Can you Ping the destnation pc? if not then make sure you do that and then try to get into the pc. look for fwalls. look for Newly installed Files from the Internet.

Some things to check;
Windows Firewall
Make sure each computer has the same users with the same passwords
Turn on file and print sharing (easiest way is to run the home netowrk wiz)

All this is assuming you can ping
If you can not ping check;
your cables
your IP settings

Create the same users for both computers is very important. About the network, how are you using DSL connection?

There are several ways to use DSL connections. FOr example, if you are using a DSL Modem plugged directly in the switch, then this modem must be configured as a router (if it has this capability), and as a DHCP Server to facilitate configs. Then the workstations can have IP configs automacally.

If your modem does not have router capabilities you can:

a) use a router/switch betwen the modem and the computers
b) attach the DSL to one computer (with two network cards) and attach the other net card to the switch. Then Share the internet tru Windows XP (properties of Network Connection).

You can check the IP config opening a command prompt and typing ipconfig /all

Send all these informations (including how your equipments are connected) if it is your problem.

usually broadband connections with home networks are set up like this:
modem (may include a router) -> router (can be wireless) -> computers & printers (wired or wireless)

a switch just connects them to an existing netwk for expansion

you need a dhcp server to provide ip addr's to all pc's on a netwk (usually built into the router), in order for all of them to get access to the internet & netwk resources

once this is correct then you can set up a file sharing between computers on the network

Check these two services on both machines.

Server Service        - Required to providing SMB Services
Workstation Service - Responsible for authentication and connection setup.

Make your login and passwords the SAME on all systems, and give them all administrator privileges, and reboot all systems, and make shares with ADMIN privileges with "everyone" able to access the shares, and you have it.

I woulden't give everyone access to the share.  If you have the same user name and pword on each system then your share should work fine.  Adding everyone to the share is a security risk.

Do you have some kind of firewall in between.

If you you need to open TCP/445.
