The way to tell that it is the router would be to directly connect to your
internet connection through the DSL/Cable modem, and attempt to connect. If you
connect without issue then there is a setting in your router that is causing
this issue, and I would recommend you contact your router manufacturer. If you
are still unable to connect, then I would contact Gamespy, as it is there
software that is being used to connect.

this is just funny after exsplaining to them what exactly is going on they blame the router

Seems pretty clear to me.

It says to STOP using the router, connect the PC directly to the broadband modem (-NOTE- you will need to power cycle your modem in some cases, and reboot your PC in most cases to get connectivity after removing the router and connecting direct). Make sure you can connect to the internet and then start the game. IF the game can connect, then the router is the problem. Contact your router manufacturer to either help you open the necessary ports, or whatever else needs done.

If, after removing the router, you still cant connect, then you need to contact Gamespy, as it is their software that handles all of the connecting and multiplayer aspects of the game, aside from the actual gameplay itself.

y would u connect the PC directly to the modem? that defeats the purpose of getting a router in the first place

It's only to test the connectivity. If you connect with no problem by connecting directly to the modem, then the problem is the router.

It's called troubleshooting.
