I have a Lynksis Router (non-wireless) and when i join Counterstrike and Battlefield 1942 games, i am unable to connect to them... It says "retrying 4 times, then says unable to connect"

Well... I have a pentium3 dell computer with a Gforce 4 so that is not the problem I don't think. The problem could be arising from my router. My internet does work with other games (ie. Warcraft).

By the way, my computer is networked with my brothers computer, but his computer isn't having any problems.

Help would be much appreciated and I know someone else had this issue awhile back.

Wouldn't be a problem with the router. I'm thinking it's your software settings. Actually, firewall settings. If you have a software firewall, tone down the settings or make sure it allows the games in question access to the 'net. Some games require more traffic in and out.

I have a Norton Anti-Virus auto protect thing, so that might be the problem, how would i be able to see if my firewall is on or not?
