I just bought a Di 524 Version C, and I've set it up. I have a desktop computer running Windows XP Pro sp2, directly connected to the router, and I have a laptop running Windows XP home, connected with a wifi card. Both of these computers have working internet, and it's at constant full speed.
My problem is that I can't get both computers to connect to each other to share files. I've been trying to set up a network, and then get both computers on to the network, but so far:
-the router setting have been pretty much unset, the wireless settings for the AP Portion have the SSID as "default" and security is turned off. I have not touched the firewall or filter settings at all.
-I've jumbled around with both computers attempting to make this network, and so far I think I've made a network on the desktop computer, (named Mshome) When I double click on it, it shows it as being empty. To get to it, It's in Microsoft Windows Network, which is in Entire Network, which is in My Network Places.
-On the laptop, I don't remember setting up a network, but I might have. When I got to My Network Places, I have a SharedDocs folder, but the folder belongs to the laptop. There is no trace of the desktop to be found anywhere from the laptop.
-Now, when I ping the ip of the desktop (192.168.0.100) from the laptop, I get 4 "Destination host unreachable" messages, and then it says that all for packets were lost.
-When I ping the laptop from the laptop, I get 4 "PING: transmit failed, error code 65." messages, and all 4 packets were lost.
I don't think this is an issue with my zone alarm firewalls either, because I can't connect with them off either.
If more information is needed, please let me know.
