LAN gaming with no internet access?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

This thanksgiving me and a few family members are going camping out in the desert and want to play a few games like Terraria and such together. Since there's probably no 4g internet out there would setting a phone as a hotspot work? I get that we wouldn't be able to go online but can we still connect and play?

What would work best is connecting via a powered network switch so that the computers can all play on the same intranet

And the switch + some ethernet cables would be all I need to set up a network?

LAN is literally local area network. It doesn't need connection to internet. Just switch for PCs to see each other in same network. Same way former Tek Syndicate had HighLANder set done.
