    Hello,

    We have a small lan on a DSL line at my residence. It works fine we have a 4 computer lan. We have a 1 port linksys router that goes into 5 port 10/100MBs switch. Everything seems good and we can play most online games together.

    The problem is we all like to play starcraft maybe some of you can relate :D. Anyways, we log on to Battle.net and we can join the same channel but when we try to enter into the same online game it wont allow us to. We can play on the lan fine but not togeter online. I imagine it has something to do with the router but i cant figure out what, or even for sure if that is the problem. We also run into run into problems trying to send some data out using programs like IRC or when we tried to setup a webcam.

    Any help/information would be appreciated.

    It's because to the game server it looks like 4 sessions coming from one IP address and one port. I think you are pretty much out of luck unless you get static IP addresses for your LAN from your ISP
