  1. Please Help!!!

    I am trying to network 3 computers together!! Setup as follows:

    Machine #1: Windows XP Home (connects to the internet using USB Modem)

    Machine #2: Windows XP Pro Laptop

    Machine #3: Windows 2000

    Can get internet on all 3 machines via ICS but can only network the XP Home machine & Windows 2000 machine. The XP Pro machine will not network at all!!!!!

    Any help would be greatly received. :)

    Are they on the same workgroup? Did you try browsing by their individual IP addresses instad of their computer names?

    cannot disable simple file sharing on home machine
    so try changing or adding same user to both machines
    log in with that
    also try adding network to firewall profile
