Ever since I got my router I am unable to join or host any games. I get the message that "game session is no longer available" when I try to join. Sometimes I will be able to join the lobby, but when the game launches I get kicked out with that same message. When people try to join my games they get the same message. I am on my router's DMZ, a DLink DI604. Can anyone help?

Well, I was going to suggest opening the ports listen in the manual, but you are in the DMZ, so it won't matter. Make sure that you are in the DMZ, and you didn't accidentally put in the wrong IP, and upgrade the router's firmware.

I used to have this problem, because everyone in my entire ISP runs off the same IP address (like a giant lan with NAT), unless you buy your own dedicated IP address (which I did for 10 extra dollars a month and never regretted it).
