Topic Subject:How to set up multiplayer using LAN cable

A few years back I was able to play the original AoE (1997 version) in multiplayer with my partner at home via the internet TCP/IP Connection for direct play option. Now we can't seem to connect up to play.
I remember needing to set up a workgroup? And having to change our IP addresses to make it work we are needing to do this all without internet access btw.
We are running Windows XP and Windows 7. If anyone has a step by step for a couple of oldschool gamers it would be greatly appreciated!

I remember playing like that when I was younger, but eventually me and my brother moved over to play online on GameRanger because it was much easier to set up, even though we were on the same network.
