View Full Version : Shared internet connection
06-11-2002, 10:30 AM
I share a cable internet connection (through a router) with another computer in my house. We both can't play in the same game room(either direct connect or throught the zone) with another player. We can play 1 v 1 just fine. . Is there anyway to fix this problem???

I have a linksys router
I have a DSL connection that I share with 3 computers (2 PCs and a Mac) through a Linksys router. None are the computers are networked (in that they share files or anything like that). I tried (for the hell of it) to install GB on both computers the other night and try a LAN game and was shocked to see that it worked perfectly.
I was really surprised that it did.

i'm finding it impossible to host an internet game and suspect that my firewall is the cause. does anyone know which port # i need to open to get this to work?
im trying to find the port too, havint the same problem b/c im on a lan, lan games work fine but i need to open the port i think so i can play over the internet.
