recently i changed ISP and they gave me a new router. Thomson TG782T.
i used to be able to play Supreme Commander:FA without any problems but since i got this router i am getting "nil" connections to some ppl and i cant play against them.
i thought it might be a problem with ports so i went to www.portforward.com and followed the instructions of a different router (Thomson TG797) that is very similar to mine, since there was no instructions for my specific router.
i made myself a static IP and then
i opened ports for 6112 9103 and 30350 - 30351
i also downloaded the port checking tool from the same website which is apparently very accurate.
after i open up the ports i used the port checking tool and it confirms that each of the ports are open.
however 2mins later they are all closed again.
and at the same time that this happens, the list of ports that my router homepage shows as open suddenly shows a message saying "No port maps defined for this game or application." where originally it would show the list of ports that ive opened.
it just seems to auto close them for some reason
ive tried doing all of this with my norton internet security firewall disabled. but i get the same results
Please does anyone know what im doing wrong
