  2. I'm going nuts. I've been reading posts (many similar to my problems) but
    have not been able to figure out my problem. I obviously don't know what I'm
    doing.

    I'm trying to set up a home wireless network with file and printer sharing.

    I have:

    Netgear WGR614 v5 wireless router connected to Cable modem.
    Router is wired to desktop running XP Pro SP2
    I'm broadcasting to laptop running XP Home SP2 with Netgear wireless pc card

    Internet works fine on both. I've run Network Wizzards, disabled firewalls,
    uninstalled LAN, reinstalled, tried most everything I've read from many
    places. Nothing helps. I've disabled antivirus on both computers.

    From Desktop, I can ping router and laptop, but not self. I can only ping
    IP addresses. Pinging computer names fails. My Network Places shows shared
    folder on itself only. Clicking View Workgroup Computers shows nothing and
    causes the control panel window to "not respond".

    From laptop, I can ping self, router, but not desktop, again, IP addresses
    only. My Network Places shows shared folder on itself only. View Workgroup
    Computers shows desktop and laptop but desktop is not accessible.

    Sorry for the redundant post, but I'm about to chuck the whole thing out the
    window.

    If the internet works fine on both, then it sounds like the physical network is
    OK, and your problem is not wireless. You may get more help in
    microsoft.public.windowsxp.network_web.

    If you can access the internet, but not ping other computers by name, it sounds
    like a name resolution issue.

    Provide ipconfig information for each computer, and we can see what to look at
    next.
    Start - Run - "cmd" - Type "ipconfig /all >c:\ipconfig.txt" into the command
    window. Open Notepad, make sure that Format - Word Wrap is NOT checked!, open
    file c:\ipconfig.txt, copy and paste entire contents into your next post.

    That's a start, but is not terribly useful without the same for the laptop.

    Is the laptop used on another network at all, for example your place of
    work?

  11. I worked through another microsoft troubleshooting script and it sounds like
    a problem with my Routing Table (can't ping my own IP) and a problem with
    Host Name Resolution (can't ping any computer names). Problem is, they don't
    tell you how to resolve these matters, they just say that might be your
    problem.

    I reset the TCP/IP stack on the desktop. No help.

    Could you check both pcs have different host names and that they are both
    members of workgroup with the same name.
    It would appear that both pcs have correct tcp/ip settings hence they both
    browse the web ok but for them to talk to each other they have to be members
    of the same workgroup which is were its falling over.

  13. They each have unique names (PERSONAL, and OFFICE) and both belong to the
    workgroup MSHOME. As for the "host names", I'm not sure what you mean. How
    do I check this?

    Hoste name is what you call unique name, could you confirm that client for
    ms network and file and printer sharing are both ticked in network
    properties.

    OK, having assembled IPConfigs from both computers, let's enumerate your
    symptoms. Hopefully this will not greatly duplicate the "microsoft
    troubleshooting script" that you mentioned separately, though it will help me
    determine what questions to ask.

    Take the following code (everything inside the "#####"). (Please verify
    computer names and ip addresses).

    Open Notepad. Ensure that Format - Word Wrap is not checked. Highlight then
    Copy the code (Ctrl-C), precisely as it is keyed, and Paste (Ctrl-V) into
    Notepad. Verify, and correct, names and addresses if necessary.
    Save the Notepad file as "cdiag.cmd", as type "All Files", into the root folder
    "C:\".
    Run it by Start - Run - "c:\cdiag".
    Wait patiently.
    When Notepad opens up displaying c:\cdiag.txt, first check Format and ensure
    that Word Wrap is NOT checked! Then, copy the entire contents (Ctrl-A Ctrl-C)
    and paste (Ctrl-V) into your next post.

    Do this from all computers, please, with all computers powered up and online.

    You mentioned the ability to ping by ip address but not name, ie a name
    resolution problem. IPConfigs though both show Node Type = Hybrid, so no
    problem there.

    CDiag (requested in other post) may show the necessary clues.

    What Personal Firewalls and AntiViruses do you have, or have ever had, installed
    on either computer (active now or previously)?

    Also, check for a browser conflict between the two computers. I"m not talking
    about Internet Explorer here. The browser is the program that allows any
    computer to see any other computer on the LAN. On a 2 computer LAN, having both
    browsers active can cause problems.

    Make sure the browser service is running on one of the computers. Control Panel
    - Administrative Tools - Services. Verify that the Computer Browser, and the
    TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper, services both show with Status = Started. Stop, then
    Disable the browser on the other computer.

    After checking / disabling / enabling as above, power both computers off to
    reset the browser settings on each. Then power both back on again.

    The Microsoft Browstat program will show us what browsers (I'm not talking about
    Internet Explorer here) you have in your domain / workgroup, at any time.
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=188305

    You can download Browstat from either:
    <http://www.dynawell.com/reskit/microsoft/win2000/browstat.zip>
    <http://rescomp.stanford.edu/staff/manual/rcc/tools/browstat.zip>

    Browstat is very small (40K), and needs no install. Just unzip the downloaded
    file, copy browstat.exe to any folder in the Path, and run it from a command
    window, by "browstat status". Make sure all computers list the same master
    browser.
    For more information about the browser subsystem (very intricate), see:
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=188001
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=188305
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=231312
    <http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/winntas/deploy/prodspecs/ntbrowse.mspx>
    <http://www.microsoft.com/technet/archive/win95/w95brows.mspx>

    The browser requires anonymous access, so look at registry key
    [HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa], value restrictanonymous, on both
    computers.
    <http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/techinfo/reskit/en-us/default.asp?url=/windows2000/techinfo/reskit/en-us/regentry/46688.asp>

    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=246261
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=296403

    The above articles refer to Windows 2000. Remember WinXP is NT V5.1, and Win2K
    is NT V5.0.

    Have you used the Registry Editor before? If not, it's a scary tool, but it's
    pretty simple once you get used to it. Here are a couple articles that might
    help:
    <http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/home/using/productdoc/en/default.asp?url=/windowsxp/home/using/productdoc/en/tools_regeditors.asp>
    <http://www.annoyances.org/exec/show/registry>

    Just remember to backup the key (create a registry patch) for
    [HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa] before making any changes, if
    appropriate.

    From the Annoyances article:
    You can create a Registry patch by opening the Registry Editor, selecting a
    branch, and choosing Export from the File menu. Then, specify a filename, and
    press OK. You can then view the Registry patch file by opening it in Notepad
    (right-click on it and select Edit). Again, just double-click on a Registry
    patch file (or use Import in the Registry Editor's File menu) to apply it to the
    registry.

  18. Firewalls: Windows XP only on both (currently disabled).
    OFFICE (desktop) has Norton Anti-virus with Auto Protect (currently disabled)
    PERSONAL (laptop) McAfee VirusScan ASaP installed, not running.

    When I initially set up the network, everything was running (rookie mistake).

    Browser and TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper running on OFFICE and PERSONAL. I have
    now stopped and disabled it from PERSONAL.

    After changing these setting, I generated the following:

  19. I got the following from "browstat status":

    Status for domain MSHOME on transport
    \Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{8702C635-D751-4E61-81E2-9E40A839F0EE}
    Browsing is NOT active on domain.
    Master name cannot be determined from GetAdapterStatus.

    Also, did you get my response for all the IP diagonistics from both machines?
