I've just purchased a new computer a Gateway DX 4380G-UW308 with Windows 8. And I'm trying to play Path of Exile and a couple of other games and none of them can connect to the patching server or even recognize an internet connection. Although I have no problems getting on my web browser and downloading files.
I am only using Windows Firewall and Windows Defender. I've turned both off and fowarded all of the required port and turned off my routers firewall. Tried running as Admin. I've pretty much tried everything. My buddy brought his laptop over and could log into the games that I can't and had no problem playing them on my network (So I'm guessing my computer is the problem). And every once in a while it'll connect and log into the game client but when I try to log into a character it kicks me back out.
I've tried everything and I'm frustrated and desperate I have no clue what could be preventing me from reaching the servers. I've tried to traceroute and everything worked fine but the game client just can't connect.
Any help would be very much appreciated! Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions!
Btw, I'm new here so I apologize ahead of time if this is in the wrong section of the forum.
