I finally got a wireless router after I realized I didn't have a crossover cable before. I got the router all setup and both my desktop and laptop are successfully on the internet.

Now I'm having problems trying to play games over a LAN. When playing one game, I can see the server on the network being hosted by the desktop, but I can't join with the laptop. Trying another game, I cannot see the server hosted by the desktop at all.

I can ping each computer from the other, but besides setting the router up, is there anything else I need to change so I can play games through a LAN on both computers?

There shouldn't be anything on the local router blocking traffic, but it may help to know the make and model of your router. Also, make sure you don't have any software firewalls running on your machines because that will block traffic.
