Hi, six months ago ,me and a bunch of friends decided to do a not so big lan party(about 10),
Every games were working right until it came with the network, every pc were connected to a Netgear switch 16 ports, the weird thing is that (example)
pc1 could see pc2-3 but not pc4 and
pc2 could see pc1-3 but not pc3 and pc4
Worst of all , when playing starcraft some players just couldn't see the hosted game,but can go inside the host pc.
I think that day i tried putting everyone on a fix Ip until a friend of mine came and screw up everything.
The party was like 1 hour of play for 4 hours of troubleshooting.
So I was wondering if someone could tell me how to set-up things right?
(I Wonder if putting gamespy arcade would be just simpler, since we play old games i doubt it's going to lag)
I remember someone connected a router to the switch so we could all get dynamic IP, but i didn't know about the subnets , to tell you truth you got me lost on step 3.
Last time i connected everyone on the network switch with static Ips, but still there was problems, i guess i'll bring my old computers tomorrow and try to make them work fine with a switch / router / dynamic ip
