i cant connect to any game servers need mucho help!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
okay so i got time warner cable and its pretty fast when i surf the net and i can dl games from Steam at 400 Kbps average but for some reason i can't connect to any game servers like on CSS or even 1.6. i tried by directly connecting to the router but its the same and i really wanna play cs! im like getting withdrawals from not playing =D. my friend told me that i have to connect to my modem using the IP addresss default gateway and make my account settings on the modem then open all the ports for gaming cause he said it might be closed for gaming or w/e. will this work? and it appears that time warner already made one cause it keeps asking for the account name and i only know that password so are therer any other suggestions you ppl might have before i call time warner and be stuck on hold for an hour to ask them?

To open ports try this site PortForward

Have you tried connecting directly by bypassing the router and plugging the pc directly into the cable modem?
