I hope this is under the right heading. If not I would be obliged if a mod would move it :)

Sooo. LadyJane and I have gotten new rigs - Toshiba Satellite A505-S603 laptops (identical). Got them both from Newegg. We also both have gotten Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. We also have gotten a d-link dgl-4500 gaming router. I am up an running and having a blast playing online with God knows who. LadyJane has been playing the single player until last night when we tried to play the 2 player co-op. Same game, same machine, same network, she can't connect to IW Net. We are both able to browse the web. I have done the google and search other forums. I made sure to open the right ports for MW2, and turned a few things on and off. I have set the UDP and TCP endpoint filtering to endpoint independent, disabled SPI and UPnP, and enabled multicast streams. I am still able to get on, she is not. There is nothing in the game itself that I can see to change how it connects to the web/ servers, so I suspect it's a router problem. Any help would be appreciated!

If you are not on, can she get on?

No, she couldn't. It dawned on me to try and connect her computer via ethernet straight to the modem, but I actually tried it ethernet to the router. That's where the game showed the NAT set for strict and led me to www.infinityward.com/nat (it wouldn't even do that before). There it said to turn the UPnP on. I did that, the router restarted, I started up the game again, and then I was able to get on. I then tried the co-op thing again, and we were up and running. We put the squirts to bed and then got on and played for a few hours, had a blast! I'm lucky to have a wife who likes gaming. Anyways, I have no idea why what I did worked, but it worked. It's great to be back fragging, but still miss the good ole COD:UO days.

We probably will get it, but it might have to wait for birthday in July. That'll make a good 40th b-day present, eh? BFBC2 for me and the wife? Having fun with MW2 for now, and I don't think much of any DP are playing it right now. Besides, Cosmic has scared me to death of it. He's funny as hell tho.

Not to be exclusive, but if we get Spidey, Bobo, Medic Ted, Meaty, Guy/Girl with a Gun, Vixen, OxDeadBeef, Buttercup, and of course, you, Furious (among others) - I might have to do some financial finagling to get it ;)
