How to Open a Port in Your Router for Command & Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath

Command & Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath is Electronic Arts's Real-Time and Strategy game released in 2008.

When you play Command & Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath you will experience the following styles of play.

  • Real time strategy games do not have turns, but instead have both players competing at the same time. They typically involve a mostly top down view and involve troop and building creation as well as resource management such as mining and logging. Popular examples are Warcraft and StarCraft.
  • Strategy games tend to focus on planning and skillful thinking in order to beat either real players or bots. They can be either real-time in which the play clock ticks continuously or turn-based where each player has a dedicated turn to finish their action. It is not uncommon to include exploration and resource management.

Forward Ports for Command & Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath

When you are playing Command & Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath you might need to forward some ports in your router. Forwarding ports is a useful trick in gaming because it can really help to make your network connection most stable and on occasion even faster. Routers were not designed to allow incoming network requests and some games can play tremendously better if an incoming connection is forwarded through the router to the game.

Before You Forward a Port

Before you can forward a port you need to know the following things:

  • The IP address of your network router.
  • Your gaming machine's IP address.
  • A list of TCP and UDP ports to forward.

How to locate your router's IP Address

The easiest way to find your router's IP address is to run our free Router Detector utility. It's a part of the Network Utilities suite of tools and it's completely free to use.
