  • Router/firewall help please

    Hey guys,

    Since my new build I have been having trouble staying connected to BF2 and 2142. I get multiple connection issues per game and I will finally loose connection at least once a night. I don't know too much about setting up my router but here are the steps I have taken to try and resolve the issue.

    1)I have onboard NIC and my drivers for the mobo are up to date.
    2)My firmware to my router/firewall has the latest version to date.
    3)My bios are all up to date
    4)I have tried to open all of the ports that BF2 uses but I don't have enough
    slots to put all the TCP/UDP ports in. So I put all the UDP ports in and one
    TCP port in and made no difference.
    5) Punkbuster is up to date for BF2 and 2142

    My Specs
    AMD FX-55 San Diego 2.6gig OC'd to 2.75
    Abit AN8 x32 SLI mobo
    2gig Corsair TwinX DDR 400 mem
    2 7800GT EVGA GFX cards
    Thermaltake 600wt PSU
    Thermaltake Soprano case
    Linksys BEFSR41-V2 4 port router with firewall

    I never had this kind of problem with my old rig I very rarely got connecton issues. I don't know much about routers and setting them up so is there something I am missing? Thanks for any help

    If you think it's a router/firewall issue, give this web site a try. They have an configuration utility that'll do your port forwarding rules for you (select the game, and you're good to go).

      Tried taking the router out of the equation? Does that motherboard have one NIC or two and, if two, have you tried the other?
