Well, I don't have much info on this, but when I try to log into games it wont work.
I don't think it is my firewall, cause i've not been near it at all.

I can connect to MSN, and other places in my brower, but not online browser based games.

I tried to log into Byond games, but it didn't work and I was thinkin' : I guess it's a bug.
Then, I tried to log into steam and it didn't work.

I finally understood that it was somethin' wrong when I tried to log into World of Warcraft, but it didn't work.

Some ideas what this could be ?

Thanks in advance :whistling:

Are you on dialup? If so you dont need a firewall, I would disable it. If your on cable or DSL you could probally disable your firewall to see if you can login. I play EQ and my firewall will sometimes prompt me when there has been a patch and it wont allow me to login. I just tell it to allow the game and it lets me connect.

If your looking for a firewall here is a link to many and reviews for them. I use Sygate personal firewall but its no longer avail.
