Hello all Windows 7 Forum-goers!
My problem is this: Whenever I play DOTA on a LAN, I drop out of the game about 2 seconds after the map loads. I can play just fine on Battle.net, but for some reason I drop out of LAN games once it loads. People can join the games I host and I can join their games, but once into it, I drop out. I have no idea what this could be, as I have a static IP set up and port forwarding as well (not that forwarding should be the issue anyways). I've got Windows firewall set up to allow it and I am running it in compatibility mode for WinXP SP2 as well as also running it as administrator. Needless to say, I'm at a loss for ideas.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
