Workgroup computers

  1. Hi

    Please, please help me! I'm trying to set up a network to join a Vista pc,
    linked to a netgear wiress modem/router, and an XP machine with a Netgear USB
    wireless dongle. Both have the same workgroup name and both connect to the
    internet via the router. However I can't get the 2 PCs to see each other.
    I've checked firewall settings include each other as trusted IPs.

    Any ideas why they can't see each other?
    --
    Thanks for your help.

    Regards

    John

  2. 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.
