The problem you have most probably is:

YOu did not open the necessary router ports.

Try and fix that. Have a look at the microsoft games support page for Rise of nations. You will find the ports to open there. Then go to your router configuration and open the ports.

That should fix the problem in 95 %.

If not, check if your firewall or antivirus blocks you from connecting.

The ports you need (from microsoft support page at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/820877/en-us

"Port listing
To make sure that these ports are open or to open these ports, contact your network administrator or Internet service provider (ISP). If you are the administrator of the network, view the documentation that is provided with your networking software to determine how to open these ports.

Rise of Nations requires that the 34987/UDP DirectPlay port be open to play a Local Area Network (LAN) or Direct Internet multiplayer game.

In addition to this port, to play through GameSpy Internet Matchmaking the following ports must be open:

80/TCP
1077/UDP
6500/UDP
6667/TCP
13139/UDP
27900/UDP
28910/UDP
29900/TCP
29910/UDP
29920/TCP

Have fun!

That did not change anything is it because of my crappy specs?

Are you sure that you opened all ports correctly? Also the port 34987/UDP ?

If it still does not work, i ask: Which version do you have? Gold version or RoN and TaP seperately?

Gold version sometimes makes problems and says you have the wrong game version.

I recommend to buy RoN and TaP (teh addon-on) seperately. I often heard from gold version players that theri is something wrong with their version and that the y cant join multiplayer games

Well, i know that issue is annoying.

But there is good reason to buy the game twice:
You will be able to play online then.
