Recently I installed Windows XP on the two machines at my house. These machines share an internet connection (DSL) and both are connected to a hub...which is connected to the DSL modem.
After installing XP neither machine can see the other, though the network connection works fine.
Here are the things I have tried (to no avail).
- Removing the XP firewall (I plan to use ZoneAlarm)
- Installing netbeui and setting up to handle file and print sharing.
- Setting the isMasterBrowser in the registry of one machine to TRUE
Both computers are in the same workgroup.
I can ping the other machine by IP address but not by netbios name.
I am trying to avoid installing a second nic and using one machine as a gateway.
Does anyone have any suggestions, they would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
