt enabled then the port forwarding should be working.

One way to confirm it is the ISP or router and not something on your computer is to setup a test port forwarding rule to a 2nd computer and see if it works. If it does then you know it is something wrong on your system, if it also doesnt work then we know it is either the router or ISP :wink:
