Networking to XP Laptops
Posted on 2006-04-18
I am attempting to newtwork two laptops both running xp home.
Both computers are connected wirelessly to a linksys router to get to the internet.
Steps taken so far:
1. tried to setting up a wireless network using the network wizard, but when I got to the point to when the wizard told me to plug my jumpdrive into the access point, if found my linksys wireless router has no usb port. Since I found no usb port I abandoned this setup. I would like to use this feature. How would I accomplish this.
2. Since the computers were already connected to the router, I used the XP network wizard to create a network between the two laptops. I can see both machines when I view my network computers BUT:
laptap A has access to laptop B but laptop B cannont access laptop A.
-Both have Norton Internet security installed and I haved setup networking to allow the range of IP addresses to connect to each machince.
-windows firewall is off on both machines
-I have created guest accounts on each machine
Thanks for your help.
