We have two computers networked together in a workgroup called grogans.  Both computers can attach to the internet.  Computer A and B are both seeing each other when I goto network places.  Computer A can get things from computer B, but computer B cannot get things from computer A.  I checked the folder and it is set to shared.  Computer A is winxp home and computer B is winxp Prof.  Computer A can load 192.168.1.1 quickly, but Computer B takes a long time to load 192.168.1.1.
