It would help if you told us what error messages if any you get when you try to play these games online.

also it's unnecessary to make a new thread about this every day.

Right click the McAfee icon in the taskbar and choose the correct command from the drop down menu.

hes messing with you, okay heres an idea, lets see if this works.

start > search for "run" > in the text box type cmd> a dos window will open type ipconfig/release > when it stops type ipconfig/renew, wait until its done. then see if u can connect to your games, if its still wont pm me for other possible solutions, such as your firewall is blocking them.

To disable your firewall. That way we can see if McAfee is causing it.

Turn off your firewall, dude. That's what is stopping you.

Have you turned off windows firewall, it still runs as well as the Mc afee one on vista. It's settings can be found in the control panel.

how about he skips messing with his router and simply efaults it again? by holding down the reset button at the back for about 30 seconds. it would lower any protection you had previously up but its clear your router is blocking ports and it varies as to which ones u need open for various titles and its pointless to go hunting for port addresses everytime u want to play a new game XD. so yeah at the back is a little hole with (normally) a red buton inside it, simply hold i down for about 25-30 seconds and the router defaults all its settings (which is no port forwarding or closing, SSID broadcast on (if wireless), no wpa/wep key, no dmz, firewall up)
