Unable to join Age of Empires 3 multiplayer game
  

Hi,


I trying to play Age of Empires 3 multiplayer game on lan. I am running the game windows 7 on one computer and the other with windows xp connected through a router and firewall for Microsoft between machines. I tried everything I can, including turning off the firewall, but I can not play between the two machines. The XP creates the game, the Win 7 you can see the game, but when I click Add and the screen can not join game. Everything else on the network works well. Can you tell me why I am not able to join Age of Empires 3 multiplayer game. Any suggestions ???

When you start Age of Empires, other software may start with the operating system. These programs (including antivirus and system utility) can sometimes disrupt the game This may cause your return to the desktop, displaying an error message during a multiplayer session, or blocking the game When you restart the computer clean before starting the installation program, you prevent these programs from starting automatically. Perhaps the manufacturer has released a firmware update for the router that fixes a specific problem for a particular game or simulation. Updating firmware can also extend the functionality of the device or to improve its performance.

I have the same issues while playing Age of Empires 3 multiplayer game online. My problem is that I am not able to play an online game session. I frequently get disconnected while playing the game. I have checked my internet connection, it gives me proper speed. Then why I am not able to play constantly ???

A game with multiple users running at the speed of the connection or computer game slower. To view information on the scores and game performance of all players in the game, click the S in the lower right corner of the game screen. To reduce network latency, close the game, log Zone, restart your Internet connection and then restart the game.

There are three basic types of broadband connections: a direct connection, the connection with a router and share the Internet connection. Typically, such connections using additional hardware (such as an external modem, router, switch, hub or firewall). Connect to the Internet directly, To determine whether the problem is caused by network equipment, connect to the Internet directly, using only the DSL or cable modem or refer to your router manufacturer for information about setting up the perimeter network (also known as the demilitarized zone, DMZ or screened subnet).
