Having issues with playing GTA4 online? I may have a fix!

Once you have your system's IP address (copy it or write it down), you need to find the DMZ Host option. Now, I'm not sure if this is available on every router. I'm not exactly an expert when it comes to routers, so I don't know if this is a standard feature. It was available to me and BunnyRabbit2, so I know I'm not the only one, at least.

To find this on my router, I clicked the ADVANCED tab and then FIREWALL SETTINGS from the sidebar.

You should find an option called DMZ Host. Here's the description it gave me in my settings:

The DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) option provides you with an option to set a single computer on your network outside of the router. If you have a computer that cannot run Internet applications successfully from behind the router, then you can place the computer into the DMZ for unrestricted Internet access.

Note: Putting a computer in the DMZ may expose that computer to a variety of security risks. Use of this option is only recommended as a last resort.

Now, I know it says that you expose your computer to security risks, but I don't know what that means for your console. I don't know how at risk your console is by enabling this mode, but I don't think there's much to be worried about. I haven't had any issues yet, and I don't think I will.

Either way, Enable this option at your own risk!

To enable the option, I simply had to paste my 360's IP address into the DMZ IP Address space and check the Enable DMZ Host checkbox. Save the changes, and.......

GET ONLINE!

Once again, I'm not sure this will work for everybody, but I've been able to connect to every match flawlessly since I did this.

Both 360 and PS3 owners: Please try this method if you are having issues and comment with your results. I'd like to confirm that this is actually a working fix for both systems. I know it'll be hard to resist the charms of killing hookers with 16 friends, but please take the time to comment whether it works for you or not.
