    I have several tips for fixing connection problems in my tagline... you can check them out.

    BUT in your case you probably need to click "Start" and type "Allow" and and press enter to Allow a progrm through windows firewall.

    Also make SURE... absolutely POSITIVE you do have ZoneAlarm turned off. When you google for games not connecting.. MOST of the links mention zonealarm getting in the way.

    Go to Start > Run,. and type cmd. Then type the following commands below

    Do a TRACERT

    Now try ping the game server and get the IP

    See what the times are Mine is typically 45ms from Google
