don't play on wireless. many games are very sensative to latency issues wich abound when on wireless connections.

His problem isn't with steam (please keep your opinion of steam to yourself, no flame wars here). he has several games that do not work. Some do work. Some games handle latency better than others. Wireless introduces high latency among other issues. Wireless is great for most things, but gaming and large file transfers or streaming video just doesn't work well.

Hi, and welcome to geeks to go!

Sounds to me that you dont have the latest patch or the games are not legitimate, or just out of date, try to :
>Find the latest patch eg http://www.microsoft...s/downloads.htm

Otherwise it would be due to your connection. Online games require specific ports eg. Counter-Strike 25015 (<- Think), you will need to unlock/disable your firewall to play these games. For help with that vist your firewall manufacture, or post here.

Good luck,

Ntd

NB: Counter-strike is an awesome game in my opinion :tazz:

i've got that patch..But i can't play. My firewall is guilty for that. I can't turn off my firewall, cause then my internet connection doens't works.. I don't know how do i can entry any port in my firewall, cause i don't have any programs for this. On a box of wireless connection write:

-VPN connection support
-robust firewall protecting your network
-traffic redirecting for broadband backup connection
-mobile network for office
-UPnP support


is there any chance that i can play multiplayer games?

by the way.... why i can play enemy territory and call of duty multiplayer??

and if i go on page http://www.imageshack.us there is not my ip.
example: Your IP: 193.77.124.151 has been logged.
Make sure to read the Terms of Service. 193.77.124.151 is not my wright ip address ....

I had the exact same prob with AOE II. Check out my post. Someone really helped me out. I'll post the link. If it doesn't work, check out the topic (Hosting online games on LAN Possible? ) in the networking section.

Hope I can help

Did you open direct play ports through both your router and firewall. AOE uses direct play, so be sure to open those ports. Along with that, do a google search for AOE II ports and see what you find... You might have to manually open up the ports used for AOE. Like warcraft uses ports 2100-2300, so you might have to open ports simular. Let me know what you find
