I initially tried to connect via LAN but the other computer cannot see my game nor can I see theirs.

So I decided to log into live, but I cant do that either. I'm using the onboard nic card on the xfx680i MB, I've updated to the latest drivers but no go.

I've read the previous posts and it seems that GOW is very particular about which nic card it recognizes.

I've also updated the game as well as windows live.

I've disabled ALL of the firewalls on my computer including the windows firewall which is never on anyway.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do.
