Prior to the router i was able to find game servers (namely Counter-Strike) with no problem.
Now, when i refresh or try to retrieve a new server list, i only get a few servers (between 10 - 300) all displaying pings greater than 1000.
However, when i put those servers in my favorites, and refresh the favorites list a few times it shows me the true ping of my "favorited" servers.
However, when i'm connected to a server (assuming i've connected to one that actually has good ping), the ping is perfectly fine.
The same thing happens with the Battle Field 2 demo except that thanks to the "wonderful" interface, there is no such thing as favorites or bookmarked servers.
I'm guessing that it might be a port forwarding issue (?) but none of the people i know who run behind a router have had issues retrieving server lists and did not need to port forward.
Your kind help is much appreciated!
