Title: Battle.net servers and Linksys Routers

Article ID: 311


 

Battle.net servers now allow multiple connections from a NAT device, such as the Router. There is however, a limitation of availability to open a series of ports. You will need to set up port triggering to get this service running properly. You must also be running the latest firmware.
To setup port triggering go to http://192.168.1.1/Filters.htm. You will be prompted for a username and password. By default there is no username, and the password is admin. Once you've gotten past the log in you should be at the filters tab. Go to the Forwarding tab, then click on the Port Triggering button. Once you've done this, a new window will appear. Here is an example of how to fill out the ports:
 

Application Name

TriggerPortRange

IncomingPortRange

Battle.net

4000 ~ 4000

4000 ~ 4000

Battle.net

6112 ~ 6119

6112 ~ 6119


 

 

Once you've done this hit Apply, then Continue. Once you've done this Battle.net should work fine.
