Lasko2,

I got your PM.

If both computers are accessing the internet without problems, then they both should be able to communicate to each other over your internal network. I am not familiar with the game you're trying to set up so I can't provide any detailed help there. But if you're able to do a ping to each other (laptop to desktop and vice versa) then there shouldn't be anything stopping the game from setting up a peer to peer connection. If you can't get the pings to work, then you need to look at other possible causes. One of the most common issue that causes this is having Windows Firewall or some other software firewall running on your computer. Look to see if any software firewall is turned on and disable it to see if this fixes your gaming issue.

If you have file sharing working between the two computers, then the network configuration on both PCs are correct. Beyond this, I don't know as you'll need to research what you need to do with the game to get a gaming server and client configured.
