I have just downloaded the online game Gunz. I am able to connect and join a game but when I do, everyone is standing still, all ping is 999 and it says Agent Not Available. I have been told that port forwarding will solve my problem but i dont know how to do it. I am running Windows XP and i have a NetGear WGT624 v2 wireless router and am using Comcast High Speed Internet. I am directly running through the router and not running wirelessly. If anyone has any help for me it would be appriciated.


Thanks

First, you need to know which port you need to forward. I'm not familiar with Gunz, so I don't know which port you need. Then you need to know if it's a TCP or UDP port, which you'll probably find out when you find which port you need to forward. Then you need to know your computer's IP address on your network. You can get this by clicking the Start button, then clicking Control Panel. In there, go to Network Connections, then click ONCE on Local Area Connection. In the little frame on the left, under details, it will tell you your computer's IP address.

After you get all this information, you need to go into your router's setup and find where you can set up your ports to be forwarded. This is different for almost every router out there, and I have no experience with Netgear routers. Sometimes it says "Port Forwarding" or "Port Mapping". You put the information you gathered above into the appropriate spaces, and it should work.
