      Unable to host (Sky router v2)

      I've had no problems whatsoever with anything sky related besides this new router which was given to me as part of my sky package. Aka the black netgear sky router.
      The only problem is being able to host games, mainly warcraft 3 related.

      I have tried opening ports 6112-6119
      Enable all traffic - firewall
      Using hosting programs
      Router default settings

      It's troubling, because I'm starting to think sky's router cuts inbound traffic, since I'm told all ports Time-out no matter what I do.

      Although, when I do have my portfowarding ON, it makes people instant-time out when joining my game, rather than time out for a long time.

      You can follow the instructions on how to setup port-forwarding for Warcraft 3 for your router here: Port Forwarding Warcraft III on the Netgear DG934G

      Make sure you are forwarding the port to the correct LAN IP Address, you can set static DHCP Reservations for the PC's on your network.

      You can view the current LAN IP address of your computer by opening a command prompt (type cmd in the run box in windows or in the search bar in Vista) and then typing ipconfig /all

      Look for your network adapter in the list it displays and you will find your Local IP.

      Hope that's helpful

      I am pretty sure you don't need the rule in the outbound section, just inbound.

      Done ages ago; The images above if you read, proves that.

      Make sure you are forwarding the port to the correct LAN IP Address, you can set static DHCP Reservations for the PC's on your network.
      Is there a "correct" port? This is netgear we're talking about.

      You can view the current LAN IP address of your computer by opening a command prompt (type cmd in the run box in windows or in the search bar in Vista) and then typing ipconfig /all

      Look for your network adapter in the list it displays and you will find your Local IP.
      Again, basic netgear stuff

      Yes, netgear were smart enough to add the "allow all" to make things user-friendly, unless you want to do advanced things.

      Will report soon (: (whoops, ugly emotes)
