    Hi I am trying to connect to my friend to play aoe2 the expansion and am having some problems. As Microsoft appear to be a bunch of cheap [email protected]#%s and have retired the gaming lobby on the zone I am trying to connect through ip to my friend who is on a wireless router. When he searches for games I hosted with my ip none come up. I have added the port 47624 Incoming, as it says to do on the microsoft support website.(http://support.microsoft.com/kb/895864/en-us) Also I am using the windows exp firewall and it is allowing age of empires 2. I tried disconnecting my Linksys wrt54g router and my friend was able to see and join my game but I need the router for my other computer. Until today I had no idea how the ports work so my knowledge of them is still very basic. Thanks in advance, Morgan.

    Well, I like the age of empires 2 too. I often play it with my brother at home by using network, and sometimes we can't search each other also. Then we restart the game and the problem disappear. There is nothing wrong about firewall. Maybe you could change another router, and try it again! Hope this helps.

    Regards.(y)
