Okay so this started recently but i wasnt bothered with it. I left it alone. A while back I used to transfer a lot of things from my computer to my laptop and my laptop to my computer, my desktop is XP and my laptop is vista. And it worked perfectly, i detected other XP laptops and XP desktops on my network map. But recently, i dont know what happened but it stopped detecting the computers. I checked everything, firewall is off, the registry value is set to 0 for restrictanonymous (i cant access my own laptop sharing), deleted norton off the laptop, and did everything other forums asked me to do. I even installed LLDP for my XP and that didnt help at all. I mean this wasnt the case always, i used to be able to do it but now idk what happened. Even under the Network Map for vista, i See my laptop connected ti something called switch, to gateway then Internet, and under it Is my Desktop connected to switch, but I cant click on it. All my connections are set to private and such too, I dont know what to do, i spent so much time on this, atleast 6 hours today and still figuring it out, and now i need your help!!!
ps. also when i view my network on the vista, i see my laptop and my desktop's name with the icon of a router and a music note, i click on it but it brings up windows media player. Also i think its my laptop to be honest, becuz my desktop can view other computers fine.
