    Hello, I just got a new computer and im using my Linksys WRT54G router to get internet. Theres this game called Delta force 2 that i like, but it wont let me join or host games, i went to there support site and this is what they gave me.
    I have no idea what to do here, i went to this site
    and tried to folow those steps, there pretty simple but i still cant join and host games, so i probably screwed up somewhere, can any1 help?

    Do you have a distinct ip address set for the machine that's doing the hosting/connecting? If you're using DHCP to get an IP address from the router, it may not be working as you expect it.

    You'll need to set a static IP for the machine your running the game on, and then set the IP in the port forwarding page to that IP. It should work by then.
