Hi, I've read several posts like this one today but none solves my issue. I have two computers each running XP connected to a linksys EFAHO5W 10/100 hub which is then connected to an DSL modem. Each computer can access the internet via the hub first then the modem. Last year when I set up the network w/ three computers they all connected. After hooking them up again after a seven month disconnect they will not register a connection to each other when 'view workgroup computers applet button is clicked. Computer 1 has been upgraded during the disconnect period with more and faster memory as well as an additional hard drive. Computer 2 was able to see a third computer (computer 3 removed from the network a few days ago). but could not see computer 1. computer 3 could see computer 2 as well but it also registered no connection to computer 1. Things I've tried: (1.) switch around the connections on the linksys hub (2.) run the XP connect wizard >other>this computer connects to the internet through a networkhub other computers connect through the hub> then I click first turn on printer file sharing (does not work) (3.) so run the wizard again and turn off printer and file sharing also does not work (4.)restart both computers and turn off power to the hub and back on (5.)run the wizard and choose >this computer connects to the internet through a residential gateway- do this with both computers. (6.) ran a diagnostic found at MS supprt knowlege base to try pinging the hub and other computer but got hopelessly lost. puke: (7) turn off windows sp2 firewall on both computers but left my AVG 7.1trial version firewall running on computer 1. (please note that this issue was encountered before the installtion of AVG so AVG is probably not the problem.) (8) followed a tutorial found here www.homenethelp.com that stormbringer had placed in a simmilliar post to manually configure both computers with no luck So to sum up both of my computers will share my internet connection but they will not network Why not?
