Windows 7: Windows 7 64x PRO Games + Network issues

Windows 7 64x PRO Games + Network issues


In many games over the past few days such as Dawn of War, and Warcraft 3 Frozen Throne, the games are not able to connect to the network, even when I have internet and can connect to network computers. At one times this did work, I was able to connect to the network and play online / lan games. After a game of Warcraft 3 and shutting down the computer- the next morning or the next time I tried playing one of the games- I couldn't connect to the network. All the games tell me that: " Can't Connect To The Network". .....

My friend also as this problem with Windows 7 Home premium 64bit. I am unable to figure out why and what could cause this. All other games such as Left 4 Dead ..... all steam games are working!

Any ideas? I have searched online for ideas or anything but I couldn't find anything. I also tried removing the network adapter and reinstalling it making sure the driver was deleted as well.

My modem wouldn't really be my problem here due to the fact that I can't join a Lan game either. And this is at two different houses. I go to lans very often and its doing it every where I go.

Windows 7 x64 Pro

Wow that is weird indeed. I am running Win 7 Pro x64 myself and the only issue I have is with Operation Flashpoint Dragon Rising where I get dconned after a certain amount of time over the network. And the reason is the game is quite damn buggy. I have noticed though games definitely run less smoother than they did in the RC. It could also be **** drivers from Nvidia because playing Batman becomes nearly impossible from memory leaks.
