Hello, I have two brand new computers, one of which needs to be returned, and I've run into real problems trying to transfer my files offline from one computer to the other using a new crossover cable that I just bought with no hub and the Windows XP File Transfer Wizard. Both computers have Windows XP Home Edition. I've disabled both the McAfee and the Windows Firewalls but each time that I run the Network Setup disk it reactivates the Windows Firewall and I can actually watch it change from Off to On. Perhaps this is the problem (?) I created a Network Setup floppy disc (netsetup) on my newest computer which I then ran through my other computer and I also created a File Transfer Wizard floppy as instructed. (a:\FASTWiz) . When I insert this floppy into my older computer and click on RUN, as soon as I choose the NETWORK option when it appears and then click NEXT, I receive a popup saying "The Wizard cannot locate your new computer. Make sure the new computer is turned on and that your network is working properly." I've also right clicked on Network Connections in the task bar and in checking the area connections icon it shows "Little or no connection activity". When I tried using the repair tool, Windows searched for and was unable to find an IP renewal address. Along these same lines I read an article on IP address renewal and attempted it by clicking on Start, Run, and then typing in com, ipconfig, followed by ipconfig/release and then ipconfig/renewal. This didn't help as when one computer seemed to be okay when I tried doing the same thing to the other computer it would show an X though one of the computers in the task bar on the other computer. I really need to transfer these files and this is exasperating. Any help sure would be appreciated. Many thanks.
