Age of Empires II Multiplayer Issue

  1. Hey, here is the situation. Whenever I host a game of Age of Empires II (TCP/IP connection for DirectPlay), sometimes I get an issue depending on who is playing.

    Me (DSL) + Friend 1 (Cable) = Works Fine
    Me + Friend 2 (DSL) = Works Fine
    Me + Friend 3 (56k) = Works Fine
    Me + Friend 1 and 2 = Doesn't work
    Me + Friend 1 and 3 = Doesn't work
    Me + Friend 2 and 3 = Works fine

    In the situations that it doesn't work, it will just go to the loading screen and say it is waiting for someone. If any of my friends leave, the game starts up. From the information above, it seems like the problem is either with Friend 1's PC
    (joining with others) or mine (in hosting). Does anyone know how to fix something like this, if its portforwarding or with ISPs. Completely lost on how to fix this
