Hi, I want to setup my computer so I can host games in WC3. To do this, I first need to setup a static IP and open ports for the game. I've done this before on XP SP 2, now I have XP SP 3 and something is different - namely when I go to Start>Run>'cmd'>'ipconfig /all' to find out what are my DNS servers, the field says:
DNS Servers..............
whereas on SP 2 it went something along the lines of this one:
DNS Servers..............85.255.xx.xx, 85.255.xx.xx+1
The guide at portforward.com, which I used the first time, also shows you screenshots of how to get the data you require, and on one of them I've noticed that 'DHCP' value is set to 'No'. In my case, 'DHCP' is 'Yes'.
I hope that this will be easy to solve, since my baby brother is aching to host WC3 games.:-)

Well, it sounds like now your internet is through a router, but before is wasn't. If you haven't changed this then a setting was changed.

Have you tried unblocking ports on your router, by going directly through the router? To get to your router you should type into your browser. If it asks for a username or password, try admin as password or try it as the username, or for both if it doesn't work. Portforward.com should have instructions on what to do form there.
