Routers and Firewalls can often be the cause of your game not connecting to other people, it may even cause C&C Games to crash or internal error. Not all connection problems can be attributed to firewall and router setup, so, this may just be one step in the ensuring your setup is good.

Below is a guide to setting up your firewall and router, this is a generic readme. However, if you have a diferent type of firewall or router, you should read your manufacturers documentation in the manual or on the manufacturers website.

If you are having problems finding the info, I recommend this friendly and helpfull site, try reading their router page to see if your hardware is listed, if not then you can post in their forums.

In the address bar ( where you type http://xwis.net/forums ) type "192.168.1.1" this will take you to a page that configures your router settings.

Pings

If you want your pings to show instead of being blocked and showing red/1000 all the time, you have to enable ICMP echo reply (ping) responses in your firewall.
