    I like to play Command and Conquer Zero Hour
    I bought the D Link 4300 because it claimed to be great for games and
    even listed Command and Conquer Zero hour in its advertising materials.
    I believe they even had the C&C logo on the box. Sometimes the Router
    will work for 1 v 1 games but it never works if I have more than one
    person on my LAN trying to play with me. My old Linksys model BEFSR41
    could do this with no problem and it is almost 5 years old and didn't
    claim to be extra good at games. I'm rather annoyed that I payed 3
    times as much for a "gaming" router that claims to be good for C&C and
    it doesn't even work as advertised. The most current firmware update
    doesn't solve the problem and their help pages are extremely unhelpful.
    Does anyone have any advice on how to fix my D Link 4300 so that 2 or
    more players on my LAN can connect to an online C&C Zero Hour
    multiplayer game?

    Lets look at the name of this newsgroup. It starts off with Microsoft
    so Microsoft products must be on topic while other hardware is off
    topic. Then it says public meaning any moron with an Internet
    connection can post. Then it says broadbandnet which must mean
    Microsoft's broadband networking stuff. Last but not least it says
    hardware, so this newsgroup must really talk about the Microsoft
    Broadband Networking hardware & thus it is not a general networking
    newsgroup.

    Pay attention to where you post & don't post the same problem twice in a
    row with so little time between posts. Your problem is with either
    Windows, a setting in your router, or something to do with your game.
    You should post in a newsgroup for one or more of the following a
    general networking newsgroup, one that supports your hardware, one that
    supports your version of Windows, or one that supports your game.

    I bet you just need to enter some settings into your router that you
    haven't. One last resource for you as I'm in a good mood today is the
    following link.

    If your question is worth asking, it's worth posting.

    If it’s not worth posting you should have done a search on
    http://www.google.com/ http://www.google.com/grphp?hl=en&tab=wg&q= or
    http://news.google.com/froogle?hl=en&tab=nf&ned=us&q= before wasting our
    time.

    If I sound hostile or arrogant you need to read the following before
    posting a question "How To Ask Questions The Smart Way" at
    http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html (The site I've linked
    to just has this article I think people should read before posting a
    technical question.)

    A common mistake that people make when trying to design something
    completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.
