Here is the major problem: It doesn't work. This is a pretty fundamental problem. I have a wireless netgear pier to peir LAN. I use it to play games with friends not on the internet. Here is so far what I have done to work out what is wrong: 1) Ensured bith games are updated 2) checked both PCs can see the network 3) checked the games have different CD keys (NOT aquired illegally) Both games run, but if I start a server, the other computer cannot see it. This is not the first game to have done this. Halo CE refuses to do it too, but no-one could help there. But games like JK3 and DoWWA do work over the server. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Check that your firewall settings are not blocking the other computer from 'seeing' the server that you create.
