It depends on the game and the router.

Linksys can be the most problematic. I have had to access the port forwarding options for many programs, not just games.

Most good online games will have a tech support FAQ such as Blizzards click here And some manufacturers of Routers do the same

sry last link won't work but it was over-egging the pudding. It was Linksys' knowledge base for Port configuration for D2.

Advise game and router and more help can be given.

I have a folder called webdownloads, within which is a folder called Zonearlarm.

In it I have every ZA Dl from zapSETUP_37_159.exe through to last weeks zapSETUP_50_590_015.exe.

There are 4 versions of 4.5!

Personally if I were to revert I would just add/remove ZA via control panel and just install a previous version.

However, I serached the ZA site and finally found their History page. click here You can DL older versions if you look carefully.
