    I have four windows xp computers. 1 with winxp pro and 3 with home. The
    windows xp pro is the main computer and the others go through the wireless
    network this way. The problem is I cannot see the other computers when i try
    to access them via the view network connections. what am I doing wrong?

    You need to activate "File/Printer Sharing" and share a drive.

    After, your need to configure the firewall service to let File/Printer
    sharing thru.

  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.
    Vista File and Printer Sharing-
