I have two machines:
1 Dell XPS T 700R
1 No BRand Penium 4 1.4GH
The Dell is connected to the Minihub
The P4 is also Connected to the minihub
A Cable goes from the Minihub in (Uplink Mode) to a DSL Modem.
There is no Collision and both computer access the Internet Properly.
I set the Workgroup name as "Workgroup" (I even try changing the names several times) on both Machines.
Both machine have:
- "Client for Microsoft Network"
- "Microsoft Family logon"
- "File and printer Sharing for Microsoft"
They both requires a different password at logon (just in case it matters) . I tried everything.
Both PC have at least one folder set with Sharing capability.
I tried all kind of combination with the Cables.
the best that I get is each computer listing their own icon on the Network Neighborhood. When clicking to entire network it gives me a blank listing.
I am running out of options. They are connected since they both access the internet. They act like they are not on the same Workgroup. Even though they are. Will changing the Netcard make a difference ?, any softare setting I am missing. The process is usually pretty straightforward especially on only 2 machines. Grr. :-(
Please help. I am stuck and need to get this resolve ASAP.
Thank you for your help and complete details of the different optiond and troubleshooting.
