Network gaming issues

  Si_L 10:59 12 Jul 2008

I am trying to hook up two computers to play a multiplayer game (AOE II) over the wireless network.

One is on XP and is wired to the WiFi router, the other is on Vista and uses an adaptor.

Basically, if I create a game on one PC, the other one doesn't find it.

Help is much appreciated.

Maybe a router problem. click here says he got it to work by disabling the internet connection!

Likely a router problem, but cutting off the internet connection didn't work unfortunately.

Any other ideas?

Disable the Firewalls on both machines.
