    Default Zone Alarm Security Suite & Games for Windows Live

    We recently installed Dawn of War II on my son's computer and it worked fine. I restarted my Belkin router for an unrelated reason and this Games for Windows Live will not log on. The internet works, Dawn of War II starts, Steam which the game uses fires up, but no Games for Windows Live which is necessary for the game. Of course I thought it was something the router did, so I checked his system and the router, everything is okay. Then we shut down Zone Alarm and
    the game with its supporting software
    work just fine so we know its not the router. We've tried 'game mode' and we went to the Games for Windows Live website and put the port settings into ZA per instructions,
    neither worked. The only changes we have made were to change the password on the router, upgrade to the latest version of Zone Alarm Security Suite, and select the ports per the game website plus a few restarts.
    It seems odd that the game was working prior to the router restart and now it's not without turning off Zone Alarm. Am I missing something?? Does the game need reinstalled?

    When your restartedyour Belkin router for an unrelated reason, maybe it change the locan DHCP sent to ZoneAlarm..1.) check ZA Firewall/Zones secion..make sure the IP is correct and that all listings are in the Trusted Zone, not internet Zone..2.) check ZA Program Control - Program section and see if there is a Listing for the Game and if so, them give it Green Check marks for Trusted and Internet access..3.) if there is a listing for your Belkin Router, make sure that it's permission has not changed..--------------------------------------------------------
