This is the 2nd time that I've notified you folks about blocked ports. They meaning Zenimax Online or Bethesda states it is my ISP or Internet Service provider or router thats doing this. I'm going to try & see if I can post what they sent me so that YOU folks can check out what is going on. I need help with this issue!!
ok this is on the Arris page so I'll go on there in a minute. But what are you to enter in as far as a description?? Is that just made up by me??? They also have boxes for "Inbound Port" and then "Target port" What's the difference ?? Does both boxes have to be filled out??? In other words can I leave the target port boxes blank and just use the Inbound ports???
Ok..... well I may have discovered the issue. I'm glad that it was not to complicated. But anyways on the firewall settings page, I guess all those boxes should be checked... well I was not marked on the last one. Which is to "Enable block fragmented IP packets". So I checked it & hit "apply." So we'll see what happens & if that doesn't do it , which I have a feeling it will, I can always go back & enter the port triggers. Thanks WiderMouthOpen lol
Description doesn't matter. Inbound port and target port are the same. Format is both. However looks like you solved it on your own. Good job.
Actually I didn't :( !! I was able to open the ports as instructed. I followed the instructions to the letter. However, when doing a port checker they will not open even after launching the game. I even disabled the router firewall & still to no avail. I also unplugged the router for about 10 min & then rechecked it again but nope I'm kinda afraid to reset to factory settings .......but that would be the only thing left to try.
Did you have a antivirus program or any kind of software firewall?
Also, can you show a screenshot of the port triggering rules?
Last, do you have a cell phone you try tethering to your PC to rule out ISP issues. It's possible one of those ports is used by the gateway for remote support or some other kind of application. If not, the other alternative would be to try bridging the gateway into modem only mode and see if that works.
