AOE 2 LAN playing problem

I've been playing AOE : conquerors over our campus LAN for a long time.. and it works in Vista properly. I recently put windows 7 and everything got screwed.

If I host the game, others cant join. If others host, I cant even see the game.
I somehw tried to fix it... one way is some1else has to host, then i choose
TCP/IP connection.. click Show Games... and type in the host's IP address... after that, I tried choosing LAN connections and waited for around 1 minute... and the game will appear.

UAC n Firewall n antivirus... all off. Win XP compatiblity mode.
Anyone knows a better solution??

Wait til the Actual Windows 7 releases then everybody will have the same version and updates and whatever else.

or Dual boot and run WinXP SP3

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

I'd suggest running it in XP Mode, but you don't have your system specs filled in, so that may not be an option....depends on your hardware.
