Hi
I am trying to set up a network between 2 PCs (both using XP). When I go to the network connections window it shows two connections - broadband and local area connection 2.

The broadband is fine - connecting to the net via a switch.

The local area connection 2 says it has "limited or no connectivity"

Questions:

* What does this mean?
* Would this explain why I am having no luck using the network wizard?

I have followed SpaceCowboy706's excellent guide to setting up a network to the point where he suggests I post this topic.

Can you help?

Thanks
Arb

Hi Arborphile
Are you running any programs like Zone Alarm? if yes please disable.
On both computers please go to Start>run>cmd ok
at the Prompt C:> ipconfig enter
What is listed as the ip address and the gateway on both machines.
Cheers
