      Router Firewall question

      Just got my Sky broadband up and running last night, my wireless connection works fine although much slower than my old cable connection.

      Anyway…. I checked if it would let me connect to an online game, I play BF2142 and I got into the online game browser fine but I can’t connect to any game servers.

      I’ve read somewhere that the Sky router has it’s own fire wall, is this my problem ?, if so can I / is it safe to disable this, I do have Zone alarm which has served me well so far.

      Can someone point me in the right direction, any help would be much appreciated.
