Hope you can help.

In our household we have 3 computers, 2 desktop (Computers A and B) and 1 laptop (Computer C), all of which are running windows XP. we are trying to connect all 3 to a network plus have internet acces through a cable (ADSL broadband) modem. at first computer A had access to the net and computer B could access the net through this and could see computer A's files, etc. now we have added computer c and none of the computers can see each other and only computer A has internet access again.

All computers and internet connection are plugged into a 5 port network hub.

I have run network setup wizard on all 3 compters, but no joy.

None of them can ping any of the others and im completely baffled!! At one point computer A could see computer B for accessing files however could not see each other when trying to play network games.!??!

Please help!!

Many thanks

have u tryed running the network wizard on ll 3 in the same time frame (A with the internet connection first, then B and C at the same time?)

usually for network games they have to be made off the computer with the primary connection to the hub or router
