1. Check firewall settings.
2. Check port settings on router.
3. Seek someone else cause I'm out of ideas. :undecided:

Check if the computers are even networked to begin with. The computer that connects to the net should be one of the following IPs: or (depending on your internet connection that PC may see the router as Your second computer should also have the same IP (except the last number should be different). If it is a completely different number (like, for example), they aren't networked to each other. Also try a different network cable in case the cable you have is faulty.

I'm sure there are other things that can be done as well like running the network setup wizard on both machines (making one the main server on a network and the other connect to that computer for internet and networking reasons).

If you are using Windows XP SP2, you have to either make an exception for D2 in the firewall settings, or turn off the firewall all together. This solved my issue when I had similar problem.

Do you have seperate cd keys on the two computers?

Correct me if I'm wrong anyone, but I believe you have to have seperate copies of the game for them to connect.

If you do have seperate cd keys, ignore my post.. it's something else and I don't know...

I'd probably start by checking that the two computers are actually networked to each other.

Can the first computer see the second computer in a windows explorer window?

If this doesn't work, then try to ping one computer from the other.

If this doesn't work, then try to ping your router from both computers.
