PCMCIA/IPX Gaming Issue

  1. I think this is a hardware problem, but we'll see what you guys think. I am trying to play Red Alert 2 w/ 1.006 patch (latest), it's an IPX game. I was trying to play over Wireless (802.11b) through a PCMCIA card, I'd get in the lobby and see the game, but when I click on join the game freezes and it never loads. So I thought, "okay, maybee this is just a wifi issue" so I tried it over my PCMCIA 10/100 network card using cat-5 cable with the same results. The computer has a built in NIC but it cuts in and out so I cant use it cuz you lose connection during games, however point being I can start up the game that way, which doesnt make any sense to me. Why can I not play over PCMCIA. I already made sure that the IPX protocol is installed. Whats goin on here?

    Do you have IPX installed for the new cards? The protocol stack can be different for every network adapter in Windows.
