I play a game or two on GameSpy Arcade, or at least I did. A while back, I downloaded Agnitum Firewall and got aggravated because it kept blocking everything, so I deleted it. The only problem is, I think that it modified something and I'm not exactly sure what it did. Before, I could play games on GameSpy just fine, but since trying after deleting that firewall, I keep getting an error message that my Internal and External IPs are different and I can't connect to anything else to play a game. I read somewhere else that it might be the DSL router, but I remember that it worked just fine before. I'm pretty sure it only started after I got that stupid firewall.

Anyway, thanks for your time.

Solved

I found the problem. Turns out it was with my router after all, but I found a way to open the ports I needed to play my games, so I'm good after all. Thanks for replying though.

It's good practice to only run ONE firewall on a system. If your router includes one, and most do, then don't install one on the connected PC.
