I Cant Network My 2 Pc's
Posted 30 August 2005 - 08:47 PM
i turned on one computer, enabled the connection, setup all the ip settings and stuff. then i made sure both computers had the cable plugged in securely. and then i turned on the other computer(my desktop...the first is a laptop) and it said that there was a connection and that it received 100or something packets when i looked at the status of the connection. BTW im using winXP home edition. but when i told the computer to view "my network places" and then pressed the "view workgroup computers" and it took a while, but then it showed the name of the workgroup if both of the computers. then i clicked on that icon. it took a while again, and it showed an icon for the shared files folder on my laptop so i clicked on that and it said i didnt have permission to view the files. then i tried the same thing with my laptop and the same problem occured.
can someone tell me what im doing wrong.

If that doesnt work you might have to statically configure your IP settings on your computer. Make sure the net ids of the pc and xbox match, for example if the xbox is 192.168.100.x, the pc has to be 192.168.100.x, not 192.168.0.x

But he was right, if you can for the momment rename bot h ips to 1 off liek you would your xbox. It's the same concept. NIC to NIC connection.. It should work then unless yoaure still getting access denied errors from your shares then disable it on both computers remove both from your work group the re-enable your work group, let them find each other then re share drives.
Chances are you dont have a domain dont worry about it
