did you try to set your computer as DMZ host ?

if gamespyarcade check for internal and external IP , i think that you need to set your

the second computer will not be able to go on the internet when you play your game.

the computer set as the DMZ host is the only computer on the internet. when you disable the dmz , everythings come back normal.

Unfortunatly, I think that you don't have other choice than that
