Friend's WarCraft 3 doesn't work online

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

His WarCraft 3 won't work online

My friend, a member here at FPSB (Mango) has a problem with his copy of WarCraft 3 Frozen Throne. He's on a wireless. (On a PC not a Laptop) his friend is also playing the game but has no problems. (his friend is on cable) Any ideas?

    Might be the wireless. Wireless connections tend to come with firewalls, but most games that have online play tell you what port to set to allow on your router. Either that or his net is too slow and won't connect. Do you know the speed of his router?

    It might also be caused by a non-legal version, but if he has a legal version, then I don't know.

    Does he experience any other networking issues? Is he behind any firewalls? Is the game configured to work with the internet yet?

    More than likely some sort of firewall. I had to open up some ports so that I could host games on battlenet myself.

    Can he show a screenshot of what the error is? It might be caused by the different version.
