ICS & games

By rbroome ·
I have a pc with TWO nics, one NIC has a tcp/ip of 192.168.0.1 for the home network,
the other has an ip assigned by my isp. This nic is connected to the cable modem.
the home nic is connected to the hub. The problem is when I try a networked gameeither as a host or trying to join a game, I cannot connect or the other playes cannot see this pc. If i try any other two pc's together, no problems. what can i do short of getting another pc to act as a comms server?

Connect your cablemodem into your hub's IN or LINE port and you won't need the other NIC at all.

Have you tried to add a secondary IP address to the computer? That way if there is a conflict with one IP it will look to the other. If that doesn't work try to troubleshoot w/ the home networking in your OS.
Good Luck to you!
