The problem is that the game does not allow you to select the network card to be used as a LAN card, it will just choose the default card even if it was a USB modem or so.

So if you have trouble finding you LAN game session. try pressing “Home” in the game menu, from the Live popup menu click settings then Network information. Make sure that the default LAN adapter is your actual LAN network card. If not, here is how to change it.

On Vista, open the “Network and sharing center”

From the left pane select “manage network connections”

press the “ALT key” on your keyboard. the top menus will appear

Select “advanced settings” from the menu “advanced”

Use the arrows to move your LAN card up in the list then save everything.

You should be able to find your LAN sessions now. if not you will have to disable\disconnect all adapters but your LAN adapter.

There has been a big fuzz about this game being racist, its true that this is one of the rare games that allows you only to shoot black people…. and dogs. but this is just a game right? you have shot thousands of white people in the previous versions of RE it would seem ok to shoot few infected black people? I think that just bringing up racism is racist? what do you think?
