here is the problem.....I live in one state with cable modem without a firewall....my brother lives in another state with a firewall.....we can't seem to get multi play to work.....is it because of his firewall or do we just not know what we are doing? Thanks!

Hey Theros, why not just ask him to take it down? :)

sadly that is not possible.....because the firewall is made because of the wireless remote ......it acts as a firewall and to turn it off means he can't be on he'd have to plug in directly all the way downstairs....i guess if he plugged directly into the cable modem he'd be fine.......maybe I can get him to put the game on one of the other comps downstairs. sigh.....besides the parental unit who is in charge of the networking wouldn't be happy about taking the firewall down....he is careful about that stuff...maybe a bit too much....though i dunno...it could be justified. I'm rambling because I will be waiting for my roomie to get home before I can play multi play and by that time I'll probably be asleep!.....sigh............... oh well......it's life!!! :)
