I've networked (10/100 ethernet) my XP box many times before without problems, but this ones frustrating. My Housemat has poor sight, so I've let her use the monitor, while I'm rigged up to use the TV. This also means that my housemate has the internet connection, even though my computer is 15 times faster than hers (mines a 2400+, my housemate a pentium 2), so it may seem strange, but hers is erving the broadband internet to mine. Anyway... I ran through the wizard on her PC (\\OSTARA) to set up the network with the workgroup MSHOME to share the internet connection, and then ran through the wizard on mine (\\BRIGHID) to set up under the same workgroup and to take the internet connection from her computer. All seemed fine for a moment, as the icons in the system tray showed a connection, and the internet connection flowed freely to my machine. That is, until I looked at the shares... My computer (\\Brighid) immediately sees both itself and \\OSTARA in the "view other computers on this network" window, but cannot access anything by double clicking \\Ostara, offering the error message My computer also sees all it's own shares in "My Network places", but none of \\Ostara's When I try to view computers on the network from \\Ostara, The cursor turns into an eggtimer while it works for a minute or two, before failing to detect either itself or \\Brighid on the network, displaying the error \\Ostara fails to see it's own shares, or \\Brighid's in "My Network Places" The internet connection continues to be shared perfectly. Both LAN connections are running "client for microsoft networks", "file and printer sharing", "QOS packet scheduler", and "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)". I can't seem to figure it out.
