Port forwarding problems, playing Total Annihilation (TA)

Hi, im play TA through the router and have never managed to get everything working 100% correctly. Currently: *I can join and play games without problems *When i try to host games the router disconnects and needs to be restarted manually when anyone attempts to join. suggests that i use the DMZ mode. strangely doing this stops me playing the game at all. I have also had the router do a random disconnect during this message, which is quite a common occurance. Moving the router away from all other electronics clearly hasent helped: (solution suggested in a previous problem) can anyone here put any guesses as to what my problem(s) might be? thanks Woody

I think you may have to find out the port used by the game and set that port to be allowed access against your specific pc IP address in the virtual servers menu in your routers settings.

My belking keeps losing connection during games?

If your wireless you probably need to change broadcast channels on the router ( to the last channel) if its hard wired, you probably need to port forward the ip address for the Xbox

Playing Online Games Behind The Router

A router uses a combination of hardware and software to prevent unauthorized users or internet traffic from accessing your private local area network (LAN). If your game console, such as Playstation is behind the router, you will need to configure routers Port Forwarding feature in order to play online games.

Note: You will need to get the ports and service type for your games. This is usually available from the games website.

Steps how to configure router to play online games:
  1. Open a browser and type in the following URL: or (depending on the model number of the router)
  2. Type the Username as admin and the Password as password and click OK.
  3. Click on Port Forwarding under Advanced menu.
  4. Then click on Add Custom Service
5. Under Service Name, type the name of the game.
  • Select the Service Type from the drop down menu (depending on the game).
  • Type the Starting Port and Ending Port numbers (depending on the game).
  • Type the IP address of your PlayStation in the Server IP Address box and click Apply.
  • Click on WAN Setup under ADVANCED menu.
    • Check the Disable SPI firewall box
    • Change MTU size from 1500 (which is the default) to 1300 and click Apply.
    Now the Playstation is ready to use.

    I hope this helps...

    Hi i have a satellite internet provider and im trying to set up my linksys broadband router so i can hook up my xbox 360 my problem is everytime i hook it up im getting no internet connection can you tell...

    there are two things to be addressed in this case.firstly you have a satellite internet provider which can create consistency issue.then when you connect a xbox to router you need to do a port forwading on linksys router(port forwarding=opening ports in router so your xbox can communicate freely).in order to do the port forwarding you have to log onto router user interface.then go to applications and gaming tab,where you can do the port forwarding.
    but before doing so,you have to contact microsoft to know the ip address assigned to the xbox and the ports(numbers) to be opened.
    thank you.
