Networking problems, Computers not on network? + Router Firewall Question.
Posted on 2004-08-24
Hi, my roommate and I have a link sys 4 port 10/100 router hooked up to a cable modem. With the router we can both access the internet, but we have tried to set up a network to share files and nothing will work. I am running xp pro and my roommate is running xp home. in the network we have set up we can each see ourselves in the network, but we can't see the other person. We both are on the same workgroup too. We also cant play any network games or anything. We have tried so many different things that people have told us, so many that dont work or we just dont know what they all do. We also wanted to know how to enable and disable the routers firewall. There are just so many settings and things we know some basic stuff but not enough to get this working it seems. Im not sure what else I need to say but if im missing information then just ask for it.
Any help would be great.
Forgot to say the model number on our router is NR041
