Mmm.I wonder if this is the issue......are you able to connect if you turn off Webroot, but turn on Windows Firewall?

Haha, thanks for the help, it is always the simplest of things xD. Turns out Webroot is the source of the problem, so just gonna get AVG for it instead. Thanks for all your help, despite me making things a lot more complicated then they should have been ^^

Thats quite OK - glad to help.

Windows Firewall is actually more than adequate of serving the average user's needs. I would consider using that in preference to AVG or anything else for that matter, unless you have specifically indentified a need for them.
