Ok heres my situation. I always get the "not able to connect to cnc online message" SO here is my network status.

1. No I have never been able to play cnc online (But I have played plenty of other games online, Crysis, COD4 etc.)
2.There no recent PC config changes that are related to the internet.
3.I have visited my router config webpage (http://192.168.1.1) and I have check to make sure my ISP is not blocking access.
4. The only firewall I have is Windows firewall and I have tried playing cnc online with it off.
5. I am in a private LAN, not a university or office connection.
6. The only router I use is the modem/router that I received from verizon.

Ok heres a complete Sum of everything I've tried.

1. Disable firewall
2. Disabled antivirus
3. got rid of background tasks.
4. Opened all Necessary ports
5. Ran UOtrace (had packet loss)
6. Set up an Static IP
7. Use the TCP Optimizer with tweaks.

Here I have 3 questions.
1. I did some tests and it looks like I fail the OUTGOING connections. (I look I only lose packets for outgoing connections. (what can I do for this?)

2. I heard that to unblock fowarded ports, you have to disable DHCP. IS this true?

3. I'd like to host a DMZ but it won't work because my WAN IP is not connected. How can I connect it?

(im using a Westell 6100)

Im pretty sure the main problem is that I can't seem to establish an outgoing connection with master.gamespy.com and easo.ea.com.

Thanks I hope I can fix this So I can play the RA3 beta as well.

0. You want to play with strangers? Then online is the only way. Are you sure the server is up? Command & Conquer is an old game. Unless you mean version 3.

1. What did you use for testing?

2. Sort of. If your router allows you to reserve an IP for a device(pc), you can have DHCP on. Why? Cuz you can let friends/neighbors use your network when they're over. Just remember to reserver an IP for your pc & forward the ports to the pc.

3. You don't need DMZ for online gaming.

0. I meant cnc3, cnc3 kaneswrath, and RA3 beta ( have all three and have all same problems)
1. I used a system monitoring program thats in my router config webpage. Showed errors for outgoing packets when I was logging in (which is where I get the error message) But incoming packets were fine.

2. Reserve? how can I check if I have ip reserved. Well I have a static IP. And my router is a modem/router in router-bridge mode.

3. Still want to try it since I heard it may help.

2. If you have a static IP for the pc, don't worry about reserve.

3. Is that the only router you have? Anything else on the network? Firewall appliance? If this is your config:

[verizon modem/router]-[pc]

Then the router should be in non-bridge mode. Bridge lets you use another router to manage things or share connection.

Update your game. And ask these guys:

Lol looks like you can't help me either. I've looked in about 5 other forums and nope, nothing. Its the only router I have.
Whats a good program to check if my ports that I fowarded are ACTUALLY open?
Cuz I did a check and nothing was detected. maybe thats the problem.
