Hi, I am having nightmares getting my 2 pc's to connect using a crossover cable. One is on XP Home (No service packs) and the other is XP home SP2. Both have the network cards installed and are working ok. I have used network wizard to create the network. Each PC has its own shared folder but cannot see the other pc. i have set up the ip address as per many tutorials (ie IP address 192.168.0.x and subnet 255.255.255.0) but i am still having problems. 1 PC can ping the IP address of the other, but not the name, the other pc cant ping the other pc at all. All firewalls are disabled as well Any ideas how to get this working Thanks in advance!
