  1. i think the security features on my router keep killing my fifa 2006 online play
    im not playing behind a firewall but i think the problem are the features..what happens if turn them all off?

    Firewall Options

    Enable Hacker Attack Protect
    Discard PING from WAN side
    Unallow to PING the Gateway
    Drop Port Scan Packets
    Allow to Scan Security Port (113)
    Discard NetBios Packets
    Accept Fragment Packets
    Send ICMP packets when error

    Hacker Attack Patterns
    IP Spoofing
    Smurf Attack
    Ping of Death
    Land Attack
    Snork Attack
    UDP Port Loop
    TCP Null Scan
    Sync Flood
    packets per second
    Short Packet
    my pc has its own firewall..but which ones would most likely kill my fifa connection???

    None of those options even need to be enabled,unless your the sort of person who tends to get hacked a lot.
    Turn them off one by one,and see what happens.You have a software firewall,after all.

    Make sure you`ve configured the port forwarding on the router correctly - Tidy port forwarding

    Why mess with the settings?
    If you don't need internet for that game, just unplug the network cable and check if it works then.
