Issue with playing L4D2 or TF2 with friend on same server from the same network

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ever since I've been playing TF2, my girlfriend is rarely able to get into the same game as me. She can play on a different servers fine but if I connect to a server and then she try's to connect to the same one it says connection lost. Sometimes, very rarely, we are able to get into the same game. I thought this may be a Tf2 issue but we just started playing l4d2 and we can't get in any games together. It always times out on either side. We can get in a lobby together but, as soon as it starts one or the other times out.

Any ideas of what this could be? Thanks.

Router problems? Maybe you need to port forward?

Maybe. I found this article.

I guess I should forward them to my computer?
