I've been recieving another error message when trying to access an online server. The message states that I have lost connection with the server. It may not be a Battlefield 2 problem, but it happens EVERY SINGLE TIME I try to go onto a server. Can anyone help me.....again?!:bawl:
One word - Firewall - sounds like whatever you are using needs to be configured to allow BF2 out.
I've tried that. It hasn't worked. I'm operating on a Norton Internet Security Firewall. I would like to get on soon, so please respond ASAP. THANK YOU!!!
Shut off the firewall for a few moments and see if you can play .. If you can then you know for a fact the firewall is the issue. ;)
The firewall is the issue. Now then, is there a way to get the firewall up and STILL play?:confused:
Yes you need to set BF2 as an allowed application in the firewall configuration. Read your manual for how to do it.
People who have hardware firewalls turn out to know absolutely NOTHING about what they are getting into. You would be better off getting a dlink switch and using a software firewall that is user friendly like zonealarm till you can learn about firewalls, dmz's, port forwarding and so on.
My dip-$%!^ father is telling me that it's a software firewall, not a hardware. I can't do a damn thing until I can get some proof that it's a hardware file. Until then, I won't being seeing y'all on the battlefield:bawl: . Please give me the information on how to figure out if it's a hardware firewall or not. Thanks.
Do you have DSL ? If yes. Check a peak at the dsl modem .. Get the model numbers off said dsl modem. GOOGLE is your friend. Google the model number, it will come up with the modem's information.. Or where to get it. When you have that ...... post what you find. :D

If it's a software firewall it will either be a program running on the computer (ie: nortons firewall, Keiro personal firewall etc) or the standard windows firewall. if it's a software firewall it will have come with instructions. If it is a software firewall just get your dad to point you in the direction of the instructions then read them. If he can't show you the instructions, or show you how to configure it, then he shouldn't be running it. I can't count the number of computers I have had to fix when IE couldn't access the net and the user had accidently blocked it at their software firewall :D All good money for me of course, and about 5 minutes work for an hours pay.
Not all modems have inbuilt firewalls, so it could be software, but we are limited in how we can help you due to the information supplied, the more info you can supply us with, the better we can help you.
