    So, a friend of mine has Age of Mythology Titans installed on his Sony Vaio desktop which is running Windows XP SP3. He's able to play games online just fine. He's got a very fast Comcast cable modem Internet connection. His Sony has a wired connection to a Belkin G wireless router.

    His son recently installed Age of Mythology (not Titans or anything, just the "regular" one I guess) on his HP laptop which is running Windows Vista Home Basic or Premium (I forget which) with SP2 applied. His son can play online games just fine. This laptop has a wireless connection to the same Belkin B wireless router.

    The problem: if BOTH my friend AND his son try to play Age of Mythology online at the same time, only ONE of them can actually play and the other times out trying to connect to the Age of Mythology network server. If my friend is playing a game, his son will get the timeout. If his son is playing a game, he will get the timeout.

    I'm thinking there's probably a router issue involved but I'm not sure how to troubleshoot this.

    Any ideas? Is it possible to run two or more copies of Age of Mythology on different computers and have them play online games through a router concurrently?

    Additionally, when my friend plays Age of Mythology his son can play Xbox 360 online games at the same time without problems. In fact, they often play online games at the same time as long as his son is playing his Xbox 360 while he plays Age of Mythology on his PC.

    Thanks!

    Peace...

    Well, I found this page, which states this:
    So, I'm going to try the "hostPort" parameter and see what that does. :)

    Thanks!
