last time i cryed was because i stood on Lego
find your router
i do it by typing 192.168.1.1 into my web browser
then i mess around with those settings
last time i cryed was because i stood on Lego
my router NEtgear doesn't show anything neither...
I am getting pissed off because the community is alive I have few time to play and rooms are available but i cannot solve this shit problem.
It was the same problem in another city with the same PC but at the time I had XP professional. When i opened the doors there it was working a little better. Here is anotherstory... my pc goes through cable to a wifi router line extender to the main router ... and both PORT FORWARDING are not available. They have not been created as setttings on these routers.. I will give them a call.
TO NETGEAR AND my provider...
Now i Have WINDOWS 7 ... i don't really know what to do. Who did this game ? What the hell... now is unbearable. It's not my provider ... it's more things summed together.
----- now i have just updated the firmware of the netgear extender router... let's see...
Yes i went in my main router too like you say ...
To do it I have to pay. My provider doesn't offer help for getting into the setting mode without paying. Incredible... I won't pay I will find the way on my own.
My ip is already static.
Is it correct like this ? (i understand it is not enough it I have a router in the middle wich I must open from here too with other rules)
WHAT IS AN OVERRIDE OF IP that is explained in the second link below ? Can you explain me please ?
Again and again I tried with all the things Windows firewall down, windows defender down, private antivirus firewall software down, creating ports on my router for my ip, nothing!!!!
Even with the file User.cfg it doesn't work I can see probably i don't position it in the right place but that option doesn't work.
I opened the doors. The rooms do not open. I do not know what to do.
Really after 2006 when I bought this game no solutions found! This is really a shit situation.
In the mean while here other ISSUE walk through:

Here too very interesting. http://www.ageofempires.com/Forums/yaf_ ... x#post1162
I am moving tonight to another provider to move to 20 mbps for the same price forever.
Back to TOPIC:
Answer 2 - you are right I need to be connected via cable directly but the connection is not close in my case, I need 40 meters.
I am actually connected via electricity at the moment you know those Dlink hardwares that doubles the connection...
So now I have changed the connection not anymore like before: PC cable router wifi Router TELECOM LINE .
My house is built like this so it is difficult to connect with a computer directly.
Answer 2: to Marco1698
Eso ports doesn't mean anything. ESO doesn't exist on the computer and if it does, then you need to explain how to find it.
Protocol cannot be changed it is either 6 or 17 and only the port can't be changed. It looks somebody doesn't know what he's talking about. This is or me or you Marco 1698. Sorry but I like to be clear and understand. This is about playing or not playing it's not about Art.
FACT 1: Sunday night my Router burned.
I have done this by playing with the doors or a bolt from a thunderstorm on sunday burn in my router from Telecom so now I had to buy another one even if tonight i am changing to a broader band and I will have a new router from the new ISP (the best rated for price and also performance in my region) ... whatever.
I discovered another thing! It can change everything:
NOT ONLY traffic to AGE III must be allowed Agey.exe but also to the Patcher(y) must be allowed! The patcher exe loads everytime we access ESO servers. So I think that if we do not unblock also this it can create problems!
I always didn't read this because by routine or reading not well the Microsoft Troubleshooting it didn't come out from the text clearly as a solution...
I understand the story about the Static ip but we do not have static IP unless we have a Business corporate contracts.
In the settings to be changed there is UpnP ok, that I don't know how to change on Win7 (I know instead on XP).
After all this I don't know if this game will work, because a Phase one of trys was put in place for 3 days until sunday, until I lost access to the internet, therefor the silence on the forums ... anyway I am really upset but still neutral with my mood.
I own it since 2006 and I managed to play somehow anyway, but it did not always work. Anyway this is the only problem I have with games and computers, I don't have others.
I can understand this can be given by the fact I can't change the settings or I don't do it correctly. But there is nobody now that uses Windows 7, has a shit computer configuration like me, he has all the 3 games installed Age III WC and TAD, that is connected via router and that can tell clearly WHAT TO DO on Operating System, on Firewalls, on Game Folders, on Router settings ?
It's incredible, with a thousand community player environment nobody really knows, this instead makes me doubtful on human evolution and interest to share solution, because I am sure somebody knows and knows how to write explain. Will you help more ?
Anyway I am deeply grateful for the help so far!
If I update the computer the new operating system or settings might not be compatible with Age. (tried to play age on another computer or a XP PRO pc and it doesn't work).
So the solution really looks difficult. I actually have to try now if it works since I've opened the doors on a DLINK router I have changed now and I haven't so far checked the functioning or not of the game online rooms.
I noted this: the Antivirusinternet protection software that I ve installed in my computer even if it is a basic protection is so strong that blocks the game. Once I suspend it it works.
Of course I might be vulnerable if I did not had other protections and tracing option open but I suggest for those who want to solve this horrible issue I managed to solve with a lot of work, to work, dear guys, on more paths not just on the router one, or on windows firewall exceptions.
You need a thorough work (on settings mentioned above in the previous posts) to make AGE III access the internet.
One thing that mostly gets unchecked is as I suggested above the AGEPATCHER.exe program that must be insert in the exceptions too. Don't forget.
It was since 2006 I could not open all the rooms and now this is possible. So it is easy to play and not annoying.
Ciao! Have fun.
In honor of this I won a game with a player I never met before with which we did a team game against a clan other two players. OH YEAH
Enjoy the day
Were you unable to connect to ESO at all or you just couldn't host/join games?
i know your pain
If found out just now why. Solving a problem is a way to become expert of something. My router switched my IPv4 : I have now another address. That's why the rule about the ports open was not valid anymore !
Plus ... avast free antivirus and firewall was to heavy. I took it out totally from my computer ... but this is another story.
By the way, I just found out your last 2 messages. It's nice you know to see somebody reads and writes a message. It's really boring.
Anyway I believe now that I am going to relaunch the game in 1 minute after i finish writing this post it will work. It's the router that switched the ip of my computer and so the rule was not valid anymore.
@inornus ... yes could not join any game that is always been the problem. Conntecting... after 8 seconds .. failed to join game.
But I believe i just found out why it happened AGAIN after I solved.
