Plz help on a network sharing files and internet connection
Adenauer Jun-08-02 05:28 PM
Hello,
I have networked three decent computers together ( 1 using xp home edition, 1 using xp professional, and 1 using windows ME) and they all share an internet connection using cat5's with a Linksys router.
However, they cannot share files. whenever I click on My network places, I only see my shared folders and when i click View workgroup computers it sits there for a long time and either stops responding or says " You do not have permission and network path not found" even though the computers their "c" drives shared.
Any help is appreciated.
Thx in advance for any help.

Windows XP has these sort of problems when networked with 9X/Me if the NetBEUI is installed on any of them. The guest accounts have to be enabled on the XP computers. XP drives have to be given hare names without a $ in them. Before continuing please review our networking and Windows XP FAQs. Also, there are many posts in this forum on XP/9x/Me networking problems. Searching for them is best done with the Site Search in the left menu as it has a more extensive database. Please come back if that doesn’t help. Larry
