Does anyone know how to use Windows XP Performance Monitor to view the bandwidth usage of other networked computers on a home network?

My home network consists of:

- a 2wire 1700HG gateway
- a desktop computer running Windows XP Professional
- a laptop computer running Windows XP Professional
- a deksktop running Windows XP Home

All three computers are connected on our home network, with file and printer sharing enabled (successully). What I would like to do now is use Windows performance monitor to view the bandwidth (network interface) of the other two computers. After running PERFMON, I right-click and select "add counters...". However, when I select "select counters from computer:" I can't see the names of the other two computers on my home network. In addition, if I type in the computer names or their IP addresses, I get the message "cannot connect to computer".

What am I doing wrong here? Thanks in advance ...

Mark. V

Yes, I did. I also used the two backslashes with the other computer's LAN IP address, but I still get the message "unable to connect to computer".
