    Connection Test Failure

    First off, i'm not sure if this is to be posted here, i'm sorry if it isn't.

    So, like many other people I seem to be having an issue with the connection test. I've already disabled firewall and allowed FG through as an exception. I haven't forwarded the port because i'm currently unsure of how to do so and I'm not sure if i'm able to.

    If it helps, this is the following I get from tracert 8.8.8.8 :


    Tracing route to google-public-dns-a.google.com [8.8.8.8]
    over a maximum of 30 hops:

    1 1 ms 1 ms 1 ms 10.0.0.1
    2 10 ms 12 ms 9 ms 96.120.88.81
    3 11 ms 9 ms 9 ms be-10009-rur01.sanjose.ca.sfba.comcast.net [162.151.30.225]
    4 15 ms 24 ms 11 ms be-231-rar01.santaclara.ca.sfba.comcast.net [162.151.78.249]
    5 11 ms 10 ms 9 ms be-299-ar01.santaclara.ca.sfba.comcast.net [68.86.143.93]
    6 11 ms 10 ms 18 ms 96.112.146.26
    7 * * * Request timed out.
    8 16 ms 11 ms 9 ms google-public-dns-a.google.com [8.8.8.8]

    Trace complete.

    I might need some extra help with that since i'm not too tech savvy and don't know what to do

    Edit: i just tried Hamachi and it still results in a connection test failure

    Did you start at the top and work your way thru?

    2. The first two sets (octects) of your WAN IP as displayed by Fantasy Grounds and as displayed by your Router
    4. Confirmation that you have set your Adapter in Network and Sharing Centre to Private
    7. Confirmation as to what you have setup in your Router if changes have been made

    basically anything that has to do with the router since it's not mine (family router, brother set it up, don't know how to access any information about it)

    4. Start by googling "change my network adapter to private?"
    2. probably doesnt matter here so far...

    if you can actually answer the other questions as well it might be a start...

    #2 Do you know how to get the IP address FG sees? Start FG and Start Campaign. Then click on the External "Click to retrieve". To get what the router sees your computer as, you will need to log into the router. To do that, you will need to get the admin password from your brother if he has changed it from the default. Take a look at the router and let us know what the make and model is. Then we can tell you how to login and what the default password is.

    #4 Assuming you are running Windows, the steps will be something like this (these are for Win 7); search and open the "Network and Sharing Center". On that page will be a "Active Networks" And under the name of your wifi network it will say something like "Public", "Home", "Work".
