Windows 7: Test Drive Unlimited - can't connect to the game server

Test Drive Unlimited - can't connect to the game server


First of all, since this is my first post, i'd like to say hi to everyone

Now a little bit about the problem i have.

I've got two retail copies of Test Drive Unlimited, first one is the old one and the second one is the one with car megapack.

Anyway, game works great, wheel also, the only thing that fails is multiplayer.

I can create an GS account but ALWAYS when i login i get an information about server beeing non avaliable.

I have a router, i tried forwarding the ports but it was the same. I disabled my firewall, uninstalled any application that may have caused this, but it still doesn't work.

Im trying to connect since two months, im kinda desperate right now. Everything was working fine on Vista and XP.

Does anyone have similiar problem? Is there any fix?

Kind regards

Is your IP static?
Run command promt (Windows button + R ) and type "CMD"
Then type ipconfig and see if your IPv4 address is the same as your default gateway,if it is you have to make your ip static.

Its a common fault when people port forward,i should know..i done it too:)

My IPV4 adress is not the same as my default gateway and it will not be, becuase im using a router.

MY router IP is, IP adresses are assigned from but it's ussualy 101/102/103.

I've redirected the ports in NAT to my machine, so all necessary ports for TDU are opened and redirected.

My Internet IP is not static, im using ADSL connection (got diff IP everytime i reconnect) also my when i restart the router i need to edit the redirect IP manually.

Is there anything else i can to?

This is suppose to be a new game, it looks like its 10 years old. Yet the game thinks its crysis or something, my Pc is pretty decent and i get frame rate drops or stutters. The driving physics are horrendous and give zero sensation of actually driving a car, even on my G27 wheel. The sound is...
