Can't connect to my brother's LAN world

Sometimes, we all need a little general help.

We are on the same connection, and I tried turning off both of our firewalls, but it didn't work. It keeps saying "Connection timed out:connect" Please help. OS windows 7 on both
Edit: We both have our own MC Premium accounts.

If your brother's server DOES SHOW on the list, try making sure that you have a good connection to your wireless router. If it DOESN'T SHOW, than try making sure Java is allowed to do stuff with your firewall over LAN.

Hope this works!

I can see it on the list, and I do have a good connection, it just keeps timing out.
Edit: Sould I be able to see how many people are on and the green connection bar like normal servers?

Well, this is a problem of 1 of my friends too. What we do is just make he send the map to his brother and it works fine.

So my tip: Make your brother send you the map you want to be on, and open the lan yourself.
