Router "Restarts" Playing Game

Hello
So today i went to go download a Game (Wolfenstien Enemy Territory) it downloaded fine but then after i installed it and went to go play it and then i noticed no servers were coming up (its a online only game) then i noticed my router had restarted.

So i went to go try Counter Strike Source and it works fine.

The Router is a Dlink DIR-615 (rev E3) on FW 5.10 its not even a year old i Purchased it 8/14/11

Thanks Matt

Hello,

We are all volunteers here and we offer help whenever we can.

Regarding your issue, you might have to do port-forwarding. Please visit portforward.com to locate your router and the game's Port Numbers. Here is an example that I found but this Tutorial applies for a Netgear router, but it should be similar and also it will give you all the Ports that you will need to port-forward.

Please give us an update.

No problem at all Zeldan. Glad to hear that replacing your router resolved your issue.
