I bought a new pc (Compac). I have a NETGEAR fs105 five port ethernet router. Also, have a dell laptop. Both are runnning Win XP. In the beginning I hooked everything up, ran the Netwotk Wizard on both and got a file sharing Network - Printer sharing and all. Then - I transferred all my files and made my changes, no problems really. After I was satisfied and all sharing was said and done, I unhooked everything.
Since I unhooked it all I have added High speed internet. Now when I try to set my network back up I am at a loss. I hooked it all back up the same way I did in the beginning, here's the difference. I cannot send information back and forth between the two computer now! They both recognize they are on the LAN, however they don't recognize each other when I go to network places. When I did this before there were no problems. I would go to Network places and see both computers and I could do what ever I wanted. Did I change something and I don't know it? Is the internet causing a problem? I have re-run the Network Wizard on both machines and still no communication between the two.
