can ping and share internet, but can't see other computers
Posted on 2004-10-17
I have set up a home network between one PC and two laptops all running XP pro. One laptop is working fine and can share folders and files, access the internet through the PC and print to the PC's printer.
The other laptop is connected to the network, can access the internet through the PC using ICS, can ping the other computers, but can't see them in 'view workgroup computers' or 'my network places'.
I've checked the IP's, subnet, File & Print sharing etc.
So why can I surf the web through the PC but can't see the PC or any of it's shared folders?
