    I want to set up a network so my friend who lives about 30 minutes away from me can connect to it so we can play games together via a Network (The online option for the game doesnt work anymore).
    1) Is this possible (we both use windows 7)
    2) How would i go about doing this?

    Thanks
    Tom

    You'll need to identify why the online option no longer works. Identify the game requirements and set your router and firewall settings accordingly. It will probably require you to have certain ports open and to make sure your firewall is not blocking the access. You would probably get more detailed help from someone who plays the same game online.
