    I have 2 XP computers and 1 older Dell desktop. I am able to confirm
    connectivity with the XP with the run/cmd/ipconfig. I don't know how I can
    access that information in Vista. I seem to get confusing status notices.

    Thanks for any and all help, I'm still confused with Vista but slowly
    getting there.

    Thanks again

  3. Hi
    If the Vista computer have a valid Internet connection connectivity is
    probably OK.
    Successful Sharing involves some general consideration in Network settings,

    As well as specific adjustment of each computer according to what it is
    allowed to be shared.
