About 6 months ago I asked for your help to network my 2 PCs so I could file share and Internet connection share – using Ethernet cards and cable.
Unfortunately after a series of posts we decided to stop trying and I would wait for an upgrade to 8meg Broadband from my ISP and you would ‘talk’ me through again this time using wireless.
I now have the upgrade and have been able to connect the 2 PCs to the WWW using USB wireless adapters and a hub. This is a wireless broadband router called a home hub - I now have the 2 PCs and an Xbox 360 enabled to access the WWW wirelessly
Can you help me to set up a home network - I have read the 'how to' guide here http://www.howtonetworking.com/Networking/enablesharing0.htm but the 2 PCs still cant ‘see’ each other.
Both PCs are running Win XP SP2.
Both PCs are running Zone alarm firewall and I think I have enabled access to each other.
The hub firewall is showing that it allows application sharing.
I have ‘pinged’ both and this appears to be ok.
