    There shouldn't be any problem with playing with static ip addresses, that's not the issue.

    You need to give more details about how your internal network is configured, as for example, if you're behind a proxy that's another matter.

    We use static internal IP addresses on all our PCs here(router supports static IP allocation based on MAC address), and we have no problems playing games.

    I get that, i do... but you're not providing any details of how your network is configured nor what router or modem you are using, if you'd like to go ahead and provide that info i'll do what i can to help you set it up.

    FYI: With most modern routers you do not have to assign IP addresses, the router assigns them dynamically using what's known as DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol), your computer(s) should be setup to obtain an IP address automatically. The only time you should ever need to assign them manually is when you're using port forwarding/triggering for specific services/programs/games, for the majority of things the router should pass along data to the relevant ports automatically without the need for any manual configuration.

    In short, enable DHCP on your router, set the PC to obtain IP/DNS automatically, and you should be good to go... beyond that you need to provide more info on the configuration settings you're using and the hardware(modem/router) you have.

    So what are you saying, you play AoEO from a connection that you don't own? ie. a connection in a hotel?

    We have DSL(often just referred to as cable) here(ADSL would be a phoneline connection), so your setup shouldn't be that much different to ours. You do not have to assign IP addresses manually if you have control over the modem and computers you are using.

    Do you own and have access to the modem and/or router(whichever is applicable)? If yes, then write down the model number and brand for me please in your response.

    P.S. Can a mod move this topic into support please(suggestions isn't the right place for this thread).
