I've had the command the first decade set for a few months now, and decided to finally try C&C Generals zero hour online. I make an account and log in alright. Then I join a game room and in a couple of seconds I lose connection. The error message I get is lost connection to the game. This will just randomly happen from about 10 seconds to a minute.
I've tried downloading the latest patch for generals specifically, but it did not work. I figured this was from having the first decade set. Then I downloaded the patch for the first decade and it didn't fix my problem.
I also went to portforward.com and opened the 7 ports it told me to for my router, didn't help. Then I went into the dmz section of my router and turned off the firewall all together and this didn't fix it.
I play many games online such as Guild Wars, Warrock, Warcraft 3, and i never have connection troubles. The only program running in the background is xfire.
