OK. I have 3 computers networked through a Linksys Network Everywhere router with cable access (Roadrunner). I have a computer with Win ME (don't ask why) and I have Kazaa on it, and Kazaa will connect and run fine. However, when I try connecting to Kazaa on the other 2 computers in my house that have Win XP on them, it just stalls on the Connecting... part of the program. **READ ON: I'M NOT ASKING YOU TO SOLVE THE KAZAA PROBLEM**

Now, whenever I try to connect to Everquest on the computer with Win XP, I get this error message:


EverQuest file update failed. If the problem persists, contact your network administrator or internet service provider for assistance.
(patch.everquest.com:7000TCP)


* ERROR *: A request to send or receive data was disallowed because the socket is not connected and (when sending on a datagram socket using a sendto call) no address was supplied.

I've tried plugging directly from the modem into my box and I still get this error message. I've ran searches ALL over the net for that error code, and I never got an answer to my question. Now, another issue that might help is if you all are familiar with Steam (Counterstrike 1.6), that won't connect to the patch server either. I also remember seeing an error code 10051 (or something close to that) while trying to connect to an update server.

I have multiple hard drives, but I only have a Win 98 disc, and I don't even think that's an install disc. So, if anybody could please help me out, explain what's wrong, that'd be awsome.

I think the part you're forgetting is that you need to open ports on the router for these applications to work. I see Everquest says something about TCP7000, my guess is it's trying to receive on TCP port 7000, and nothing comes in.
