A week ago I changed my ISP, and along with it, all settings related to my wifi connection via modem. Ever since, I've been unable to join any Minecraft server, modded, using different clients (Technic, FTB, etc.), but any other online game with community or dedicated servers work.
I received the following error message when trying to join any server:
io.netty.channel.AbstractChannel$AnnotatedConnectException: Connection refused: no further information:
Since then, I have tried to:
1- Port forward all ports from 1024 to 65535 (has not worked)
2- Disable and change all firewall settings both on my PC and the modem
3- Change IP addresses and connect to servers directly
4- Restarted the modem, computer, reinstalled both Minecraft and Java and sacrificed a goat
Anyone has a clue about what to do next? I've spent a week searching and trying different solutions to no avail.
