Age of Empires LAN IP
Posted on 2008-09-30
Playing Age of Empires III (with both expansions, war chiefs and asian dynasties) on a LAN. There are four players, three of which can connect one to the other, but I cannot connect to anyone nor can they to me, whether through the LAN room join, or direct IP join. We can, however, all see each others games.
We are all running on mac's and using leopard. We've tried both wired and wireless, and we are on a Linksys WRT54G router. When I fire up my game, my IP address - in game - is constantly 192.168.2.1, whereas the other three players, in game, have IP's corresponding to their actual computer IP's, such as 192.168.0.10x or .1.10x, etc..
I've attempted changing the third router octet to 0, 1, and 2. All of our macs renew IP's properly, and in game they reflect the proper IP, however my game constantly reads 192.168.2.1....I also tried reinstalling the game, and creating a new profile (with fresh preferences), however the 192.168.2.1 IP still pops up in game, contradictory to my actual computer's IP. The other three players are running the same version as me, and have no issues with this.
Any thoughts as to why this might happen?
