Is that wireless? Both are operating on Windows XP. I cannot connect with wires computers on different floors of the house. So can I do this through my wireless connection? Thanks.

Since you have networking working you would not need networking advice.

I have not played Age of Empires but multiuser lan games are pretty much the same.

In one of the game configuration screens is the option to play standalone or multiuser. If you choose multiuser you then have the option of creating a game [hosting] or connecting to a hosted game.

On the pc of your choice host the game. On the other pc join the game.

Pretty simple once you find the right screens.

Okay, so now my question I need to install the game on the "guest" computer. Not the host one? If that's the case. I'm in trouble cause I only have the one game disc. Thanks.

Depends on the game specs. Some allow you to install on both but only the hosting machine requires the cd.

Yep and btw here is a link to the rules of the forums.

"crack" is also something we don't talk about here :-)

SunnyB25 how to play multiplayer game at home should be covered in the games documentation. If you don't have the manual anymore search for it online.
