Upon further investigating this, it looks like the problem is indeed with the modem/router ports being closed.
Funny enough the modem's web interface only gives an about report, and all the rest is disabled. It seems this interface allows for setting up port forwarding but the feature is by default disabled by the ISP.
I think I'm on the right track and asked them to please enable local port control on the modem/ router(by flashing it remotely?).
Hopefully this should allow me to open ports locally from my machine and get specific games to work by changing setup options?
Let's hope they are willing to be helpful since I'm particularly not happy with the fact of owning a modem whose ports I cannot open and close as I please at my own risk.
This of course being careful and all since I do have some net knowledge just never had cable Internet at home before.
I consistently get assigned class C public addresses. At the moment I have the usual 196.46.xx.xx address assigned.
After communicating with tech support someone informed me that it's possible to have local control over modem setup, including port forwarding. I've since asked the isp for this feature to be enabled remotely.
I don't understand what you mean, since I can't get my Blizzard games to connect to the gaming server. Would this not happen if the gaming ports were cosed in the modem/router?
Might have to ask for permission to run tracert from here as well since it isn't possible to do so at present.
