Unhappy Confusing port stuff? need help

Hi everyone

Just a little backgroung...ive been playing starwars galaxies an empire divided for a little over a month now with no problems up until this past Thursday. My computer randomly shut off in mid gameplay and i have never been able to get back in. Now before everyone yells at me to talk to Starwars Tech support know that i allready have...6 times on their live chat AND i called them. Long story short they dont have a clue whats wrong. Ive been going in circles on everything from updating drivers to directX and background programs but nothings worked. The weird part is that only two of my four characters crash, the others play fine but theyre my two least favorite. One guy i talked to said to do somthing interesting in an e-mail he sent me but failed to explain how. This is what he wrote:

In an effort to assist you in configuring your systems on your own, we
would like to provide the following information which may help you in
setting up your firewall software to work with Star Wars Galaxies": An
Empire Divided".

Star Wars Galaxies Launchpad and Patch Servers
A TCP connection is initiated from the LaunchPad client port > 1023 to
patch.station.sony.com port 7000.

A UDP connection is initiated from the LaunchPad client port > 1023 to
sdlaunchpad1.station.sony.com and sdlaunchpad2.station.sony.com port
range 3016-3021 and 9700-9703.

Star Wars Galaxies Patch:

A TCP connection is initiated from the Star Wars Galaxies client port >
1023 to patch.starwarsgalaxies.com port 7050.

Star Wars Galaxies Client
UDP connections are initiated from the Star Wars Galaxies client port
>1023 to servers on UDP ports 44453, 44462, 44463.

Additionally, ICMP messages type 0 (echo reply), 3 (unreachable), 8
(echo request) and 11 (expired) should be permitted bi-directionally
between the client PC and the Star Wars Galaxies servers.

Star Wars Galaxies Servers Subnets

There are multiple IP addresses for the Patch and LaunchPad clusters,
and they may change as the network demands, so check often using a DNS
lookup tool if you provide a specific firewall rule for these services.
The Star Wars Galaxies server IP addresses are currently in these
subnets: 199.108.6.*, 199.108.7.*, 199.108.8.*, 199.108.196.*,
199.108.197.*, 199.108.198.*



I sadly have no idea what this means but i think it might help me. If someone out there could give me specific directions, help me in any way or come up with another solution i would greatly, greatly appreciate it.

Thankyou very much
Kerry




P.S. (some of my system specs in case anyone needs to know)

So your computer works, but just not the game? If you haven't already done so, reinstall the game.

Dont double post plz! did you try updating to the latest drivers for your video card?, that may be the problem...... also it couold be that when you try to play the game something on your comp is overheating and causing it to crash... and will it even let you onto the game? try going to a different server or something if you can, also try turning down the graphics a bit, if you have it set at a 1024x 768 resolution, then try going to 800x600, or try going form medium gfx settings to low...
