MERCs-- hosting AND playing on two PCs-- can it be done?

Post by Questioning Guest » Tue Jul 22, 2003 11:30 am

Not clear on this, perhaps someone can help me understand:

With DX9 and a Linksys BEFSR41W router (latest firmware) you can get two PCs sharing a DSL connection to join and play on a MERCs ZONE game hosted by someone else, but you can't use one of your PCs to host a MERCs ZONE game and the other to join it?

If I understand this correctly, my question is-- why can't you host with one PC and and play with the other at the same time? Is this a limitation of DX9, or of the Linksys router?

And if it is hardware, will any Linksys model allow for this? I am getting a WRT54G in a few days....

If it does not work then it is a limitaion of the Linksys.
