Hello, I figured out how to access my Modem. Its a Tecom from 2005 all in one, wireless modem and router. I am in france and am trying to enable it so that I can host Warcraft 3 games, I think I need to take down my firewall, but cannot figure out how to do it. Please help
alright i'm not using any routers or anything i'm on ethernet with a qwest modem i've disabled the firewall and put a static ip adress on but it doesn't seem anyone is joining, help would be greatly appreciated
I'm trying to host wc3 games going straight throught a modem, i'm using wifi, dsl, i've set up a static ip adress and i've tried turning the firewall off, even with these things Noone has been able to join my games, any suggestions?
A) Like someone said earlier stopping firewall is only the beginning, if you are going straight through a modem with an Ethernet connection and you have the ports in the option menu open and the firewall off then 'you should be set. If still something if wrong then make sure any mac crap is off and nothing could be filtering you Internet connection like and virus protection. You CAN NOT get viruses from Warcraft 3.
B) If you are going through a router before the modem than it is possible that there is nothing you can do because often routers have built in permanent firewall that is close to impossible to turn off. Try it though, look up your router online to fine how to access it's port options, it could be very simple of very hard. Mine has to be plugged into with a USB to access the ports settings but some can be accessed by wireless means. Try stuff.
