Trouble networking with Windows XP and ME
Posted on 2004-03-26
I am trying to set up a network with 3 computers - 2 PCs (one with XP the other ME) via cables and a laptop (ME) by wireless.
I am using a router/hub that also connects to broadband.
I started with the XP machine and made a network disc which I then ran on the other 2 machines.
The current situation is:
The XP machine can see itself and the other PC - but is denied access to the other PC.
The ME PC says Unable to browse network - however can 'see' laptop when I search for it
The laptop can't see any when browsing, but can find ME PC when I search.
I don't know whether it is anything to do with firewalls? ME PC has Norton Firewall, Laptop and XP PC have Zone ALarm.
Any advice please?
