i checked, i have no firewalls, but the problem still presists. When i'm just browsing the interent its really fast, but for some reason in battlefield vietnam the pigns are huge an ALL servers.
my internet company says that it should be running at 1.544mbps, is that fast?
that is what i have for a download speed with my DSL. if that is a upload speed that is not bad. but i would expect more from a T1. is yours the only computer on the T1 connection? also did you turn off the firewall built into windows XP?
No i'm on a network, but it was the same when it was directly connected. Also i turned off the windows firewall.
Even if you don't have a 3rd party firewalled installed (like Norton), Windows has it's own firewall. Check to see if it's active. That was the problem I had.
I have norton on my computer is there a way to deactivate its firewall?

Ender WigginSounds like you have a router installed (the device you mentioned). Since a router will act as a hardware firewall (which means all the ports will be closed by default) you'll need to open/forward a port on there in order to play an online game of BFV. You'll need to open/forward port 15567 UDP Protocol and enable it for the IP address of the computer you want to play the game on. Any help with HOW to do this requires that we know what kind of router you have (model and number).
hi i just got a router and im having connect problems with my game, it will connect but wont stay connected here is my router mod and num: linksys BEFSR41 , hopefully it will be just the port being closed, thanks
