When I try and play Age of Empires II online my network goes offline and I have to reset the router to get it back on. I enter the IP of the game I'm joining, double click on the game I'm joining and I get in, but after 1 or 2 minutes in there I get disconnected. I have opened the port for the game on my router and firewall and I have the Windows Firewall disabled.

Anyone know what the problem is?

Cheers.

I play other games such as Call of Duty 2 and Medal of Honor Allied Assault online with no problems, internet stays on for me and the two other people on network, just thought I'd add this because it may help. Also, it's a wireless network. :whistling:

When I go offline I get these messages in Event Viewer:
