Online games generaly require you to have particular"ports" open to play them through a router,i would assume it should tell you on the site which ones need to be open,chances are they are already open......do you have a firewall?like Zone Alarm?

:eek: :uhoh: :eek:

Not a good idea at all. Leave that Firewall running. :nodding: Hackers, and port viruses are not a joke. Your computer could be used to hack your governement's computers, putting you in hot water.

Just configure the Firewall to allow the program to access the internet. You may also need to configure port access in the Firewall as well.

The question is, what ports should you enable?

Your router has to have a different address. Your router should send out dynamically assigned address to your computers. To find your ip, go to the c prompt and enter "ipconfig" Try entering "ipconfig /renew" and it should refresh your IP from the router. It will show you your new IP.

The FBI have become a little more lenient in light of the many occurences. I haven't heard of real instance. I was just stating worst case scenario. :D

I've heard of some regular U.S. companies sueing average users, because they're computers were used for illegal activities. They proved that it was a hacker, and the courts let them go.
