I realized the other day that my computer won't let me play LAN matches. When I try to host a game, it acts as if it works, but no one else on the server can see my game. When they host a game, I can see theirs and try to join, but the connection times out.

I can imagine this is either a firewall issue or the result of some odd network settings. If it helps at all, I built the PC myself, but it works perfectly on its own.

It may be the firewall issue - try disabling it once and see it this is working.

Best of luck.
