Battlefield 1942 multiplayer problems

  1. Hello.

    I recently got an upgrade for my computer so I could play more games, and one of those games is Battlefield 1942. I wanted to play a multiplayer game on Battlefield 1942, but then it said "failed to connect to server". I disabled all my firewalls and antivirus protection, but still the same thing. I checked my internet connection, and everything was good. Is there a way to solve this problem? My system specs are in my profile, but for convience, I will put them right here:

    eMachines T2682(upgraded w00t!)
    Intel Celeron 2.60 GHz Processor
    Intel 845GV Motherboard
    768 MB DDR SDRAM
    PNY FX5500 128 DDR PCI Dual VGA
    Creative SoundBlaster Live! External USB 2.0
    Realtek 10/100 MBps Ethernet card
    Western Digital Model WDC800EB-11DJF0

    My system is capable of Battlefield 1942, and I have no problems playing it in single player.

    So, could it be my Ethernet Card? Also, I have SBC Yahoo! DSL and when I download stuff, I get about 160 KB/sec, I assume this is the DSL speed.

    Thanks for replies in advance!

    Go to My Computer, then My Network Connections. then View Network Connections, then disable your connection, enable it, repair it, restart your computer, repair it again and try re-connecting and playing.

    I dont believe that will work. (no offense) Considering I can still browse the internet, and I really dont like disabling my connection because it screws up my DSL modem and my router. Is there an alternative?
