That's weird. Best I can do, is to tell you to make sure the computers are networked correctly.


Have you tried swapping files through the network to make sure the network works?

I have yet to try this, but you should probably post this in the Tech Support Forum. You might get help here, but you might get quicker help in Tech Support. Might be a router/switch/hub setting...

Are you using a firewall?
Try disabling it if you are playing on a LAN with friends you don't need it

hold it, you're on a LAN, right?

Are you clicking on the LAN tab at the top of the multiplayer server listings? I think, by default, it's on "Internet"

I do that. When I'm playing on the Net, I look at the servers on the Internet tab. But when playing on my LAN, I click on the LAN tab, and they're there.
