    Hi all,

    Please can you help with this one ? I've posted this issue before but still
    not managed to fix !

    Desktop connected to wireless router, connects to internet etc fine.

    Laptop connected wireless to router, connects to internet etc fine.

    Laptop can not see desktop at all or vice versa, cannot even ping eachother,
    although they can both ping router and router setup page shows them both as
    being connected.

    Please can you help me on this one ? d-link DSL-G624T Router. Both
    machines running XP home SP 2. I only want to be able to share files and a
    printer !

    Thanks in advance.

  2. I would check the firewall first. If disabling the firewall, can you ping each other?

  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.
