Networking

I need to put my brother's computer onto the Internet cause we want to play Warcraft III on B.Net. I have an extra Network card but it's an ISA card and I don't have any ISA slots. My brother's computer have a network card. His computer is in the next room and I can't move the cable modem there. I have a passive hub handy. How can I network the 2 computers to go on the internet? Router needed? Or swap the computer towers so he could have both network cards? I would prefer not to swap the towers though

the quickest and easyest solution is to buy a router. Other solutions include setting up one of the computers as a router, and using the hub as connector between your computer and his.

I'm also trying to hook up my PCs to play wcIII, but I already have a router.

I'm actually trying to find a way to connect through VPN to use my own local network so that I won't have to go through B.Net. Anyone has suggestions on getting this to work. I've tried just about everything... still no luck. I'm not giving up though. I can see the machines connected to the same network, but no LAN game.

Do you have an IPX protocal set up? I played Starcraft over a LAN before.

How are the headlight covers btw? I hope you're taking care of them

ahh I knew I had a thread in here that I had to check on!

I do have IPX set up. and along with a friend of mine we did figure out how to play over the VPN connection. The trick/problem is that you have to run the game on the VPN server for it to be available to everyone. the VPN server as far as I know, right now has to be win2k. But it did work, we're still working on figuring out whether or not we can change it to not have to be running on the vpn server.

re: headlight covers

I've actually been too chicken to put them on while driving. I haven't been out for fun in a while. I don't want to get stopped while on my way to work, so one of these weekends coming up, I'll be sporting them.
