    ok, ok, calm down

    can you exchange files between the laptop and the pc?
    you say that on the desktop it's saying lan connected, but have you sent files across?

    edit: can you play any other lan games on your setup or have you only tried this one?

    here is a ddl for a patch for the demo. it doesn't appear to have anything to do with your problem, however, it may be worth downloading anyway
