I have tried uninstall and reinstall, and I never had a problem with DoW online, but WA wont let me log on to the servers. I get a message telling me that a firewall is blocking the connection. I have tried turning off the windows firewall, etc. In the 'read me', there is mention of Linksys router BFSR41 not playing well with this game...kinda makes me wonder why such a popular router would be allowed to be incompatible, but any ideas? I suppose next stop is to try a direct DSL connection and see if that works...then I know its the router...but any other ideas to get it to work? Is it some port issue? Kinda sux that THQ doesnt include any support for network and connection issues with their product. I tried asking them and have received no response.

They include plenty of support. Some routers just dont work with gamespy its not THQ's fault. Or relics. If you have this firewall take it off if you want to play.

Exactly Relic and THQ dosent have anything to do with it,gamespy is a seperate thing.....Good call Chip. Try updating your drivers Wetworx,I had the same problem with my router...different brand but it worked
