Tiberian sun cant play on LAN

[ Edited ]

I cannot play Tiberian Sun on the LAN setting; patches I have tried to install want me to have a disk to insert into the drive, but as the collection has no disk, that doesnt can I fix this ?


I am trying to play my son online, but when we play on the Internet mode one of us never appears in the game, causing the game to default against the other and it becomes a computer player, so we are hoping LAN play will solve this.   Any idea why we cant seem to play on Internet mode? 

He is on his computer ( wireless laptop ) and I am on a wired desktop.    Reply to [Email Removed] please, thanks !
