Just like old games to be run on XP, you will need to make Diablo II run in Windows XP compatibility mode.

After doing that, the single player works, but it is still unable to connect to battle net. Is there any way to fix this?

I would take a guess and look at the firewall. For testing purposes just disable the firewall and any other ones you have up and try to connect.

After disabling the firewall, it still has unable to connect to battle net. After trying two different disks, and installing Diablo II on a different computer with XP, it still has this problem. Is there a way to fix this? Will Diablo II work on the router, or will have to connect direct?

If you are connected through a router you will need to do port forwarding.

glad to be of service.

Just remember that if you install any software firewalls, like ZoneAlarm, you would have to allow the network traffic for the game in that program.

How do I access and set the game to Windows XP compatibility mode? Also can this be applied for playing mulitplayer on the first Diablo?

Right click on the game exe file, or the entry that in All Programs > Games, and click properties. The compatibility tab is there.

I'm not too sure what you mean about Diablo but if youi need to load the game, chances are it should work if you set the compatibility mode.
