This is how to connect to a LAN server.

1. This is where it is a big break to everyone. You need to connect to the LAN servers internet. (Their Router) Why? The answer is because LAN stands for Local Area Network. Local in this instance means on the same internet, not like the whole town local. What minecraft needs to do is make a WAN button (Wide Area Network)

2. Open the LAN server on the minecraft world by pressing escape while on the world.

3. Whoever wants to get on the LAN server should go to the multiplayer option on the main menu.

4. Scroll to the bottom until you see: scanning for LAN servers

5. Once the LAN server appears ENJOY.

Many people don't know. Probably 200,000 out of 500,000 people on PMC are probably level ones. Half of the people on Minecraft probably thought that they could connect to anybodies LAN server.

Thank you. At first I thought that i could play with my neighbors, but I found out I had to connect to their internet so I put this up because many people would probably think they could play with anyone.
