    I have the same problem, if the game does show up on other computers you click on it, it sits there then says cannot join specified game. And I made sure it was allowed thru the firewall. No luck still, got the new patch and everything, it used to work and now it won't. Any ideas?

Do you use a firewall?
If yes, have you tried it while your firewalls are deactivated (on both computers)? If it works with the deactivated firewall, find out whether the firewall prevents the application from using the network (unlikely) or whether it prevents specific ports from being used.

Without any applications running, start a cmd window.
Type "netstat -a" (without the quotes).
Now start Warcraft and create a new LAN game (server).
Start a second cmd window, type "netstat -a".
The new server should now be visible as one or more "LISTENING" entries.
If not, Warcraft may not be working properly.

You may also have to create you game in a different way from when you create a game for the internet.

I search the '' Perfect MMORPG''what is?

Definition: MMORPG is an acronym for Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game. These are role-playing games where thousands of gamers play online in a virtual and persistent environment on the Internet.
Usage: If you have a natural tan, you probably aren't a hardcore MMORPG player.

A Massively-Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game. An online game that is very similar to windows 95 with ICQ and a fantasy background. Double-click everywhere to kill an endless stream of monsters in a fantasy world and gain new powers. Do this for hours on end while chatting with someone named "Drizzt23" or "MikethePike" about where in Korea or France or Alabama you live and what was on TV last night. Contrary to the name, these games do not feature role-playing, so don't worry. Perfect for people who are too slow for Counter-Strike, and with no friends or imagination for role-playing. A: "Caleb played 34 hours of Lineage 2 this weekend!"
B: "Wow, how many levels did he gain?"
A: "That was amazing, he gained 4 levels!! Unfortunately, he got a cramp in his mouse-finger and had to quit."
B: "Awesome, he's a true role-player!"

Please check our network connection advance properties and make sure that the proper services are enable "File Sharing", "Network Sharing". Once you have done this reboot. Next you will need to check on the vista machine the security settings of the windows firewall. It's likely you will need to reduce the level of protection and allow the network protocols.
