I'm trying to set up lan games on 2 DELL computers at home. Regardless of which computer I set up as the lan host, the other computer can't find any servers on the "Find lan games" page. I know that the networking hardware is ok, because racing games work fine. I've done a full UT install on both machines. Is there a particular protocall I need to install for the network cards? I'm using Linksys Combo EtherPCI Lan Card IIs. I hope that I'm just overlooking something simple, but I can't seem to figure it out.
HARDWARE:
Computer 1: Dell PII 450, 128mb ram, Creative Annihilator Pro GeForce 256, Direct X 7.0a
Computer 2 :Dell PII 400, 256mb ram, 3dfx Voodoo3 2000 AGP,Direct X 6.?
I'm afraid I'm a little slow, so step by step help would sure be appreciated, but any help at all would be welcomed.

UT uses TCP/IP protocols.

To add this protocol, open your Network Neighbourhood properties then select Add->Protocols->Microsoft->TCP/IP->then OK.

Now open the TCP/IP properties for your Ethernet Adapter and specify both an IP and a Subnet mask.

NB. The subnet masks must be the same but your IP address must be unique
ie, IP = 10.138.80.### where ###= a unique number
Subnet Mask = 255.255.252.0
