I am trying to network my laptop and desktop at home. I have a NIC for each machine and installed Client for Microsoft Networks and TCP/IP on each machine. Also have the same workgroup name but different computer names. I assigned the laptop the IP 192.168.0.1 and the desktop 192.168.0.2. Now my problem is this. I can't seem to get TCP/IP working. I tried pinging the laptop from the desktop and got Destination Host Unreachable. So i used ipconfig and noticed the IP address was 0.0.0.0. Can anyone help me figure out what is wrong with my setup?
