For almost 2 weeks now, I have been suddently unable to connect with every players in the lobby/rooms on Kane's wrath
When i join a room the connection with others players is stuck to "in progress" (see picture, and this happens with erveyone01.png ).
I use the CD-Rom version on Windows 7.


CNCOnline_Log.txt error log file below :

I actually changed nothing on my rooter, computer, windows, no updates ...
I restarted my rooter and checked my firewall but nothing has changed.

NAT negotiation works with your router and connection.
==> You do not have to use port forwarding.

(Note : I have hidden my ip by XXX, if it's necessary to analyse, I ll send it by PM).


I have also tried with Zero hour and same problem, i can join the game but when we start, the connection screens shows i can't connect to anyone and the game doesn't start.

Plz don't answer me to use a VPN, this is not a solution for me, i have been playing this game since 2011 and never had this problem, so i want to fix the source of this issue.

Note : I also tried to play online in other games (not related to c&c online / revora) and i don't have this problem.

So let's be honest ...
I saw plenty of posts with the same problem and it looks like it cannot be solved in the end

Do you have a solution to fix this or is it a goodbye Kane's wrath ?

So i called my ISP.
And nothing has changed in their history, no DSL or IP change, no port closed ...
They can't fix anything.
And honestly i have high doubts that it's coming from my router, seeing that so many players (with different routers) have or had the conn bug, and also because the conn bug only happens with C&C online games

Also having similar problems too! I'm getting the grey phone icon everytime, and connection test passes with no issues. Game was working two weeks ago with the same peers without issues. We've tried excepting the game from the firewall, disabling the firewall, reinstalling the game and rehooking with no luck! Please help us!!!

No i stopped playing and said goodbye to KW.

Like everyone else who had the same problem...

Just look at the tickets over the past years, this has affected a lot of players and non of them got help.

This happened to some friends of mine who have stopped playing too.
