Re: Games on EE broadband

Are you running a game server on your PC? What are you telling peeps where to connect to?

 

What network is your phone on?

Re: Games on EE broadband

The game server is on steams gaming servers online

my phone network is also EE, if I connect my pc up to my phone hotspot they have no issues joining my game however if I connect my computer to my home broadband they can’t join the game,

its as if something on my broadband settings is blocking connectivity of others to my games

Re: Games on EE broadband

Your game? Run on some remote server? You mean you start you own game on the Stream servers & invite others to join it?

 

There should be no issue with others joining that. Your EE BB doesn't come into it. Can you join games others start?
