I had this problem in college as well since I couldn't see anyone else on the network yet they could see me. I didn't think much of it at the time.
My pc is custom made by myself and it is running Windows XP Professional
My laptop is a dv2000t running the stock windows XP home edition.
I thought it would be cool to be on a network so I did it. BUt my laptop is pissing me off. I could install xp pro. on it and it should work, but i rather just get it to work how it is. Also, if I reinstall my own version of xp professional, I will need to download all the drivers for my builtin webcam, bluetooth, etc.
Thanks in advanced.
By the way, the method i used to set up my network is with the wizard provided by xp
