Viewing shared anything on a network

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?U2VhbiAzREQ=?=, Feb 25, 2005.

  1. I have two new notebooks, both running XP, one has an intel 2100 network
    adaptor card, the other a 2200, both are (finally) connecting to a common
    ad-hoc network with the same name.

    Now here's the problem, I have no idea of what I'm supposed to do now, I
    have allowed sharing, etc, how/when am I supposed to 'see' a directory of the
    other drives.

    I have created a common workgroup, but can only see what is on the 'host'
    machine when I 'explore'. as for sharing a printer and the internet, thats is
    beyond me.

    I hope it is something simple... ...please!

    regards

    Sean 3DD

    An aside, of the two network cards, are they significantly different, as
    both machines where supposed to be identical, which one is 'better'?
