O.P. network setup?
Hi, im trying to network together my two windows XP pro computers linking them through a router. I have run the network setup wizard on both and on one everthing appears to be fine other than i cannot access the other computer tho it recognises its there the other however will not allow me to see the rest of the network. I think it is a problem with the second computer. Neither have a firewall on them so that rules that out. I have tried re running the network wizard and that has done nothing to help the situation.

Any advise?

RE: network setup?
are you sure they don't have firewall turned on ???? (windows built in firewall, mite be on) try.....

start > network connections > local area connection (or what ever yours is called) > advanced (top tab) > setting >

then select off and press ok

RE: network setup?
do both computers have a valid IP and net mask? (something like 192.168.1.xx for IP and 255.255.255.0 for net mask) Also, do you have NetBIOS and/or NetBEUI enabled on both computers?
