Hello everybody, I've had huge issues with ESO ever since I bought it some years ago and had at one point given up on it, but because my brother just bought it on sale I decided I would try and find a solution to these problems.
After somehow solving most of these problems I get a message saying "an error has occured, please try again" after the character selection menu. I finally found out that the problem is that the ports used by ESO are closed, since when I use a free VPN it works perfectly. The problem is that this free VPN only gives me 2gb of data per month and I don't want to get a paid VPN.
I tried contacting my IP to open the ports but they said I could either make my wifi public (which I absolutely won't do) or solve it myself. Now I have found the ports I'm supposed to open on this site: https://help.elderscrollsonline.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1133/~/what-ports-do-i-need-to-open-for-the-elder-scrolls-online
However I think I'm doing something wrong when trying to change the settings of my router because nothing I've tried has actually worked, thus I would like to ask you to help me if you know how to do this on a FritzBox 7490 router or some alternative solution that doesn't involve making my router public.
Thank you very much
