Cant connect to game servers, torrents but can surf web

  1. Hi friends! I recently have had an issue where I can't connect to any game servers or torrents, but am able to surf the web and stream videos at full speed. I've troubleshooted many steps (reseting router, port forwarding, ip renew) and decided this is a matter that might need outside help to solve. I have a pretty good indication that it has to do with my current router configuration as to all pc's on the network having the same issue. Anyone have any suggestions or ideas? Any information requested will be quickly uploaded, thanks in advance <3

    I suspect you have the same AV product on all systems and that can easily control access in multiple ways. First look in your \windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file and inspect for any of your game servers. *IF* found, that's the reason why: Blocking occurs when the line in the hosts file reads

    Code:
     127.0.0.1     some.domain.name
