My buddy and me both bought a copy of battlefront so we can play together on the pc. We have a Linksys router so we both have the same ip address this has never been a problem before hand in any other game. But we are capable of playing for about 1 whole match then we loose connection to host or the game locks up. We have updated the firmware on the router that doesnt help, we forwarded the ports that gamespy needs to use, that doesnt help. We are capable of playing solo for a extended period of time ( only one of us playing online). Anyone have any suggestions or is anyone else having this problem?

you playing lan? internet? id internet did you open a port for udp 3658??

also i have run into the same problem with my sons pc and mine with jk2 at times. i just ordered a seperate ip for my pc and that fixed the problem.

Yeah, I have the same exact problem with my room-mate. I tried updating the firmware and doing the forwarding thing, too, but agian, no luck. We can sometimes get away with playing on different servers, but that's no fun....

The only difference is that we have seperate IP addresses, and it still doesn't work.....I sure hope they fix this!
