Several months ago i used to regually play with a friend on CoH, everything was fine. However we didnt play for a while and now we cant connect to each other and lots of people cant connect to my game on the game lobby.
The only thing that has changed is that I've changed my router to a BT Homehub (I was still BT before and i dont think the speed of my broadband has changed). My friend says this would have changed my IP address and now we're 'incompatible' with each other. I also cannot ping him using MS CMD. However if we both log onto Hamachi i can ping him then but stilll not log into games together. I can talk to him via xfire msn etc and can also join servers hes on in different games such as BF2 but im still unable to ping him or play him on CoH.
Ive opened the various ports that are suggested, although im not sure im doing this correctly and have disabled all anti-spyware and firewalls. Ive also made new accounts and tried all of them.
Some people can connect to my games but very rarely.
Help would be greatly appreciated!
