Hi,

I tried to set up a network at my firends house the otherday, so they coud share their printer, and files. I first tried setting up the network by plugging both computers into the router they have, then I ran the network setup wizard, and when it asked me to choose what kind of network I wanted, I clicked other, then that the computers connect to the internet through a hub. That did'nt work, so I put another network card in one of the comptuers, and used a crossover between the two. I was able to make it so that the computer connecting through the crossover connected to the internet, and could seee the other computer, but could not access it, and the other computer could not see the one using the crossover. I tried uninstalling the drivers for all the network cards, and reinstalling them, and resetting up the network, and I even set up a network other than the default "MSHOME." Anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance for the help!
