Bought a new router: Can't Play Diablo anymore. How do i fix this? Link Inside.

I thought this would be the most helpful forum on how to fix this router issue.

Who should I contact regarding the configuration of my firewall, proxy, or router?
Blizzard does not support proxies (Internet connection sharing), firewalls, or routers. The settings provided are suggested settings only. However, we do have some suggested settings for BlackICE, ZoneAlarm® Pro, Sygate Personal Firewall Pro, and Windows XP's Internet Connection Firewall.

You may need to contact your ISP or network administrator for assistance if you have opened the correct ports but still cannot connect or get others connected to you.

What do I need to know about ports?
Anytime your computer receives incoming data, it is sent to a "port". Your computer has many ports that can receive data, and different activities will utilize different ports.

How are ports being restricted?
Most proxy servers, firewalls, and other Internet connection sharing methods can restrict port access. Your configuration may be restricting packets from "unknown sources". In this case an "unknown source" would be defined as any IP address that you have not initiated the contact with. Once you contact the IP address, your proxy and/or firewall considers it "safe", or a "known source", since you initiated the contact. When you create a game on Battle.net, other users need to be able to contact you in order to join. In other words, they need to be able to initiate the contact. This becomes the real problem if your connection is restricting them from contacting you.

What ports are required and with what settings?
In order to connect to Battle.net, through your Local Area Network, while allowing others to connect to games you create, make sure you have the following ports setup as described below.

Diablo, Warcraft II Battle.net Edition, and StarCraft:

* Allow port 6112-6119 TCP and UDP out and in

Diablo II:

* Allow port 6112 TCP out and allow established sessions in
* Allow port 4000 TCP out (realm games)
* Allow port 4000 TCP out and in (hosting open games only)

Warcraft III:

* Allow port 6112 TCP out and allow established sessions in
* Allow port 6112 TCP in (hosting custom games)
* Allow port 6113-6119 TCP out and in (hosting custom games if you’ve changed the default port in the Options/Gameplay screen)

World of Warcraft:

* Allow port 3724 TCP out
* Allow port 3724 TCP in

Notes:

* "Established sessions in" applies to firewalls only. NAT will allow the "established sessions in" automatically.
* NAT users will need to map any "in"s (hosting games only) to the IP of the computer hosting the game.
* Warcraft III is the only Blizzard Title that currently supports multiple players hosting games behind NAT.

What do I do if I am still having problems connecting using a firewall, router, or proxy?
If you need further help configuring your firewall, router, or proxy you will need to contact the manufacturer for assistance.

There is also a third party site (http://www.portforward.com) which may provide help on how to forward the ports on your router.
I have DS-Link like 2.4 GHZ for my router. I tried following them but didnt work any ideas?

well first off this is the wrong forum. Anything nonblizzard related goes here.

And you need to describe your problem more clearly. Are you unable to connect to bnet? Or is it very laggy and you get disconnected often?

If you're playing your "game" on the closed realms, you don't need to open any ports. In fact, in my case, having port 6112 open made my crowbar very laggy.

I have to disagree with this. While he did mention "that" game, the discussion is about router issues.

I have no problem keeping this thread open so long as the discussion doesn't digress to talking Diablo or porn.

Beer maybe....or pant theft, but no Diablo or porn. :)

My avatar is one of the older versions of the one Dracoy uses. We have been confused before.


I would be glad to help, if I actually knew the problem.
