Heyyy..hiii...i have a strange problem on my network....first of all i had a limited or no connectivity connection...but then i started to do crazy things and repairing connections...and somehow the internet connection now works on my other laptop ...here's what my networkd consists of,main PC with a USB modem ...and then a laptop connected thru a LAN card to my MAIN pc...i shared the connection of the main PC,and now i can use my DSL line on the laptop but the thing is....although i think i managed to solve the first problem...i cant seem to make an ACTUAL network...meaning...when i press on VIEW WORKGROUP COMPUTERS,it takes a while to tell me that MSHOME is not accessible ,you might not have permission to use this network resource...same on my laptop...so i cant share files.they doesnt appear on the main page of network places and i cant access work groups...any ideas ?!!

start > run > cmd > ipconfig /all > "c:\comp1.txt"

computer 2:
start > run > cmd > ipconfig /all > "c:\comp2.txt"

attatch both files with your next post

ipconfig /all > "c:\comp2.txt"

you just type that exactly into the command prompt..(the thing that comes up after start > run > cmd) the > is a "write command" it pipes the info directly to a text file

coiuld you describe the physical setup for me again..exactly how these machines are connected?
what i think you've got is...phone line from the wall to a usb modem...which is hooked to the main computer right?
then you've got an ethernet cable connecting one computer to the other through the nic cards?

is this a regular ethernet patch cabble? if so...to do nic to nic....you have to use a crossover cable...i think this is causing part of the issue....because the nic on the main computer is showing as unplugged..

on computer one...you've got...the phoneline going to the modem...connected to the pc via usb...then you have an ethernet (crossover) cable going from comp1's nic...to comp2's nic..correct?


on computer 1...right click my network places and do properties...now right click the icon for the LAN connection that corresponds to this NIC (Realtek RTL8139 Family PCI Fast Ethernet NIC) should be listed as " Local Area Connection"..choose properties...in the window that opens...highlight tcp/ip...and press the properties button....switch over to "manually assign ip" or however it's listed...and assign these values in the following fields

ip address : 192.168.0.194
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.1
DHCP Server . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.1
DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.1

then do apply and ok....now from computer 1 do

start > run > cmd > ping EMY
start > run > cmd > ping 192.168.0.195

any result?

from comp2 do
start > run > cmd > ping hussam
start > run > cmd > ping 192.168.0.194
any result?
