    I have set up my wireless where Win 2k has the wireless router - Actiontec
    704wg attached. I have wireless card on the XP Pro pc.
    The machine names are different. Teh workgroup is the same.
    IP is like: 192.168.0.1 for router
    Win 2k: 192.168.0.2 & XP is 192.168.0.3
    I can hit the internet with both just fine.
    I have a folder where sharing is allowed for Everyone and Full rights. I
    have similar for printer I want to share.
    I can ping each computer and router using the IP address but not the name
    address.
    I want to be able to see in Network Neighborhood and share files, transfer
    files and share printers.
    I eventually want to add an additional 5 computers to the mix but after I
    get this figured out.
    One or two of these extra PC will be used for file location/storage.
    Help please
