    I have trouble hosting Internet multiplayer. I am getting the bad connection. Is there a way to find out EXACTLY what is preventing me from having the so called good connection?

    I have opened TCP port 14800 on my router, AoW3 is enabled in firewall and in antivirus. My ISP put their modem to bridge mode so my router is controlling the traffic. I have consulted with them and they insist it must be on my end (my router/PC), that they are not altering the traffic in any way.
    I also tried following: Running AoW3 as admin, adding gog to exceptions, widening the port range, port triggering instead of forwarding, disabling router firewalls, turning on/off UPnP. Making sure my PC IP is static. Turning off firewall and AV on PC, making the Firewall accept all incoming connections.

    Any idea what I am missing?
