Networking errors (authentication connection)

I am trying to connect to several games (so far these are minecraft (only the servers singleplayer works), warframe, war thunder, and uplay.) most games are seeming to have issues connecting to the authentication server. So far I have, restarted my pc, reinstalled most of the games, restarted my router, checked my ports, checked my firewall, flushed my dns, and checked other forums online but they were only specific to one game. I have also tested the games on other pc's that share my network and I have also been able to run other games, (playerunknowns battlegrounds, heroes and generals, paragon, world of warships and most EA games.) I also suspect that it may be causing issues with Battlefront II multiplayer beta. Does anyone have a solution?

EDIT: I also traced my route to a minecraft server (only did it with minecraft) and I could connect to it over CLI but not through the game.

  1. Have you checked your firewall settings? Those games likely require specific ports to be opened.

    I have my pc's firewall off and I turned it back on with failure still, my network firewall is allowing my families computers to connect to the same things I am trying to connect to however.

  3. If other PCs at the same location do not have this error and yours does. Play that Sesame Street game.... one of these things is not like the others, one of these things is not quite the same.

    Go to the other PC and go through their network settings and firewall settings.
    Do the same on your own.
    Check your homes firewall in case a port is not open but forwarding traffic to that other PC.
