Anyone attempting to connect to a LAN hosted game sees 127.0.0.1 as the server address. You can change what is displayed to something else, but the internals seem to always override back to 127.0.0.1! Frustrating.

Re: How To Host
I have a Wireless router, and the LAN should be accessable. My computer uses 188.8.131.52 as the default host address, however, folks using my LAN see the address as 127.0.0.1, which is the loopback address. Changing it on the user's address in "Connect to Networked Game" does not work. Anyone know what is missing here?
