I'm trying to set up a home workgroup on two computers with XP home installed and I am unable to ping either computer (using IP addresses listed by an ipconfig /all statement). They are connected using a Linksys firewall router (with the firewall disabled). (Both computers can ping the router).
Both computers have...
-"HOME" as the workgroup name
-NETBIOS over TCP/IP enabled
-Client for Microsoft Neworks installed
-File & printer sharing enabled
-Windows firewall disabled (no other firewalls running as far as I can tell)
They both can access the internet no problem but I just can't seem to find each other.
From the ipconfig /all statement, I noticed that 1 computer has "IP routing enabled" and the other one doesn't. (Not sure if that is helpful info).
