Networking problems (data)

Hi guys, I've started multiplayer in my game but I've also come across several problems.
Specifically I have a problem with sending and receiving data (client can connect to the server if anything). I don't know however where my problem lies. Here's my chunk of code for object SERVER in Async - Networking:
Code:
var socketlist=ds_list_create();
  var n_id = ds_map_find_value(async_load, "id");
if n_id == server_socket
    {
    var t = ds_map_find_value(async_load, "type");
    switch(t)
        {
        case network_type_connect:
            var sock = ds_map_find_value(async_load, "socket");
            ds_list_add(socketlist, sock);
            break;
        case network_type_disconnect:
            var sock = ds_map_find_value(async_load, "socket");
            ds_map_delete(socketlist, sock);
            break;
        case network_type_data:
            //Data handling here...
            break;
        }
    }
    
  var t_buffer = buffer_create(256, buffer_grow, 1);
buffer_seek(t_buffer, buffer_seek_start, 0);
buffer_write(t_buffer , buffer_u16, 1);
buffer_write(t_buffer , buffer_string,"Hello");
//More data here...
for (var i = 0; i < ds_list_size(socketlist); i++;)
    {
    network_send_packet(ds_list_find_value(socketlist, i), t_buffer, buffer_tell(t_buffer));
    }
buffer_delete(t_buffer);

  var n_id = ds_map_find_value(async_load, "id");
if server_socket == n_id
    {
    var t_buffer = ds_map_find_value(async_load, "buffer");
if (t_buffer)="buffer" {    var cmd_type = buffer_read(t_buffer, buffer_u16 ); }
    var inst = ds_map_find_value(socketlist, sock );
    switch (cmd_type)
        {
        case (1):
            //A key has been pressed so read the keypress data from the buffer
            draw_text(612,384,t_buffer);
            instance_create_layer(306,128,"Player",obj_player_barbarian);
            break;
//        case HEALTH:
            //The player has taken a hit so remove health from them
//            break;
        //etc...
        }
    }
And for the CLIENT object (also Async - Network):
Code:
var socketlist=ds_list_create();
  var n_id = ds_map_find_value(async_load, "id");
if n_id == client_socket
    {
    //We have a new packet from the server
    }
    
  var t_buffer = buffer_create(256, buffer_grow, 1);
buffer_seek(t_buffer, buffer_seek_start, 0);
buffer_write(t_buffer , buffer_u16, 1);
buffer_write(t_buffer , buffer_string,"Hello");
//More data here...
network_send_packet(client_socket, t_buffer, buffer_tell(t_buffer));
buffer_delete(t_buffer);

  var n_id = ds_map_find_value(async_load, "id");
if SERVER.server_socket == n_id
    {
    var t_buffer = ds_map_find_value(async_load, "buffer");
if (t_buffer)="buffer" {    var cmd_type = buffer_read(t_buffer, buffer_u16 ); }
    var sock = ds_map_find_value(async_load, "socket");
    var inst = ds_map_find_value(socketlist, sock );
    switch (cmd_type)
        {
        case (1):
            //A key has been pressed so read the keypress data from the buffer
            draw_text(612,384,t_buffer);
            instance_create_layer(612,128,"Player",obj_player_marine);
            break;
//        case HEALTH:
            //The player has taken a hit so remove health from them
//            break;
        //etc...
        }
    }

What am I doing wrong?
