Hey, One of my favorite PC games is Age of Empires 2.. I always went to msn zone with my friend to play online. Well. I've gotten dsl, its Bellsouth Fast Access, and ever since i got it, switching from modem to dsl, i cannot play AOE2 online ne more. I don't know if its because of dsl, but it wont let me play. Let me explain what happens. I go to zone, login, and go to the room list place for AOE2, i find a room that interest me and i go in, once the host starts the game, it loads up, and the AOE2 screen comes up and begins loading. It sits there loading for about 5 minutes, when it then says 'Unable to Join Game', and it kicks me off. I tried another room just to see if there was something wrong with that room, same tihng happened. I created a room, finally, luck, it took me to the room where u choose your color, civilization and whatever. But. I sat there and waited and the other players never came in, so i blamed this on my problem. Because in the past this never happened. please someone help me....i really miss playing aoe2 online with my friends :( i'm missing out on alot of fun.... Thanks for your time. Gadr3n_Gr0ve

By any chance did you install a firewall after switching ISPs? That sounds like what is happening. You need to open up certain ports in order to play online.
Can u tell me how to do all that??? im not really cpu literate -_-;
Its most likely a router problem.
For most routers you type this in the address bar, 192.168.2.1
That should bring you to a login screen (most of the time the password is nothing) or straight to the control panell for your router. Look around for your firewall settings and turn off your firewall. If that still dosn't work, look in your router instruction manual on how to open up ports. Then search the help for AOE2 and find what parts need to be oppended.
Also make sure you have no running firewalls like Zonealarm or Mcafee Firewall.
I didn't make it!
