    Hi, I have 2 notebook (1 using XP and 1 using vista). I used "set up a
    wireless network for a home or small office" to network these 2 notebook.
    Both notebook already successful connect to wireless router under same
    workgroup but under "XP notebook" the vista notebook not appear. On the vista
    notebook workgroup map appear XP notebook. Went I try to explore XP notebook
    from Vista notebook this message appear "the network path was not found".

  2. Make sure you have NetBIOS over TCP/IP enabled. Also make sure no firewall
    blocks sharing.

  3. Hi
    Successful Sharing involves some general consideration in Network settings,
    http://www.ezlan.net/sharing.html
    As well as specific adjustment of each computer according to what it is
    allowed to be shared.
