I have a network set up using a Belkin mod# F5D5230-4 Router.My network works gr8, no problems there.I use cable modem for online. My problem is connecting to multi-player games ( Links 2003 ) when my kids computer is on.
I have set all ports and stuff in my router, it works fine as long as our 2nd computer is not running. So i think my problem is in Direct Connection. I think it gets confussed on which computer to go to.Can anyone help with this.
Also, i can add services to my XP Firewall, does anyone know what to enter for Direct X Play and Links 2k3?, if i can maybe get this to work, then i can put router in DMZ and still be protected.
TT Vins 2 computers playing thru a router at the same time have to use the same ports (normally) if your both trying to play the same game then both PC's are trying to use the same ports at the same time. Basicly you can't have both PC's play the same game at the same time thru the router. I have done a little research into this being a gamer myself. If you could follow up with a few more details myself or others here might be able to give a little more insight.
