Hey,
me and a friend have been playing aoe (1.0c update) for like 4 days thru TCP/IP connection, i have a cable modem and router (linksys) so i had to set the DMZ host for it to work, and he has dialup aol...Now the connection is really fast for him, and really slow and choppy for me.... and every few minutes it might like freeze for me and then come back... someimtes it stays frozen and says trouble communicating with him... So i restart my computer, and we play again..But it did that once, and now when he types in my IP, and clicks show games, no games appear, I'm puzzled as to how to fix this, I've tried reconnecting both our interenets, resetting the modem and router, resetting all my net settings, If anyone can help me, please do......

Hmmmm... :S I'm afraid I can't help you. Except sometimes...and I do mean sometimes....a game screws up. The problem might not be anything else but the game. And sometimes the problem solves by deleting the registry files (always backup!!!).

I've had a game screw up big time on multiplayer, everytime I hosted a MP-Game it just went to my desktop, and I couldn't find the problem. I deleted the registry files and it worked fine. Note that you'll have to redo all settings, if you backup your registry files and the game doesn't work at all...just import the backup and it's back to the original state. (Before importing, you should delete the files that the import would change...)

If you're not very familiar with registry files and regedit I wouldn't start on this

Since you don't know where the problem is, you might wanna try...
