I have been having some problems connecting to ANY minecraft server from my home internet. I have tried connecting to servers that have ports other that 25565 (default port) and I still haven't had any luck. I have proven that the cause is not my computer's (macbook pro) fault by trying to connect to servers using my friends internet and at school. I am able to connect to servers from other internet connections but not mine at home! Please help! (ask as many questions as needed so I can fix this problem) BTW, if this helps, my internet provider is quest and I have a dls modem.

I am guessing this is a port issue.

  1. On your url bar type in or

  2. Log in to your dsl modem.(The password and username are typically "admin.")

  3. Go to Port Forwarding,

  4. Create a new rule with the following:

TCP=25565. UDP=25565. Schedule= Always. IP Address= *nothing

Did you have the Ethernet cable connected to the computer? Are you using WiFi?

I would try tinkering with the firewall, that's what is usually wrong when my servers don't work correctly. Good luck!

Does your ISP block Minecraft for some reason? (Can't imagine why but anything seems to be possible just lately!) Do you get any error messages or just a blank screen? I'm assuming that you've done a sweep for viruses and malware.

I can't even log in to Minecraft to even play today. I think the login server is down or something.
