    I tried to connect to Games For Windows-LIVE, but it gave me two problems. They go along the lines of this: that I it could not connect to the internet and than I couldn't sign in. After looking around for quite some time I found the solution. The official site says that I need to open the following TPC Ports:

    * TCP port 80
    * TCP port 443

    So my question is, how can I open these up? Thank you to anyone who can help me out.

    What are you using for a router and firewall?

    Yes I am using a Belkin Wireless G Router. My firewall is currently disabled.

    What kind of modem is it connected to? You may be running "double NAT" which will screw things like that up.

    (I assume you are talking about outgoing connections) I don't believe your TCP ports 80 and 443 are closed ! Can you connect to web sites through http and https ? If yes, then these ports are open.
