Thread: How Do I Setup A Network?

  1. #1
    Hey can anyone tell me how to setup my network to where i can play a lan multiplayer game with a computer i am connected to. Right now me and another computer are connected through a router and share a dsl connection. I want to know how to set it up where we can play say a quake 3 arena game on multiplayer. How do i get them talking to each other. can you just give me a walkthrough on what to do?

    go to net work naborhood on each comp right click and select properties
    cilck add->client-> client for ms network re start ur comps (this may all ready be installed)
    then go to nethood properties again and click on file and printer shareing check file shareing (and printer sharing if u want too be able to print on the printer on the comp with the printer from a comp with out one) click ok dont restart
    then click on the ident tab at the top and give ur comps a difrent name on each and the same workgroup name restart the comps and ur connected go to game and make ur multi player game
    dont play quake so im not shure of the options there but ull need to use the tcpip or UDP option
    in starcraft it would be make a local area network game (udp)
    enjoy ur muli player game

    it is depending on operation system.

    but you will find this or tell us what os you use.

    and maybe you have to install IPX/SPX protocol.

    please name type of network adapters in them are you using rj45 (cat5) cable with an hub or router.
    Or do you have a cros linked cable (for 1 on 1 connection).

    I just have a simple router called [ipaq (connection point cp-2e)] I have a network cable coming from my lan card to the router then from the router to another personal home computer's lan card and they share a dsl connection (dsl hooked to router). I just wanna get it to play multiplayer lan games with each other.

    dmorgan89 the instrustions above where for win 98 but they should be the close too the same for XP
    and as uncle_cracker said quake may need the ipx\spx protcal for network games
    the best thing i can tell u is got to the quake sight there will be a walkthru there to show u what u need to do to get it too work

    The protocol is already on your computer, when you set up the properties of a connection, you can add protocols, clients etc. Windows will walk you through it.

    With XP just click the home networking wizard on both pcs and it will set it all up for u...

    U dont need to anything manually as its all automatic, all you need to do is answer a few basic questions which arent hard
