Recently, I experienced a problem where I am able to go on Internet Explorer and surf the internet but I am unable to connect to any of my online games. I've tried to connect to games like Black Ops 2, Continent of the Ninth Seal, League of Legends and Tribes Ascend, but all of them pop up with errors saying I am unable to connect to their servers. I've tested this issue on two computers, so I highly doubt it is a hardware issue. Before this happened on both my computers, my computers said that they had detected a "new" network and asked me to set it as "home," "work," or "public," and I chose the "home" option. But I've been using the same network and computers for years.

UPnP is already enabled, it still doesn't work.

Edit: If I directly connect my computer to the modem I can connect fine, so it seems to be a router problem. What could it be?

Alright, so after months of testing I give up. It works perfectly fine if I connect my computer directly to the modem, however if i have a router in between, it won't let me connect to any game servers.

Oh I have logged in to tom after months sorry bro yes actually when you connect a router in between direct ethernet cable then you need to open the port in your router while if you connect directly all ports are open by default.
All you need to do is open this page in browser 192.168.0.1 there you will find an option of port forwarding first you need to know your local ip address of your pc and between router for that open cmd and type ipconfig it will display you r local ip then in port forwarding option enter you local ip and port that you want to forward for particular game port varies so just google for that game that which port is req to be opened.

P.S now myself have a direct ethernet plan and I use router to use wifi. Cheers!

The problem its that you install a program and the proxy settings changed


to fix it you need to reset the setting
to reset your proxy settings yourself, follow these steps:

On Windows XP, click Start, or on Windows Vista or Windows 7, click the windows buttom, and then click Run.
In the Run text box, copy (CTRL+C) and paste (CTRL+V) or type the following:
reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings" /v ProxyEnable /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
Click OK.
And again On Windows XP, click Start , or on Windows Vista or Windows 7, click the windows buttom, and then click Run.
In the Run text box, copy (CTRL+C) and paste (CTRL+V) or type the following:
reg delete "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings" /v ProxyServer /f
Click OK.
