Can't connect to online gaming PC

Hello,

Since I got a new router (2704n) I've been unable to connect to online gaming using my PC. The only way is to tether to my mobile, that works perfectly but it's eating into my data.

 

Does anyone have an idea why the router is blocking online gaming? Battlegrounds and Doom are the two I'm currently playing that don't work.

Thanking in advance!

Warren

Fix

Only thing I can think of is look at the router firewall settings, you may to allow UPnP, I would suggest selecting default (top option) and checking UPnP enabled.

Just something to try. I've attached a PlusNet image I "borrowed" from the internet.

Let us know how you get on as there shouldn't be any issues with those games at all

That worked!

I had extended security enabled, as soon as it was disabled I could play online.

 

Thanks very much - far more helpful than the support number, I waited 30mins to be told they couldn't do anything.
