Netgear Router DGN1000 - How to unblock multiplayer game


Likes # 0

Hello Everyone!

I am banging my head on the table here trying to allow my router to give access to a multiplayer game (San Andreas Multiplayer GTA).

I have tried creating services and then adding them to the firewall rules to allow access to ports 7777 and 17015, I have even tried disabling the netgear inbound firewall service yet It is still not allowing me to connect to any of the multiplayer servers.

When I add a rule to the firewall it says 'Send to Lan Address' and I put my Ipu4 in (Dont know if thats correct?).

Please, any help and advice would be appreciated

I have tried connecting to servers on other games and it works fine, its specifically disallowing me to connect to any San Andreas Multiplayer servers.

Any ideas?

Hi Mikernator,

When I need to use port-forwarding the first place I go is here: enter link description here

I cant find your specific router, however from experience I find Netgear usually use the same interface for their routers (I have Netgear dgn834).

Also I can't find your specific game in their listings so maybe follow these instructions substituting the relevant ports enter link description here

Also your router ip address is so if your pc is second in line to your router the ip address will end in 2 instead of 1.

So Send to Lan Address will probably be, at least that's how it works on my Netgear Router.

It's also possible your personal firewall is preventing the multi-player executable from accessing the internet.

Hope this helps
