I have the game Tiberian Sun and the Firestorm upgrade. I have it installed on our wireless network. It uses the IPX protocol. The multiplayer was working fine until I went online and was told about an automatic update to play on the internet. I upgraded the first machine and then wasn't able to play on the wireless network again. The upgraded machine can see the players on our network but the other one can't see the other players. I tried upgrading the second machine but I still have the same problem. I tried uninstalling on both machines and reinstalling so that it's the same original version on both but no luck. I turned off the firewall and still no luck. It seems as if the information is flowing in one direction; from the second computer to the first. Every other application works just fine across the network. I'm running Windows 98. I tried enabling NetBIOS over IPX/SPX on both machines with no luck (it wasn't enabled before). I changed the Frame Type from Auto to Ethernet 802.3 and then 802.2 with no luck. I also changed the Network Address value from 0 to 10 with no luck. Any suggestions?

Welcome to TSF... sorry about being so late. I just wanted to let you know that we have looked at your post, but I can only speak for me self here, but I'm stumped. It sounds like the uninstall didn't get everything, and the only way to find out would be to look at what all was installed and check each file individually, or wipe the Hard Drive and re-install... Neither of which are good solutions.... I haven't play C&C, so I have no idea of how to setup the LAN multiplayer.... I am however going to look around online and see if I can find anything that might help... I just wanted to let you know you weren't forgotten and we are trying to help.

Thanks for still looking for a solution

Thanks Valiant. I've got posts on 3 different websites, Westwood tech support (some non-thinking solutions), and tech friends. Even though I don't mind wiping the drive and starting over, I just got it to where I like it - Ya' know? Anyway, I used dxdiag.exe to test the network and there's no connection using IPX/SPX but TCP/IP makes it just fine. By summers end if there's no solution, I will go ahead and start from scratch.
