I created a small website that contains links to sites that tell you what to do to be able to host games. I spend a lot of time in Open Tech Support @ USEast and a good 95% of all the questions asked are how to host games. I hope this site helps! :)

All you do to host, is put your ethernet cord DIRECTLY into the modem, then make a connection with Windows. It works everytime.

This took me forever to figure out, so if you put it somewhere else, please give me credit.

No, That's not how you configure your router to host games.

If you were acting sarcastic, it wasn't funny.

Sorry, it works..

I don't use a router because it doesn't work for me, if you connect it to your modem it does work. Someone needs to think outside the box before commenting others...

Some people have small networks, and need to have more than one computer connected to the internet all the time.

That's the reason I made the webpage, if I just told everyone to "Get rid of your router"...it wouldn't help them much.

Yea, I guess not. But why would you have a network that can't go offline?

Some people want to leave the router connected because they have other computers and other people in the house that share the internet connection.

It wouldn't make sense if somebody bought a router for that purpose, then have to disconnect it everytime they play a game.

But they get a slower connection by using a router, therefor, routers are useless for online gaming

How does that fit here? This is a useless arguement. I have 2 computers that are always running and that are both connected to the Internet 24/7, and the connection isn't slow when playing online games. "Go and unplug your router to host" is the most useless tip.
