It is I, again. Im having problems conserning my being able to host and join games on Legacy. I can get as far as the "Join Game" option, and search for some games... but I cant join a game. I also get as far as hosting a game, but my game wont let me host one. I have a great internet connection, but this damned game wont let me roam the internet! Has anyone else experenced this and actually got a way around it? If it involves protection, I have McAffee, with the absolute latest version. I have a big gaming event tomorrow, and it involves internet!

One question, are you on a router?

Is so: Try reconfiguring your router. Many router's have built in firewalls, so usually block things like game hosting and such. You can usually find the options to reconfigure your router on the bottom of it. There should be an IP address and a default username and password. Type in the IP address in your URL bar at the top of your internet browser and press enter, then enter the username and password. Then you can edit your router options there. If the username and password etc can't be found on the bottom of your router, try looking in the manual that came with it.

If having a router means having broadband, then yes, I do have one. I'll reconfigure it by those means.

Not exactly, as you can use two types of devices for broadband, one being an ADSL modem, the other being a router. The router allows for wireless connections and usually has a small antenna connected to the back of it.
