New Laptop won't play LAN

Hi All, I've had my MSI GX740 for about a month, and no games will work LAN on it. They all work fine to play online, and I can see other computers on the network but LAN gaming just does not work for any game. I thought it might be my antivirus cause I have NOD32 but disabling that did not help at all. My computer came with win7 64 bit but I installed win7 ultimate 32 bit cause the 64 bit was causing problems. LAN didn't work on the original install either so I though reinstalling would fix that but it didn't help. it's very frustrating cause I bought this as my main gaming computer. I've double checked all my settings and I can't find anything out of order but if you can think of anything that might be going wrong then I would greatly appreciate the help. I will give an example of my problem, Halo 2 when you go into the LAN lobby all of the other computers will find the game but mine will not. And Starcraft will sometimes be able to find the game but it can never connect. Thanks, TychoPsycho

Try turning off the firewalls temporarily in the computers you want to connect to while you set up the network.

the 2 computer should have the same workgroup name/ the same dns number/the same gateway number/the same submask/ip adress should be fifferent but in the same range for example:
PC1
IP: 192.168.0.67 SUB 255.255.255.0 GATEWAY 192.168.0.1 DNS 192.168.0.1
PC2
IP: 192.168.0.68 SUB 255.255.255.0 GATEWAY 192.168.0.1 DNS 192.168.0.1
WORKGROUP FOR BOTH : DELTAGAME
