Quick Question

I have two computers networked with a NAT router/Modem. The Server connects through ethernet and the client connects through USB. My MMORPG (Online Game for those who don't know) has stopped working on the Server so I tried the Repair connection, but I get an error message saying that TCP/IP is not enabled for the connection and it cannot be repaired, if TCP/IP Is disabled my game wont work, I never disabled it, but How do I go about enabling TCP/IP?

"have two computers networked with a NAT router/Modem. The Server connects through ethernet and the client connects through USB."

As far as I know this is an invalid setup and will never work. I think you and I went round and round about this one and your setup looks invalid.

Why not share the make/model of the "NAT router/Modem"? I've yet to find such a device.

Your network configuration is a litle odd. If I read correctly your client machine connects to the modem directly through USB and your Server via ethernet to the router? Confusing at best.

It's a Creative Broadband Blaster 8133U and is A ADSL Modem, it has NAT support, If your computer Doesent have an ethernet port U can use the USB INSTEAD, but I just use both to connect two different machines, and It works, they share files, Drives and A printer, It might be odd but It works for me. So how do I enable this TCP/IP

I believe this modem is an "either/or" device, where you use either the USB connector or the ethernet port, not both. Try adding a NIC (there are USB NICs available, http://www.directron.com/3c460.html) and use ethernet port solely.

Forget odd or may work, etc...

I will not re-read your first post, but will write that the USB connected machine will likely have no end of problems. If you believe it should work, then call Creative's support until you get it fixed.

For me, I just go with plain, boring setups that work well.

Dump the USB link.

You should have read my 1st post, It's the Ethernet machine with all the problems, The USB machine is fine!

No. I read it. The fact you use the USB port as well may trip up the device.

You need to move to plain and boring setups. Or call Creative support and see if they support this setup.

I know I'd never try this one.

Be sure to check the MMORG user forums.

In reply to: Re: Quick Question

Here's why.

A few want to play such games on home NAT/ROUTER networks, but not all games can play behind the NAT/ROUTER. It can have something to do with the fact you have only one IP address and the game was written at the time when NAT/ROUTERS were not widely used.

The common setup looks like a Cable/DSL Modem to the NAT/ROUTER/SWITCHED_HUB and the PCs/MACs wired to the NAT/ROUTER/SWITCH. I know it seems like what you have "should" work, but I've yet to see it be supported.

You may need to add something as simple as a 3-4 port switch. Using the USB-ethernet adapter (or adding a PCI NIC) on the non-ethernet machine, you should then be able to connect both machines to the NAT capable modem.

Why do you think this is a quick question ?

I read this thread and I agree with the replies. You never answered to this message and as I see you're still trying to use some odd configuration and at least in this subthread you begin to be aware of it.
