    Hello, I am able to browse the internet using IE, however am not able to log into X-Fire, MSN, Ventrilo, or Multiplayer games.
    I was connected to DSL at my old house and it worked just fine, but as soon as I arrived here and hooked up to Cable I haven't been able to do any of the previously mentioned actions.

    I have googled, and searched various tech forums to no avail.

    http://www.computing.net/answers/gaming/cannot-connect-to-servers/9092.html
    seems to closely resemble what I am expieriencing. I have tried everything mentioned in that topic with no positive results. I do not have PeerGuardian or ZoneAlarm or any of the like.
    I have completely disabled Windows Firewall but that didn't work. I have made exceptions on the firewall, and virus protection with no positive results. Please, any thoughts, ideas, suggestions, advice, or anything else...post



    here is my setup...
    wall--->modem--->laptop
    neither wired/wireless works properly the modem is a Motorola SBG900


    Just another thing to add...I have the same problem when I ran Windows XP in VMWare with no Firewall or any type of protection whatsoever.

    I believe it's something with the IP, maybe when I moved things are trying to read the old IP maybe? This is VERY frustrating
    ANY suggestions PLEASE!

    I have tried doing winsock and such...with nothing
