Alrighty...Ive been having toubles playing wc3 w/my friends over lan. He uses a hub & everything seems to work fine for him & his friend. But whenever i get on wc3 i cant detect his games. Now i can share files & stuff w/him. But I just cant seem to figure out whats wrong here. I have all the protocols installed n junk but no dice. Its really quite a pain...been tryin to figure it out for quite some time now. So any help wld be awesome! Feel free to email me.

Software firewalls off (including Windows Firewall)??

Go to Blizzard's website; I'm sure they've got a good FAQ for this. You've probably got a software firewall turned on and need to open some of the ports - but if you're on a LAN I'd consider disabling the firewalls for the time that you're still secured or isolated from the internet.
