I've been working all day to get my router(s) to forward port 10308, and it finallly worked: I can host my own mp-game (new server).
Now, if I have Skype or TS3 open, the second I press start to begin my selected mp-mission/session, I get disconnected from the internet. Completely. The game still runs and takes me to the loadout screen. If I close skype/TS3, I have no problems hosting.
I've read alot about Skype disconnecting at random, so I've tried all kinds of fixes with no luck. Then, installed TS3 and same problem is still there. It's not a firewall issue, at least with W7, maybe the router but I've searched and found nothing special indicating that it is blocking anything.
Has anybody got a clue what's going on here??
all the best
