Ok, Only asking because this happened to me in the past until I bought a
decent router. Are you using a router, and does it have loop back
capability? I was using a Belkin router, and without loop back my
friend could log in, but like you waited forever for region handshake.
Then I bought a new D-Link Gamer Lounge with Turbo Boost. If you get
that router, be sure to turn off that feature. I am sharing my net with
my wife. The router gets confused as to who is on playing a game and
looses track of who should be getting the best bandwidth and messes
things up. But off and everything work beautifully.
thanks for this im using a new router and despite dmz and port forwarding
and the likes i cannot access stuff locally anymore yet to the www it works
fine so i will have to check my hosts file ty again )
