  1. hi ,
    im having trouble getting my 3 windows xp's to talk to each other in a network.
    internet works fine on all 3. 2 are wired directly into a 4 port wireless belkin router. the other is wirless through a belkin card. they are all desktops. I've run network setup on all 3 but not at the same time and i want to know is there something specific that i have to do at network setup to share files?
    any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    have you run the network setup wizard?
    because files are not shared by default

    Make sure that file and printer sharing is enabled

    loads of people have this problem, sometimes its just a case of looking at a few of the settings on each machine. sometimes the windows network setup wiz' can cause more trouble than its worth.
