d-link 2640u disconnects from online gaming

Post by mcagris » Mon Dec 28, 2009 10:53 pm

:( Device Info

BoardID: DSL-2640U
Software Version: RU_1.22
Bootloader (CFE) Version: 1.0.37-12.1
Release Date: Wed Sep 2 15:36:18 CST 2009
Wireless Driver Version: 4.170.16.0.cpe2.1sd1

There is no problem for browsing over web. But whenever I connect to battlenet for playing online games ike warcraft 3, I got disconnected randomly from server. It does not change whether I host a game via virtual server or not. Even I am disconnected from games I entered. This happens randomly sometime 10 minutes later sometimes 1 minutes. I do not get ping while I am online after some minutes past.

I have updated firmware to 1.22 from 1.00, did not solve the problem. I canot find firewall option for this modem if exists, I have loaded settings via cd and it didnot ask for firewall.

Do you have a software firewall running?

That could be causing your problem.

Put your PC into the DMZ in your router, this will exclude your router firewall from protecting/blocking your PC to the outside world! you will be open to all threats, but will rule out if its the router or your PC causing the problem :wink:
