Hello i am at my wits end trying to get this working but its all a bit beyond me. All help and suggestions gratefully received. thanks

My brother plays a lot of games. His computer is attached to mine via a network cable. My computer is the gateway and he shares my internet connection (cable) He uses software like Qtracker and Hyperlobby to connect to games. Up until last week everything was ok and worked as it should. Since then for reasons unknown to me he cannot ping the servers and they time out. His internet connection however is fine. Qtracker etc works fine on my computer and also on his when he connects directly to the internet (thus putting me off line as we only have one modem) oh its a motorloa surfboard modem. Not a router or anything. It must be something to do with my network settings. Can anyone suggest anything that might get him back playing games online? It's destroying him not getting online.


Thanks

Reg

try to check your firewall setting or even call your ISP and see if they have their own firewall on your connection

thanks power2thepeople. I have tried it with no Firewall running at all and also everything is fine if both computers connect directly to the modem so ive a feeling that it wouldnt be either of these suggestions. Is there something else possibly in windows that might be stopping it?

thanks
