    what exactly is the problem? and what do u mean by online games? games from websites or multiplayer games like UT2004 and stuff like that? u usually dont have to open ports for playing games, only for hosting them

    do you mean that the gateway is connected to the client via USB, or do you mean the gateway is connected to the modem via usb.

    also, what firewall

    well what i meant by online games is MMORPGs which are software based like guildwars,lineage2,ragnarok online and world of warcraft.

    and the usb cable i meant is used to connect the client to the gateway not to the modem.

    ive tried closing the firewall for both the client and the gateway and the game still wont connect to its server to update, amazingly.. the game works fine on the gateway computer :(
