Hi tech support guy's!

I currently have ADSL set up in my student house. Basically we have an ADSL / Modem Router that connects to a LinkSys router which acts as a switch so I can distribute the ADSL connection to 5 other computers in the house. Everything is perfectly fine with the Internet connection.. however.. we are all big Unreal Tournament players and would like to be able to play against each other.

Basically my question is how do we play against each other? I thought that we should just be able to connect to the hosts computer by typing in their IP address <ie 10.0.0.13> but this seems to do nothing. Also if you click the "Find LAN games" button nothing shows up in the server list. I'm sure there must be a way to do this.

Also shouldn't you be able to type in the run dialog box:

\\computer-name

and be able to access the shared files of that particular computer? This doesn't work either.

Any help would be most appreciated, thanks

first of all if you wnat to ake sure that you are on the same network can you ping his ip address , also ifyou wanna look at files on his comp you will need to do file sharing on that computer.
