    we currently have 2 computers set up in my house, both connected to the internet through an adsl router. my computer (computer A) works fine for internet and internet/lan games. computer B however is set up retardedly.

    - it can connect to the internet fine
    - it cant play lan/internet games in some cases
    - can connect to world of warcraft (internet game)
    - cant connect to MOHAA (another internet game)
    - cant play warcraft 3 or MOHAA over LAN
    - has 2 network cards for some reason, both show up in the network places thing
    - in some cases cant access other computers
    - sometimes internet lags out and just sits there

    we have screwed around with the settings trying to get it to work but at the moment the above conditions is where we are at now. at the moment we have network card A set up with TCP/IP and all that, automatic IP address but put in our dns settings. network card B is enabled but unticked all the protocols/services/clients in the properties. it isnt my computer so i havent screwed with the settings much. any ideas on how we can get the gaming to work?
