sounds like you need to port forward used ports on this mmorpg and/or turn off your router's security features. the game's server could be down too...

what is a port forward and how does it work??

Are you on a campus or business network? If so, there may be a firewall preventing acess to the needed port.

If you are attempting to connect via a home network, then you may need to configure your router.

What kind of router do you have?
Port forwarding is this...

Your router blocks connections on certain ports, when you port forward, you basically open those connections. Your router should have an admin page.

If your router is a linksys try typing in your browser's address bar, http://192.168.1.1/

user blank pass admin

If it isn't tell me what kind of router you have.

May be Your system admin or ISP provider can help you obtain those informations like router type etc. Also check for the proxy.Your browser may be configured with that but the game may not.The same thing happened to me with Yahoo messenger.I needed to configure the proxy value for that.

If you are not the network administrator, you won't be able to access the server or router to change the port forwarding settings. Usually for me, I can join online games without modifying the port forwarding thing, but the problem is that I can't host any games.
