Hi Kenny,I have a router and have experienced no isuses with FSX at all. However, if you are wanting to access VATSIM or similar on-line resources, you may need to open ports, etc. I'm not sure.Bruce.

Tks. Bruce for your reply thought I had seen something in the forum several years ago with problems using a router and FSX.Have a safe day.Kenny G.

You should be OK using FSX with a router. As far as I'm aware you don't need to open any ports to access VATSIM or IVAO either, so it should all be good. The only time ports need to be opened are for things such as FSHost or the multiplayer already in FSX, but I don't expect you'll be needing them.
