XP Home & XP Pro Wireless Networking
Posted on 2007-07-28
Here's my hardware:
PC1 - XP Home
PC2 - XP Pro
Linksys Wireless Router - WRT54GS
Linksys Cable Modem - BEFCMU10
Cable modem -> router -> PC1, PC2 connects via wireless USB
What I'm trying to do is just setup a network drive so I can move all the info on PC2 to PC1. When I try to use "net use" to set up a network drive I get the error "System error 53 has occured. The network path was not found"
I have internet connectivity on both PCs and I can ping PC2 from PC1, but I can't ping PC1 from PC2; nor can I use the "tracert" command when I ping PC2 from PC1.
I have not run the Windows network setup wizard on either PC because it seems unnecessary and I think it may screw up the wireless connection that I already have working.
Is it necessary to run the Windows network setup wizard to do what I'm trying to do or is there a setting somewhere that I have missed? Am I totally barking up the wrong tree?
Thanks for any and all help!
