Default SAMP won't connect to servers. (internet problem maybe?)

I've been having this problem for a week or something now and it is really pissing me off.

I had new internet router and lightning cable installed like a week ago and after that SAMP just won't connect to servers. I forwarded ports and opened them too. This problem occurs in the other computer too. So I tried playing other games and I couldn't play CS 1.6 (didn't work in the other computer either) but when I played Unreal Tournament 2004 via Steam, there was no problem. I tried the firewall solution but still nothing works..

samp generally doesn't need any ports forwarded, unless you're running a server. if you can see the ping in the server browser, you should be able to connect to it.

maybe your router/internet provider is blocking UDP traffic. UT2004 could have been upgraded at some point to use steam instead of raw UDP.

I see the ping in the server browser, but when I connect, it says: ''Couldn't connect to server. Retrying..''

Are you trying more than one server?

the server browser and samp use the same port and protocol, so it's strange.

edit:

well I have to allow both samp.exe and gta_sa.exe through my firewall.

if I had samp.exe allowed and gta_sa.exe blocked, I'd see what you are seeing. but you said it was only a router upgrade.

Yes, I tried many servers and every single one didn't work. Before I had my router upgraded, all worked fine..

Sounds like it's either going to be something in your router settings or something your ISP is doing. If there's some anti-DOS setting in your router you could try disabling it.

Go onto your router website, login and check the firewalls etc. for any blocks.

Funny thing is, I don't even have any firewall in my router. One of my friends told me that SAMP servers run on 4bit (or digit i dont remember) and my internet is 6bit and I could create a tunnel. But I'm not familiar with any of these internet things so I have no idea what that means.. does it make sense?

Well you said you see the ping in the browser, so it's working 90%. Do you see the player list and rules?

Best thing is probably to find the website of the router model and ask if anyone has trouble with CS 1.6.

I see the player list, I see everything. But at least now I know that this is not the games problem..
