I am currently receiving socket closed errors when trying to run the eve online.
I had this problem almost exactly a month a go and it has returned. I have reset both my modem and my router
numerous times but with little effect.
I enclose my speedtest results
Please let me know what else I need to post which would help.

Thanks for the prompt replies.
As far as I know there are no ports forwarded as reading up on what it meant I would have to change some data within my router.
What are the advantages or disadvantages of port forwarding. Would it help or cause problems.

Not necessarily advantageous but it would mean that the router definitely isn't blocking the games connection with the firewall. I've had a look around about this closed socket error and most seem to think this is an issue with CCP themselves. A quick google around will show what others have done to bypass the issue.
I personally would suggest putting your hub into modem mode which will give you a new WAN IP and should reroute the path you take to the server.
Let us know if this helps at all.
