    Hey all,

    I have a LinkSys wireless router WRT45G and I have two machines on it sharing a DSL connection. Recently I have been attempting to use one of the machines to host games of Age of Empires 2 through game spy. Now to avoid the headache of the settings (which I experienced on MSN Zone) I just got one of my PCs under DMZ.

    When I host with the PC thats under the DMZ setting everything works fine my other computer on the network can join and play and so can others on game spy. But when I attempt to host using the other computer its a no go.

    I have read the help pages and opened everything they asked me and still the other PC cannot host. I know I have opened the ports as they stated and I know that the PC which I have done all that for has the correct IP address. I figure theres something that I might not know. So I wanted to ask you guys if you know anything I may be over looking.

    Also, I have ALL firewalls shut down. Any help would be appreciated at this point.
