Ok so I've had a look around but can't seem to find anything.
We have 4 compters connected through a hub to the internet (broadband), and all can access the internet fine. The problem is between 2 of the computers (both running windows xp).
We are trying to play a LAN game, between the two computers. Now my friends one seems to be fine, in his 'workgroup compters' he can see my computer. When trying to ping my ip, he gets a 'timed out' error, but he can ping his own fine. Now with mine, I can access his files from an explorer window via the address bar typing \\'His Computer Name", and I can access his shared files. When copying one of his file, it copies fast - ie. direct connection. However, when he does the same to me he cannot access my computer, and even though he can see my computer in his workgroups, he cannot access it there either. I can ping his ip and get a reply, but when i ping mine, i get the 'timed out' error. also when I go to 'my workgroup computers' I dont get anything, not even my own computer. When I try to view my workgroup computers I get told that it is not accessible and I do not have permission. I have run my network setup wizard, the exact same as his.
Does anyone, have any ideas on how to get the computers seeing each other in the workgroup computers section?
If any other info is needed, just ask and I'll post what I can.
Thanks a lot.
