Team Fortress 2 fails to connect through router

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I was playing Team Fortress 2 happily one night and then suddenly I could not connect with the loading bar stuck at 'parsing game info' or giving me 'connection failed after 4 tries'. I have an Edimax BR-2662n wireless router. I connect using an ethernet cable. I have forwarded the ports 27000-27050 for both TCP/UDP. Team Fortress 2 can however connect if I connect directly to the modem.

Have you tried backing up your router settings, then resetting your router to factory defaults?

You don't need to forward ports to access game servers on the internet.

As stated above, it may be worth an attempt to reset the router to factory defaults and re-establish your configuration.

It didn't work. I even tried switching the ethernet ports around and unplugging everything else.
