I would like to open ports on my draytek, i keep getting timeouts on diablo 3 after about 5 minutes exactly every time, so i need to try if this will work. Others seem to be fine and can play so its somewhere from my side. tried googling nothing comes up for a dratek vigor130.

thanks in advance

Hi again.

i did some searching and somewhere it told me to flush my DNS from the command prompt, i also changed windows secondary logon to automatic, seems like one of the two or both fixed my issue SO FAR(touch wood). 

So i dont need to open ports for now, but will keep this manual handy in case i do, thanks again.
