Cant connect to any game servers

Specs: Windows XP
Hi everybody,

I've had this problem for a while. Every MMO I've tried always gives me the message "Can't connect to server" or something like that. I used to be able to play about a year back, but then suddenly, everything stopped working. I've tried multiple games, nothing works. Every couple of months, it would connect for a day or two, but just stops working again after. :/

Any ideas? I'd appreciate any help. Searching other help sites have helped none.

PS: I use Windows XP and avast antivirus.
I've turned windows firewall off and it still doesn't work. I had this problem before installing avast, but uninstalling/turning firewall off still doesn't help.
Everything else works great, I can surf the internet just fine. The one other problem is that I can't connect to IRC either when the MMO's don't work.

If all firewalls are disabled and all anti-something disabled, then it could be that your computer or ISP is just not allowing the connection. If you could find from those companies some of their testing IPs, see if you can do a simple ping command to them from the Command Prompt (with all stuff disabled still).


See if it connects or fails. You can even do this with sites to see what it looks like when executed:


If you fail to ping to the game servers, see if your ISP is blocking them.

I reply as fast as I can but could be hours or months.
