Warcraft 3 hosting BSOD

Q: Warcraft 3 hosting BSOD

For a while on this computer using both Vista and now Windows 7 I get the BSOD when I try to host certain games in WC3. It will sometimes happen immediately and other times it will happen after a few moments, Other times it wont happen at all, but it is still a huge annoyance not knowing when my computer will crash. This problem only happens when I try to host a game. Hopefully someone can tell me what I need to do for someone to help me with this problem.

Preferred Solution: Warcraft 3 hosting BSOD

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I know there are topics about this but in my case, I'm not using a router. I put it as an exception in my firewall and I still can't host. Help?


Edit: Someone at another forum suggested that it might just be my modem that doesn't let any ports go through, period. Is that possible?

the people connecting to you will also need to portforward as well since the data willl need to go back to them.
Also make sure you don't have any firewalls on your computer blocking you (Norton Internet Security / ZoneAlarm etc)

If you're behind a router, make sure that you have the proper ports forwarded.

I have the WNR834B router, and I can't host games for Warcraft 3 on this router. My other router (DI-704P) allows me to host though.
DMZ has also been tried, doesnt work(WNR834B). (So im guessing the problem is with the router, not my computer.) I have forwarded the ports and used port checking tools like portforward.com and it says the port is not open. (However when I go on the DI-704P, my hosting works but the port checking tool still says my port is not open. )

(I use Windows XP Pro by the way)

Thanks in advance guys. If you have any questions about things you need to know about my computer/network, ask me.

I have warcraft 3 frozen throne and i used to host games on it with the correct ports open and everything.

I can no longer host and i get an error message suggesting to open port 6112. I have opened port 6112 on my router as well as my windows firewall. still i couldn't host. I then turned off all my software firewalls to check if that was blocking but it still wouldn't work.

I can access my server from inside my home network but other people outside can't get in. Im am therefore assumming it would be my router...

ugh... im really frusterated... any advice?

A:Warcraft 3 HOSTING

Ya, make sure that the router is forwarding it to the correct computer. Some routers, when rebooted, lose the info, and send it to a different ip. Although you say you can access the server from inside the network...do you mean from another computer on the lan? If that's the case, then remove the router from the equation, and see if anyone can connect then. At least that way it will eliminate the router as a problem.

Ok, so I have read all of the other posts, and tried most of their suggestions, and I still cannot get my hosting to work. I have ports 6112-6119 opened on my router, and also I read to try a few other ports, 116 and 118. I opened the ports on my firewall as well, and I don't think that's the problem because I still cannot host with my firewall off. My modem is an Arris TM602G/CT. I think that the problem may be somewhere in there because I am pretty sure my ISP doesn't block the ports since I have friends that host with the same ISP, and they also have similar linksys routers that I set up for them the same way I set up mine. If anybody could show me how to set up my modem, or configure things another way so that it would work, please let me know, because I have been working on this for a while and am stuck.

What is the make and model of your router?
On the status page, take note of the WAN or Internet IP address that is listed in the router. Then go to www.portforward.com and check the external IP address listed there. Are they the same or different?

Hi, my problem here is that I cannot host for Warcraft III: TFT/RoC.

First off, I could not host at all (no router yet). Then I got a Netgear router and I could host afterwards. But later my computer had some problems and it didn't work at all, so I had to reformat. After I reformatted, (still Netgear) I could no longer host. I thought it was my router problem, so I went to buy a new router -- Linksys WRT54GX4 -- but it still did not work.

Any ides ? Thanks in advance.

Router: SpeedTouch 510
Game: Warcraft 3 TFT
Port (that needs to be open): 6112
Anti Virus: Avast (Before Avast, McAfee)
Extra thing: Spybot

I've followed the portforwarding guide from Portforward.com, and that didnt seem to work, Ive also tried to connect to a ethernet cable (isnt that the name?) and I still cant seem to be able to do it.

So if someone got any tips or something that would be useful.

A:Warcraft 3 hosting problems

Hi natont, and welcome to TSG.

If you are connecting to the Internet through some type of residential broadband service, your service provider may not allow residential customers to run any kind of servers and may be blocking incoming connections to typical port numbers used by such servers. If that is the case here, the site rules prohibit assisting with bypassing such restrictions.

You mention you tried port forwarding, but did not give the details. Assuming you are using some kind of modem/router in addition to the Netgear WNR2000 router, the modem/router might also need to have port forwarding added.

Sorry to report that most of the people here are not clairvoyant and have no idea what you may have actually tried when you say, "I've tried everything I could find." It would help us to help you if you give more details (like if you are using a static IP address on your LAN for the server and the specific port numbers being forwarded) on what you have tried.

Guys, I know you're probably tired of hearing the same old "I CANT HOST HELP ME" yelling and screaming. So I am truely sorry. I had high speed wireless internet installed today. I love it. I load up WC3 and try to host DotA (a custom map) and no one joins. I know this is the sign of not being able to host. I checked my port and it's set to the default 6112. Windows Firewall is set to let WC3:TFT have free roam of the network. Nobody would join even with the Windows Firewall disabled so that can't be the problem. And here's the catcher...I have no router. My wireless is received by, get this, a receiver. Lol. goes through a direct ethernet cable through the ceiling and down to my computer into a 3Com Gigabit LOM. (on-board) If you guys have got any ideas they would be amazing.

Meh, and also...

Well, before when I was connected to the router (I'm gonna be reconnected to the router again in a few days), I would always lag out of ALL custom games excluding Tides of Blood. Why only Tides of Blood? Well, now I can play...

And, when I was playing Defense of the Ancients, I would always be in the game for *EXACTLY* five minutes, and it would say, that horrid message, "You were disconnected."

Hi. I have a strange problem with hosting games of Warcraft 3, the Frozen Throne. I'm running
-Windows XP sp2.
-windows firewall is disabled.
-cable modem
-behind a router (Netgear MR814v2).
-Warcraft 3 is set to use port 6112.
-My router is set to forward traffic on port 6112 to my computer.

Ok so at first everything seems normal. I start wc3, host a game on Bnet, people join, and everybody's happy. Game ends. Heres where things get interesting:

I host another game. Nobody can join. I exit bnet, restart wc3, and host another game. Nobody can join. I alt tab, switch the port forwarding from port 6112 to port 6111 and immediately afterwards people fill up the game. I leave the game, host another, and 50% of the time nobody can join. Alt tab, open router config again, switch BACK port to 6112. 50% of the time people can join. Exit bnet, start bnet, host a game, and people can join again.

I don't understand this at all. Port 6111 is just a random port, I think I could instead switch it from 6112 to 7713 or X random port and it would have the same effect. All of my other programs that need ports forwarded work just fine and I have no software or hardware firewalls.
What I've tried:
-I have tried forwarding ports 6111-6119 or whatever is recommended, that didn't work.
-I have tried turning off forwarding altogether, didn't work.
-I have tried changing the port wc3 uses. didn't work.

So I used to play and host warcraft 3 games with xp couple months ago. One month ago, I installed vista... So again forwarded ports but it seemed like it was more complicated with vista. I dont remember how i finally did to been able to host but.. I was able to host like 3-4 weeks then problem came back (I couldnt host again). I dont know if its cause i downloaded service pack 2... or some other update but.. even with ports forwarded (I use linksys), with firewall disabled... and i tried with dmz enable.. it still doesnt work... I disabled windows defender.... still doesnt work. Then i found something strange in my ipconfig cmd (well i think its anormal)

When i type /ipconfig it do errors like this

I have no anti-virus at all... and Ive been looking on several forums to find someone with same problem but no one could answer

So do you think there is a problem in that cmd config?
Should i try reinstalling wc3? or should i try update to windows 7?

I apologize for the caps on title, but I wanted to make sure this was seperated from other warcraft 3 posts, and that future searches like mine will turn this up.

The Problem:

I cannot host warcraft 3 maps. The original problem to which im addressing is the issu that I follow steps at portforward.com but the results are different than they have been in the past. Likely because of the different router. My second problem opens when I decide to take the router out of the picture and go with a direct connection from modem to PC. This unfortunately, and to my surprise - doesn't work.

Stumbling onto this site through google, where someone with a linksys router has an issue, I decided to post.

My router: Linksys Dual-Band Wireless-N Gigabit Router (please explain dual band vs regular router too if you can.)
Model #: WRT320N

My moden: Provided by CoxCable in northern Florida the Identification is as follows...
Model #TM602G
Company: ARRIS
What I have tried so far:

I made static ip with last digits being only 101-110
Logged into my router and opened ports 6112-6119 for war3
Installed the port checker only to find ports closed. However, ports are reported opened when directly connected to modem. Otherwise they are closed.
In all situations I have had my firewalls both off and on. All exceptions made. Using McAfee for protection
Any quick reply would be appreciated, thanks.
