TCP/IP Problems I have a question about hosting a game using a router. Me and a friend are trying to play some tcp/ip games but we've having problems. I use a wireless connection on my laptop and my router gives me inside network ip's (like 192.168.whatever) Now if hes not on my network he cannot connect to the games I host. I even gave him my real IP and that doesn't work either. I also tried pluging into my router with an ethernet cable (not using the wireless) and it doesn't work either. My question is there a way I can host though my router, or do I need to unplug it and plug my cable line directly into my laptop. Thanks.
