Connot Play LAN Games

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi, It's not a major problem, but i'm unable to play LAN games in my home anymore, I have been disabling "windows 7 services" for a while now with no problems, so i assume it's 1 or more of these services that is stopping me from joining or creating LAN games.

Services i think? that are stopping me are:
Server
TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper
UPnP Device Host

Would anyone know exactly what services are needed for LAN gaming?
post #2 of 5
TCP/IP NetBIOS helps discover nearby WIndows computers
UPnP allows the connection of mapped network drives, not needed but can be useful - dont disable
Server - really? Why'd you disable this?


What else did you disable? Sounds like you killed off a lot more. I do this too, but my stuff actually works

I have heaps of services disabled & never had a problem, & i guess i got into the disabling services thing to much, but i have done research on most of them & i dont seem to need them, + i only play Games/Online & internet sufing/downloading.
