I have two computers in my network, one is my mom's computer Dell Dimension 2350, Windows XP, which is directly connected to our router, a Linksys BEFW11S4, and my computer, Dell Dimension 2400, Windows XP, which connects to the router with a Wireless-B Network Adapter, Linksys WUSB11.

Now, the problem is that on my computer, as soon as I log into Japanese Maple Story (Bare with me now, it may sound like a game problem, but it isn't.), I get disconnected, but on mom's computer, it stays connected.

On both computers, I ran CMD, and typed "netstat -an", and it was then that I found exactly what was wrong: my computer was trying to connect through port 8484, my mom's was connecting through port 8585.

So, I knew what was wrong, but not how to fix it, but it really made no sense to me, seeing as it was installed on both computers the exact same way, from the exact same site. Also, the Global, or english Maple Story is also installed on this computer, and it connects through port 8585.

Anyway, I called Linksys tech support, but they have proven to be useless, they believe the problem is with the game, but as I said, both were installed the same way, on computers that are pretty much like. Not to mention that all the Maple Story setup programs for both versions do is configure the monitor settings. The problem lies within the wireless adapter or the computer.

Anyway, what I am basically asking is, how can I get this computer to use 8585 for the Japanese Maple Story client?
