Actually your wrong, My job title is Network Manager.
I have no ports blocked, no firewall, i disabled access protection and buffer over runs and even the on access scanner just incase that caused the issue.
Also my service provider does not block ports or offer firewall protection for its customers. And considering this is not my 1st MMO or online game this is the 1st time ever I had struggled to get anything working which requires internet connection. This is why I am furious over this not working.
In today's day and age it should work and if the system has issues on 10% of its users then frankly they should re-do it. I am using XP because 7 is yet to be compatible with everything, I didnt upgrade to vista well dont even need to say why. Usually issues are caused with simple things which is why I never customise my home PC in any way or upgrade it every year just so it then works and stays working and has little trouble.
If my velocity starts to make you sweat, then just don't
