Help with multiplayer LAN with Age of Empires 2

Solved 1 Answers 62 Views Computers & Internet

I have the game Age of Empires 2 and would like to LAN with my family again, but when someone creates a game no one can see it anymore. I have tried literally everything to make it work as it should but nothing works. This problem happened when we got a router from our ISP. If you need more information on how to fix the problem, I will be glad to do so.

Please help!  :-)

You are connected via Lan? Direct cross over or via router check your ip addresses on both computers if they have same gateway and also if the computers are detecting each other

Yes all the computers are connected via LAN, via a ethernet switch. All of them can LAN with other games just fine and all of them has Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 installed. The gateways are also all the same

Hi, I just want to let you all know how I fixed my problem, I just bought an expansion "THE FORGOTTEN" and looks like they fixed the LAN.

Thanks for your help! :-)

Hot News (SASSA card expiring December 2017).

SASSA wish to put it on record that no beneficiary of social grants will be affected by this expiry date. SASSA is in a planning phase regarding the future payment of social grants once the contract with the current service provider CPS (Cash Paymaster Services) comes to an end in March 2018. As soon as final plans are in place beneficiaries will be informed about the updating process later on in the year. So there no need to run for a renewal. See SASSA payment cycle for December 2017 HERE.
