I CANT HOST GAMES!! its no annoying i host a game and no one comes so i never get to play my favorite games... i no it has something to do with my stupid firewall/router/ip adress/ports or w/e... can people give me a few suggestions on how to kill, i mean take away those things or change them?:confused::confused::confused::confused::confused::confused:
I didn't make it!
I've been getting the same problems. It's probably from your router. I don't know if this will work but it's worth a try. Type in you IP address into your web browser's address bar. b. Put in the username and password; I think the default is no username and the word "admin" (without the quotes):p for the password. c. Once you're in the settings, click the Applications/Gaming link that you see on the router's home page. If you don't see an Applications/Gaming link, look for an Advanced link. If you see that, click it and then click the Port Forwarding link. d. In the first row of boxes, put the following:
Application - (whatever you want to call it, i.e. "Warcraft III") Start - 6112 End - 6112 Protocol - TCP IP address - the last three numbers of your computer's IP address. To find out what those numbers are, follow these steps:
- Click Start - Click Run - Type cmd (Windows 2000 and XP) or command (Windows 95, 98 and Me) in the Run box, then click OK - When the black box comes up, type ipconfig and hit Enter. The computer's IP address will be listed.
Back to the router settings - make sure the Enable box is checked, then save the settings. Try hosting a Warcraft III game again.
