I was wondering if anyone else was having this issue, or if anyone can help me fix it.

I get Torchlight 2 installed on my computer and my wife's computer. I make a LAN game, and at first we could not connect to each other at all. We try all manner of rebooting steam/Torchlight 2 and finally she can connect to me.

Now she cannot connect to me at all. Just keeps saying connection failed again. But now I can connect to her LAN game for some reason..... Computers are literally feet apart, both connected to a router just a few feet away. Not wireless.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

you need to be part of the same homegroup.

As far as I know we are both part of the same home group.

What is confusing to me is last night after fighting with it she could finally connect to me, then after a break she couldn't so I had to connect to her, and now we can't connect to each other at all...

Wow, okay, I forgot that I had upgraded her computer recently, and I guess it got her off the home group. After I re-added her computer, I was able to instantly access my LAN game. Thank you so much for this assistance. Sorry about my last post, I was booting up her computer at the time and hadn't checked yet.

As long as it still works tonight when we try to play again, awesome. Thanks again.
