I have a wireless home network with three machines. Two have XP home and one has XP Pro but this was and upgrade from Win 2000 pro. The two XP home computers can see each other. The XP Pro machine cannot be seen or see the other two, this machine does see the access point. The XP Pro is the internet Gateway and I cannot get to the internet from the other two.
I already tried the following solution and it didn’t help.
Try this first:
Run local security policy editor from control panel admin tools and set the local policy, Network Access: Let everyone permissions apply to anonymous users, to enabled and make sure guest account is enabled
