Feeling kind of frustrated at this point as my normal goof around unitl you understand it problem solving methodology is not working in this circumstance. Games run fine on both PCs in single player mode, but I can’t parse how to get them to “see” each other over the simple home LAN so we can do multiplayer.
Son’s PC running Win ME hooked to network via wire to router/switch
Dads PC running Win XP Pro hooked to network via wire to router/switch
Network is a basic WRT54G Linksys wireless/wired router + 4 port hub-switch with another switch/hub attached to it to allow more than 4 wired connections. Works fine. WAN port of router is connected to cable modem to all all connected PC broadband net access. This also works fine.
Under multiplayer and network option in Q3 Arena I’ve tried all sorts of settings but can’t seem to get the games to “see” each other over the network.
Any suggestions appreciated. Step by step instructions especially
