online games problems on broadband

  fribble 06:54 09 Jan 2004

Since changing from dialup(freeserve) to adsl(tiscali) I cant play any of my games online.I can see the servers the numbers of players and room names etc but when I try to join agame it never connects.
Even simple java games on websites just dont happen.
Nothing has been changed on my pc (firewall settings etc) and the firewall(agnitum outpost) dosent seem to be the problem as disabling it has no effect.
I'm baffled and gutted as online gaming is the thing I went bb for.
Thanks in advance for any help

Just check that the Microsoft firewall is OFF as this can cause some problems. Are you connecting to the Internet via an ADSL modem or some sort of router ?

I'm connected via the free sagem usb modem supplied by tiscali and windows firewall is off still no joy
