Multiplayer connectivity error


Hi all,
I’m having problems connecting to the multiplayer servers on age of empires 3, when i click multiplayer in game it comes up with ‘connecting to ESO’ then it fails and says could not connect to ESO. I think the main problem is that my internet becomes unstable and doesn’t have proper connection? my firewall has accepted the application (all 5 .exe files) and still no luck.

Also my brother launches and plays online fine so i doubt its problem with the ports or the router.


Do you use wireless or cabled LAN connection to your router? What OS do you run?
