    Whenever I play starcraft with another person on the same network in the same game with other online people, we would experience horrible latency issues. It's so bad that people will immediately drop from the game several seconds into the game. I've searched countless places for a solution without any luck. I should of looked for that solution here since so many of you are knowledgable in the area of configuring routers :). Anyone who has also experienced this problem would know that simply opening ports 6112 will not fix it. Perhaps someone here would like to share the remedy with me :p.

    if netgear can do it, linksys is also capable right? :eek:
    Netgear router added starcraft multiple gaming capability.

    Ask your router vendor to add this capability.

    Fixed in 2.0.15

    Fixed that UPnP packets caused the router to freeze.

    XR (Extended Range) now displays properly with a 108-mode XR-capable wireless adapters.

    Does anyone know how to get Port Forwarding and Port Redirection to allow multiplayer gaming on with (2 or more players from lan + 1 or more players from an external ip)?

    Any detailed solutions would is much appreciated, I use the router in my signature.

    I've tried doing so many things and failed.

    I opened starcraft ports 6112-6119 to my computer, opened ports 6112-6119 to my brother's computer, redirected port ext.6112 to int.169 for my computer, redirected port ext.6113 to 168 for my brother's computer. I still can't allow him to join my games while having external players in the same game.

    I just don't know how to correctly input data maybe.

    Now its been a whle since i have played SC, but does it like WC3 have a setting where you can tell it what port to use? If so, set you comp to 1 port and Port Forward that port to your comps ip, then set your brother's to another port and port forward that to your brother's ip. I have done such with WC3 and it works perfectly.

    starcraft multiplayer gaming help

    To this day, I still have not figured out how to get a starcraft game on consisting of 2 players under my router and a player or more from another household to run without mind blowing lag. Has anyone out there figured out the solution yet? There seems to be no help or pre-existing instructions anywhere in sight....

    THIS IS MY GOAL: All must be fulfilled simultaneously to be considered a sucess.
    1) Play an online game of starcraft on
    2) Game must have atleast 2 players from the home network under a Linksys WRT54G v2.2 router or similar
    3) Game must have atleast 1 player from outside of the home network(preferably a friend from his/her own house).
