    Multiplayer problems

    When I try to start a LAN-server (or join some other) the game complains that I don't have a valid tcp/ip address. But I do have a network card with an adress. Anyone else who have experienced this problem? I don't have a cable plugged in and think it maybe can be because of that, But I thought it would work anyway.

    Unless you have a wireless network, you will need a cable plugged in your network card in order to join and host a TCP/IP game.

    In the network settings, check if DHCP is switched off. Then assign an IP address 192.168.1.x with x being an unused number in your network, being 1-254. Check that by executing "ping ipaddress" in a dos box or via start->execute. If you get no reply, the number is unused. Then set the network mask to 255.255.255.0.

    WinXP service pack enables the builtin firewall. It's crap IMO, so switch it off and get a better one, e.g. Sygate's. Also check if your firewall allows incoming connections to port... erm, I forgot the port number.
