NFS most wanted problem on playing LAN. Host receives error "Connection lost".

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a problem with the game Need for speed Mostwanted. Whenever anybody on our network hosts the lan game (start new server), after some time he recives error "Connection lost with the server". We also installed new patch v1.3 but having same problem. I noticed an other thing when the internet connection is on (Dialup internet connection), only that time i can host the game successesfuly and we play it but data trnsfers from lan connection. When the internet connection is off i cannot host the game same error appears. I read some where i have to add UDP port 9442. But i dont know how to add the port, i added it in the exceptions of connection firewall from button "Add port" but having same problem.

One more thing. We set IP address of Lan conncetion manually (e.g. use the folowing ip address. 111.111.111.1). If we want to set obtain ip address automatically the lan connection does not get a IP address and after some time it gives error "Fail to aquire a Ip address limited or no connectivity". And when we see our Ip address there is no Ip address in Lan connection 0.0.0.0 . Plz tell me how can i set ip address automaticaly instead of setting it manulay. Plz help me in both matters.
Thanks

I wanna know too! Same problem... can't host lan games. I also don't have internet connection there... no lan without internet? That would piss me off...


What ip adresses concerns: I think you have to choose them manually... but where's the prob?
1st machine: 192.168.1.1
2nd machine: 192.168.1.2
3rd machine: 192.168.1.3 etc...

hm, i just set up a LAN for a bunch of n00bs. I had the problem with the router, cause it wasnt giving away any Standard Gateway for me to configure it. That way, i didnt manage to set the standard "Automatically send out IPs over DHCP bla bla bla", and had to write all the ips manually. Im know just a little bit about networking, see if you can find some network freaks here, i would like to know that too

EA doesn't work well with routers of any kind. A couple of their games have a history of not even working with certain routers
