Hello..... I'm new to Sky and I got my wireless PC up and running late last night so I didn't have time to look for a fix.
My problem is that I can't connect to any online game servers (I play BF2142), I can load the online game browser and see all the servers - I just can't connect to them, is the router firewall blocking this ?
If so how do I enable it, any help comments would be much appreciated.

Re: Firewall help
I have been playing BF games for some years including 2142, there is no need to make any changes to the router to play these games online, although playing over wireless I would suggest you look at your ping. Is it that nothing happends when u click on connect or do u drop connections / get booted due to high ping. I would also temporarily disable any software firewall you have on the pC such as windows firewall to make sure the issue is with the router. Note that sky does have an exisitng issue with bad pings as seen on the frontpage of this site, however I do not experience any issues and Im playing one game or another online most nights (sad I know)
That being said if you are going to host an online or lan game then some rules will need to be created, this depends on the game

Re: Firewall help
The loading progess bar starts but then stops, then it either hangs or comes up with an conection error.
Thanks for the reply, at least I know not bother messing with the router.
