  1. I am trying to play Rise of Nations online. I can play a solo game without a problem, but am unable to connect to online games. I think the problem may be that my external IP address can't be pinged (externally). I have a Linksys WRT160 router, Comcast is my internet provider, and I have set up Port Range Forwarding on the Gaming tab of the router, but so far, that hasn't worked. Any ideas?

    What about your firewall you use on your PC? Have you open the ports for what you need to use?

    I have Rise of Nations checked to be an Allowed Program or Feature on the Windows firewall. I don't see where to open the ports there, though.
