Still cannot play LAN games, used to can't now. I've checked everything I know (didn't take long) I've had a response suggesting a system restore, but that isn't going to help as I cannot point to the...


Did you get a new router or connection to the internet? The LAN games must see your ip address to communicate with you. If yours router or firewall is hiding the ip address, or if they're seeing an address starting with 192.168 or 10.10., that's the wrong ip address.

Some a/v software which includes a firewall can prevent connection too, and just disabling its firewall might not be good enough to get through. If you use the Windows firewall, it can be disabled as a test.

Skillground error 357


i've tried (for several days now) to download the software, but everytime i click "download & play" nothing happens
(it looks like the 'page' just keeps refreshing it self for several minutes, ending in a "error code 357" message!

I contacted skillground numerous times , and thou they are helpful in their replies.. they keep saying that its my router and/or firewall that prevents the software from downloading.. BUT

even when i disable the router (running the internet cable direct from the "wall plug" into my pc) , and disableing my firewall (Norton) (i have even tried uninstalling the Norton).... its still the same problem

I've allowed cookies... set the internet security to minimum ..disabled the router and Norton firewall, ..removed the skillground 'program' and even tried to create another account ...but its still the same problem ... so i've ran out of idea's

but have you tried checking (in addition to your router, and norton firewalls) the built-in vista firewall?

Hello i have 2 pcs and i have my rounter wired up to my modem andand to the 2nd pc downstairs but when i try to go on online gaming there not resonding but when i take the router out i get everything. i...


BELLS RED FLAGS ALARMS WHISTLES WARNINGS
a site that requires you shut down protection,
has some intent of using that lack of protection.
usually its something nasty

online gaming should not require more than the opening of the NAT in the router to the address of the game host.
check the settings of the router many have prewritten rules for the major game hosts, that just need to have the checkbox marked.
I have 3 sons with different online gaming and have not had to disable the firewall

using the routers built in menu, cant tell you the address beyound 192.168.0.* because no details on router model, you can enable gaming mode, and leave the firewall intact.
goto the manufacturer(router) webpage and check the FAQ for your router

I have a dlink - dir-301 wireless router and i can connect, i can see my network but i can connect, even though all correct lights are on the router and i have the correct password


1) Check and test your firewall. Your firewall, especially if its a software firewall like ZoneAlarm, Black Ice, Norton Firewall or something else could be blocking the connection. Disable your firewall and test the connection.

2) Check your IP address

3) Reset your TCP/IP stack by downloading and running WinsockXPFix.exe a Visual Basic program designed to fix corrupted TCP/IP issues, host file problems and a variety of other connectivity issues.

I want to diasble my router firewall and cant fiquere where its at


Disable router firewalls by logging in to the administration interface of your router and looking for a firewall section.

To log type http://192.168.0.1

The administration interfaces differ depending on the manufacturer and model, so your wireless router might not have a firewall section. If it does, click on that section and turn off the firewall.
Step2Forward a port. If the firewall is preventing an external computer from connecting to your internal client, you will need to forward a port to your client. Step3Find your internal IP address. Step4Click on "Start -> Run..." and enter "cmd" into the box. When the command-line pops up, enter "ipconfig" and hit "Enter." Find your IP address in the statistics that are printed out. Step5Refer to your software's documentation to find which port number must be forwarded. Step6Log in to your router's administration interface. Step7Click on "Port Forwarding" or an equivalently named section. The name of the section will differ depending on your router's manufacturer and model. Step8Add, on the correct port, a forward to your IP address. You will have to update this port forward in the future if your IP address changes. If your IP address changes often, ask your network administrator for a static IP address. This will fix your problem. Don't forget to rate my help! :-)

Norton keeps blocking my router because it thinks a particular website is introducing a "Portscan" worm. It then blocks all access to any website for 30 minutes! Patrick


If you are running XP service pack 2 or higher you have the Windows firewall installed.
Windows firewall will always conflict with a third party firewall and despite the fact Norton informs you the Windows firewall is disabled it's not.
Norton is a serious resource hog, consider removing Norton and going with one of the free antivirus apps like AVG 8.0 or Avast.
Enabling the Windows firewall and using a router will protect you, all modern routers have a built in hardware firewall.

Can't receive my E-Mail


Depends on the (client) program you are using, but...


1) Test your WEB Browser (Internet Explorer or Firefox),
to make sure you can get MSN or Google.

This tell you if the network and the TCP/IP stack are
working properly.

2) If the network is fine, open you email client and check
your server setting for: POP-3, and SMTP.

These setting must match those specified by your
IP service provider.

Also make sure that the email login and server password
are correct.

3) Pay particular attention to the error messages you
get inside you email client, when it fails to access the
server. These should give you a clue:

a) Can't find server / invalid domain name ... etc...
b) Can't login ... user not authorized...
c) No network connection ... denied...

etc...

4) Server and domain name problems indicate a typo or
error in your POP3/ SMTP settings. These are sometimes
changed by the IP provider, so please check with them.
Also check the port numbers:

Port 110 = POP3 = Incoming mail server
Port 25 = SMTP = Outgoing mail server

are typical, but it really depends on th provider.

5) If you can't login, the login ID or password are wrong,
or your provider has closed you account, which they tend
do to with a nasty deliberation if you owe them money.

6) If the email program cannot connect to the internet at
all, but you WEB browser can, then you have a fire wall
problem.

Check these firewall, and disable them temporarily,
to see if it fixes the email problem:

The Windows Firewall: Control Panel === Windows Firewall
(disable it)

Any software firewall you may have installed, such as
Norton's, AVG antivirus...etc. Disable them too.

If you use an external router or residential gateway
to connect to the internet, such as SISCO, CVG, SMC

Log into the router using your WEB browser, and disable the
firewall.

7) Once you identify a firewall problem, you need to setup
exceptions for your email client.

8) If you cannot get any Internet, including the WEB,
then you have a different problem.

a) run the Windows Network setup wizard again,
from the control panel.

b) If you connect directly to the Internet through your cable
or DSL this should fix it.

c) If you still use a telephone modem, that has to be
setup as well.

d) If you use a residential gateway, barricade or router
to connect to DSL or CABLE, then you need to set
that up next using you WEB browser. Typical router
address is: 192.168.1.1

e) In the case of DSL you router may also need to be
programmed with you login/password info, because in
this case it is the router that connects and logs into
your internet provider's server, not your computer.
(your computer sees the router, not the provider.)

Anyway, not knowing what your exact problem is,
I think that I have covered the waterfront here,
hope it helps.

Please rate my answers.

I HAVE A PROB WITH MY WIRELESS ROUTER LINKSYS EVERYTHING IS CONECTED RIGHT AND AND SAYS STILL CAINT FIND INTERNET HELP ME


go to linksys.com

I think you have to enter an ip to access your router like 100,101,1 or something and it goes into your router setings. Otherwise you can just unplug your ethernet, unplug your router. Then plug in your router..wait for the green light, then plug in your eithernet. Sometimes you need to disable the hardware firewall and install a software firewall...those things are hard to work around.
