I have tried everything all over the internet. I turned off my firewall. I have change settings on so many things ,but now I have seen some one who has a simaler problem and he fixed it by port forwarding. BUT I have no idea how to! I ve tried some tutorials but they are for games I don't have.

If you are wondering I have manly call of duty games and have a 400G Billion Router.

Are you setting up a server for others to connect to?

yes,sometimes I set up a server,but no one ever connects to it AND it does not come up on internet ,only Local.But when i made the sever I set it to dedicated internet?Yet when i open "console" type "connect ' put in my ip address it connects

Also I am wondering if port forwarding is only for your own server.

One more thing no servers ever come up when I say "join game"> "Internet". So I go online to see if there are any people on I find some people online . Then I go back to the game and open "console" type "connect ' put in their ip address and press Enter it would say Awaiting Connection 1, 2 ,3 ect till it timed out or for some games go on forever!!!HElp me please I have tried to fix this for a very long time.

IT was my router firewall that was blocking the connections!!!I had to disable it and it was working and not only was it blocking the games but was also blocking steam,fire and gamespy arcade!!!!! P>S please repost because I see people are having problems with steam.
