Can't host WC3

Hello Everyone,
I have tried to all of the known fixes to allow you to host i WarCraft III, like port forwarding, opening ports, turning off firewalls, etc. Nothing works. I have done a traceroute and was hoping some one could translate it in to English for me. Well I'll paste it here, Thanks for any help any one can provide!

Recently I switched my ISP from Rogers to Aliant. My hosting stopped working. D:

So, I go through my router, set the right ports, check my firewall, the exceptions are in good order. I find out while I'm doing all this that my computer had accidentally been hooking to the internet without the router for a little while, so I don't think my problem lies there.

Sadly, nothing seems to work. Is there something I'm missing? Again, my router and windows firewall are set up properly, as I've done this process successfully many times in the past.

Yep, I'm using a static IP. I'm totally lost as to what the problem may be.

HI, thanks for the guide, but I have a problem.

I am using 2 routers together for my computer, and when I tried to configure the second one, I cannot access it in my browser because the other one takes precedence. Is there a way to get around this?

Thanks

i am not able to connect to battle.net...whenever i try it always says, "Unable to connect to battle.net. you may be trying to connect to an invalid server. if you are using a modem you may need to manually connect to the internet before connecting to battle.net"


what does that mean??

i still have trouble hosting

i did open all the port, but i still can not host. and you said
"Do you have multiple computers using the same external IP address (LAN)?
You must use ports consecutively to allow this to work.
For example: You have internal IPs of 168.192.1.100 and 168.192.1.101.
The first IP 168.192.1.100 would need port 6112, the next IP 168.192.1.101 would need port 6113. "

i am having more then 6 computer in my family, does it mean i need to allow port on all of them????

also what do you mean by test it? i do not know how to test. the reason i know i can not host is that after i creat a game for 10 mins, no one ever joined....


help help please


thx

yeah you need to open a port for each computer you want to play on, and give it the specific

and Some ISP's dosn't support ports so you might not have one, can you create without a router?? like with dirrect internet from modem/hole in the wall.

this website is a little better for learning how to open ports

yeah you need to open the port for the computer you want to play on.

the link is a free guide you can follow, pick your router then pick Wc3 then it helps you .. no fee's.

and could you create if you made a connection directly from you modem/hole in the wall, into your computer?? without the router?

    I didn't get any phone service plans because I am mainly visiting my family and staying indoors. Well, the earthquake made me forgot to go get phone service.

    Yeah, the whole earthquake + air pollution combo made me completely forget about bringing updates. I'll be sure to keep on top of things after all things are less requiring my attentions.
