      Print Screen example of Router Set for Netgear DG934G

      Guys I am having all sorts of problems trying to open ports on my router please can someone offer some advise as I have read through this forum and still are not able to
      configure correctly. My current set up is as follows:

      Pc Windows Vista 32 bit is connected to my router (Netgear DG934G) and all computers in my house are hardwired. I would like to open ports 5000 to 5005 on a computer that will be hosting a game situated in my Gym. This machine is Win XP 32 bit. I have opened the ports on the router and then used www. portforward/checker on the XP machine which confirms that the ports are open.

      However when someone joins the server they loose connection I have also checked to make sure there are open ports on the firewall in XP but this still has not solved the issue. Please could someone possibly provide a screen print of their port configuration so I can cross check this with my set up.I appreciate that Sky use Dynamic ip address but mine changes only when I reboot the router so I don't think this could be the issue.
      Regards Steve

      It looks as though that you have opened the ports on your router.

      With regards to your IP address changing, you might benefit from using DynDNS.com. Your router can be configured to update the database whenever your IP address changes.

      I'd also double check:

      a. that it all works on the Gym's LAN (i.e. plug the PC in there)
      b. that the ports aren't being blocked at the Gym
      c. that you have sufficient bandwidth for it all to work. Your home's max upload bandwidth being the more important aspect in this instance

      As Scubbie suggests it may be a bandwidth problem, what are your down/up speeds?

      I will give the speedtest a try as this is something I have not undertaken - Scubbie and Tom thanks for you reply. Regards Steve

      Try posting your stats, these may provide a clearer indication of any line issues. Also take a look at the actual bandwidth the game requires.

      Speedtest.net will provide you with a clear idea of what your line is capable of in terms of actual performance, but be aware that any such test should be taken at different times of the day and on different host servers.

      There are a whole range of tools available to monitor the bandwidth used by a particular computer. It might be worth taking the PC into the Gym and installing such a tool. If the used bandwidth it significant (say 2/3rds of you max upload) then this will have a detrimental affect on your ADSL connection. 90% or more and the issues will only get worse.

      Sky use ADSL2+ Annex A. This has a maximum upload speed of 1.3Mb. In sky's implementation, this is normally around 1Mb, but individual speeds vary.

      Hi Scubbie
      These are the stats taken from my router:

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 16665 kbps 1111 kbps

      Line Attenuation 22 db 10 db

      Noise Margin 7 db 7 db

      Does not mean that much to me but I guess you will know if this is good or bad.

      Your stats are on par with my own. I would not expect your upload to exceed 1Mbps in total, but more likely to be around .95Mbps.

      Take a look here for an explanation of your stats.

      Not knowing the specific requirements of your game or the processor/memory of the computer I can see problems galore.

      I do believe that you would benefit from Annex M which would give you up to 2.3Mbps upload speed at best. Sky don't offer this. As a comparison, I have had Annex M with another ISP where I am. My d/l was 15.4Mbps & 2.3Mbps u/l.

      Alternatively a dedicated Server on the web would resolve all your issues of bandwidth. This will need to be funded somehow though.

      I would also strongly recommend that you check any forums specifically related to your game. Other members are able to play multi-plater games such a Xbox & PS/3 on Sky's BB.

      Your connection is fairly good for Sky, with only a small percentage having faster speeds for both up & down.

      Ok Scubbie thanks very much for your detailed response. I undertake quite a bit of online
      sport i.e cycling and rowing and in order to undertake this I need to open a number of ports so that partisipants can take part and compete with each other online be it rowing or cycling. I shall follow you advice - Thanks

      Try a speedtest here - Sky User - Broadband Speed Tester just in case you have a throughput problem.

      You might also want to use Simple port forwarding to set up your ports, this greatly simplifies the procedure -
