New Modem from my new ISP. Problems!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So my friend brought his PC over since we love to PvP in SC2 and WoW and laugh with eachother as we annihilate other players . Although for some wierd reason, when we tried to install WoW, it said it couldn't apply the patch because it couldn't authenticate due to a firewall or bad connection. His internet is connected, his windows firewall is off, etc, so that only leaves 2 culprits, since I can patch/download WoW/SC on my PC just fine. It's either the modem that's hooked to the router that's hooked to the computers, or just the router. We've had this setup before, but without the modem, so I'm guessing it's the modem.

I've checked the router's ports and firewall, but when I went to check the modem, there were no port forwarding options. Do Motorola modems come equipped with their own firewall? If so, I'm going to have to call my ISP.

Have you tried bypassing the router and hardwiring his PC to the modem to see if it still does it?

The Blizzard downloader downloads via TCP, but also uses the P2P protocol. Try forwarding the following ports: 3724, 1119, 4000, 6112-6114, and 6881-6999 for his network IP.

You shouldn't need to forward the ports on the modem itself, just the router.
