Im having a bit of trouble connecting to my desktop(running XP home SP3). Using my new laptop with Windows 7. I have done everything under the sun to set it up. Ive googled and tried everything. I try to connect to the desktop and it gives me the unable to connect, and 3 reasons why. Is there anything I am missing between these two OSs? I am new to win7.
I have opened ports(3389, etc.) I have allowed the firewall to open that port. I am on a wireless network. My router is set up as well(netgear). I have set up the computer properties, remote tab, allow users...
Am I missing something? I type in the IP of the desktop(which is obv the same as my laptop). I type in the name of the computer "i.e. 'desktop'" Im so frustrated. If anyone has any ideas, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks
