    Hello Tech Guys

    Ok i have an existing setup downstairs consisting of one PC with a standard virgin media broadband modem on the 10mb package -Ill call this PC1. Ive recently bought another pc for upstairs (PC2) and iv dug up a netgear wireless modem/router (which came with 1st PC but never used it) which iv attached to my existing modem downstairs and using the disc that came with the wireless modem i installed it on PC 1.

    I got a wireless adapter and installed it onto PC2, plugged it in and it works fine.

    I play IL2 online with no problems connecting to other servers.

    But when i try to play football manager online as i have done for years dowstairs on pc1, and it wont let me connect to other games or let them connect to me !

    Also in hamachi a friend told me i have a warning triangle next to my virtual ip address so i know something isnt quite right

    Any help please ???

    Ive allowed the game through firewall and all the usual steps

    i think this is a case of two modems confusing any incomings and outgoings

    Thats as far as my tech knowledge goes im afraid.


    Thanks
