Sorry man, you have reached the end of my 'puter knowledge -- hopefully a tech geek somewhere can solve this puzzle for you, because short of reinstalling NWN from scratch, I have no idea what a solution might be.

  Woman* and I have tried re installing from scratch lol

 I am tempted to find someone to let try to remotely figure this out..I really dont have any personal information on the computer. Its just a matter of finding someone who has half a clue :)

Well...

It's probably not the best idea-but if I were trying to figure out if it were my firewall or something else, I'd just shut off my firewall entirely, just long enough to try connecting. If it works then it's your firewall and if it doesn't it something else. I know you gave NwN permission on it, but I recall having done that in the past and it for some reason still not allowing it through and had to do some other stuff (this was years and years ago so I'm sorry I don't remember what I did). Since I'm not the biggest computer expert I'm just saying I'd do that anyway to be sure  :lol:

I think I found the problem....Windows 8 :P jk. If you haven't done this yet, run malware spyware scans. After that, whether anything is found or not, turn your PC off and flush the RAM which may be different if you have a laptop or desktop. There is a Windows 8 support topic around here somewhere, but I think its too new for NWN so I just use 7 and my old XP tower I started NWN occasionally. If nothing works after the guy comes you could try dual booting 7 or xp, and yes there are custom developed updates and service packs for XP.

Also check your network drivers and ports in Device Manager, make sure nothing is blocked or disabled,I believe the port is mentioned in an above reply. If no problem is seen after that, then check your antivirus and firewall to see if anything is blocked or disabled, or if NWN somehow was blocked in your security center. You might also need to clean up and defrag, and the last solution, if nothing else works, maybe there are errors in the registry.

 Thank you Hanzo I have tried pretty much all of that..
 Also, when I run my network "troubleshooter" with the server address it says "It is online but not responding to connection attempts".

 Which sounds to me like its not a problem on my end?

Well one thing to do would be asking your isp if they blocked the port or ask a DM/admin if your IP was blocked somehow. If everything else on your computer is fine then there is most likely a blockage somewhere probably on the server side or ISP. The other problem could be with GameSpy too...

One more question, have you been running the game in compatibility mode?

Yes.
Also I have tried direct connect methods skipping gamespy as well as the usual gamespy DC.

I have already contacted and asked my ISp.

Well dms have I been banned?
If so may I ask why?

Out of curiosity, have you tried direct connecting to any other NWN server?  If you are not able to connect to ANY, then it is at your end, but if you can connect to others, but not PoTM, then it is at their end.

If reseting your router didn't solve the problem I can't really help you...  I had the same problem though, only PoTM wouldn't show up. Don't know if you've got a laptop but if it'S the case you might want to try it on an other network and see if the problem comes from your network or your computer

I do suggest asking someone to help delete the errors from your registry also. That will help your system "forget" any errors. That my help and you can resume PotM. Are you on a laptop or desktop?
