Unable to view either computer on network
Kris Nov-19-00 06:28 AM
Using the guide from this web site, I set up my two home computers identical to each other.
After I had finished and rebooted them both I was not able to view either of the computers on either network.
I know next to nothing about networking so any help would be appreciated.

1. Can't See Network - Log In?

Sometimes it's the simple stuff...If you assigned a password when setting up the networked computer's shared resources i.e., drives, printers, don't forget to log in with the password(s)at start up. I networked my computers and saw them in the the "network neigborhood." I shut down, restarted and the network was GONE. After working for hours reconfiguring the network, I found that I simply forgot to log in. Hope this helps.
