I've got two PCs (PC1 and PC2) connected to a router then out to the interent which works fine. Both use Windows Me. I have sat ny PC1 and through Folder/properties allowed access to folders. When I sit on PC2 and click on PC1 under "My Network Places" I get an error message saying "Windows cannot find PC1..." or somethign very similar. Any ideas? I am trying to transer data files form PC2 to PC1 via my router.
there are shared folders on both PCs and if I switch firewalls off the problem remains. I guess what confuses me is that PC2 knows PC1 is there as it appears under "My network places" but if I click on PC1 it says it cannot find PC1?
I had some problems with WinME network and read somewhere (can't think where) that TCP/IP, WinME and networking could be a bit flakey.
I managed to get things stable by disabling file & printer sharing over TCP/IP but enabled via IPX/SPx & Netbeui. I left client for MS Networks enabled on all. I now have several machines on the network, all using WinME and sucessfully connected to the internet via a router / modem.
I added netbui to PC2. Cannot do to PC1 until daughter stops playing Sims. I'll try that tomorrow. I udes to have it working fine until I reloaded Win me on both machines after both had unassociated problems.
