I cant seem to figure out what is wrong here?  I have 4 computers, 2 with XP Pro, and 2 with win 98 they are connected via a linksys wireless access point / switch, all can see the internet, but none can see eachother? Each is assigned its own ip address via the router but I cant ping any of them from another computer?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Make sure under 'connection properties' for each PC's connection you have selected 'client for microsoft networks' and also under 'connection properties > TCP/IP properties' you have selected 'use netbios over TCP/IP'.

Also, do you have a firewall? If so, switch it off for testing as this can block ICMP 'ping' traffic.

When you are pinging, are you pinging the other machine by IP address or machine name?

If you're trying by name, the NetBIOS name resolution may be mucked up. If you can't even ping by IP address, it's more interesting. You need to check the IP range and netmask of the machines to make sure they are all on the same IP subnet (which they should be if they are getting their setip from DHCP).

1: make sure thay are all in the same Workgroup
2: Make sure that you put the I.P. address of the Router into the Gateway section.
3: To access the XP machine, you will need to set up user accounts for the other PC's to gain access.

Good Luck.

Mike.
