Nope Axel, wouldnt let me connect ot the server I made.

Ok, that's pretty good news. It seems it is something on your computer is blocking nwn, and not something on the network. I'm rather tired right now, but I'll try to think of something tomorrow while procrastinating at the university.

Oh, by the way, do you run nwn in windows xp compatibility mode?

Ok, I'm procrastinating at the moment.

The only thing I can think of is to follow the advice given on the forum at nwn.bioware.com. It goes something like this:

1: set nwmain.exe to "XP SP2 compatibility mode"
2: set nwmain.exe to "run as administrator"
3: run nwmain.exe

You've probably tried the above already, but if not, it's worth a shot, If you still can't connect, then do the same to nwserver.exe and try to host a local game and connect to it.

  If you're under Vista the built in firewall may be running even if you don't want it to.  You may have to manually go into it and set NWN as an exception if that's the case.

Well I tried the firewall thing, and I tried the run in XP SP2, an running as an admin... but still nothing. I think this might be an omen. :(

Is this a new computer that came with a limited subscription of Norton 360?

Ok, well i am reinstalling NWN again, I will try the updater which will fail, then I will use the 1.69 critical rebuild update. I will then Go to the links on the forum to download the CEP2 autoinstaller, and the custom files for PotM. Anything I'm doing wrong?

What sort of internet connection are you using?

Wired or Wireless? (Wireless meaning 3G or Cell tower technology)

Also I've encountered programs such as "Peer Gaurdain" and other peer to peer blockers have prevented NWN from connecting to Gamespy and further Direct Connect IP's. Ensure you do not have such programs in your windows Startup or running in the background.

I've always found that when in doubt, blame Norton.
