I have two PC's (one using Windows XP the other Windows 2000) that are connected to the Internet through a Linksys router. In the past I have been able to share folders on each computer so that I could transfer documents, MP3's, etc. back and forth. Earlier this week when I was trying to reconfigure the printer sharing for both computers I made the mistake of clicking on the "set up a home or small office network" under My Network Places on my Windows XP OS and followed the instructions. Now I no longer have the ability to share folders or a printer between the two PC's. When I click on "View Workgroup Computers" it only shows my PC. It used to show both PC's. Any idea how I can correct the problem and get both PC's networked again?

Yes, sure both computers have the same workgroup name, when running the wizard it resets the names back to default. Try that and let me know if it worked please.
