I want to play Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3 online and I need to fill in some stuff. I went to an FAQ online on how to set it up and it said this.


"Q. I am an @Home customer and am unable to connect.

A. In the NETWORK PLAY options, make sure you set the HOSTNAME to match your computer name. You can find your computer name in the Identification tab of your Network Properties."


Keeping in mind I have Windows XP, where do I find my Computer Name????

Also, I have @Home

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and assume XP is similar to ME in many respects, though I haven't used XP....

Go to Start / Settings / Control Panel, and double-click Network (or Network Settings, or something similar).

With the Network box open, click the Identification tab. Your computer name will be listed there.

If these menu items don't look right, you should have something similar somewhere!

You can also (again in Windows ME) start the System Information Tool. On the System Tab, click Details. Expand the OS section, and you will also see the Computer Name there.

Hope this helps! THought I'd try since you hadn't had any XP experts respond yet.
