I have a brand new Gateway DX4380G-UW308. With Windows 8, uninstalled Norton, disabled firewall, opened all ports and turned router firewall off, literally tried everything it's been weeks ad still no luck connecting to any of the games I play. Can't play League of Legends, Path of Exile Steam, nothing. My friends laptop plays them all fine on my network so it must be the computer, but it's brand new without any other software to conflict with anything I don't get it. Please help me!
Thanks in advance!
It's Residential Internet, through Century Link 12 Mbps. This is my only internet connection besides tethering through my Verizon phone. But the internet shouldn't be the problem they work on other computers on the network.
even though I can connect to everything else fine?
Hmmm then I guess I was wrong.
Anyways as I mentioned before you will receive much better advice on the networking section regarding any connection issues. You can make a thread there and keep this thread open to get any advice you can.
Sorry but I'm only 15 and have very little experience in networking.
I always try my best to help though.
Good luck with your problem.
Maybe this can help (This won't change your router configurations , don't worry)
Not sure if this works on win 8 but it probably should.
1. Open the run command.
2. Type this exact same line in the run box - netsh int ip reset
3. Restart the computer.
4. Open run command again.
5. Type this exact same line - netsh winsock reset
6. Restart the computer again.
Now try connecting.
These are just some basic steps that I know but if this doesn't work then I really can't help you.
If you are wondering what they do then the first one resets the internet protocol (TCP/IP) and the second one resets your winsock entries.
