Situation: Wireless router connected by cable to desktop and by wireless to notebook. Desktop also connects periodically to VPN at work. No problem with both machines getting an Internet connection.
Problem: I've tried networking the desktop and the notebook using the MSHOME network set-up in Windows XP Pro SP2 but neither computer will see the other. One PC has Zone Alarm Internet Security and the firewall trusts 192.168.2.1 to 192.168.2.100. The other PC has Norton Internet Security 2007 and it trusts 192.168.2.1 to 192.168.2.21
Why will the computers not see each other? What am I doing wrong?
