Just set up a home network with the set up wizard in xp but I cant tick the box that lets me share folders. what have I done wrong?

Do you have administrator rights?

yes I do, I managed to get the tick in the box but still cant find any files on the other PC's Think I will give it up as a bad idea.

How do I remove a home network?

Did you run the network setup wizard on all the other PCs and enable file sharing on each of them?

  Madrat 01:59 01 Apr 2007

yes I did

I am not a network wizard so I suggest you close this thread as resolved and head over to the Networking forums for help, unless, of course, someone else comes up with a quick solution to your problem in the meantime.

No problem, sorry I couldn't help more.

Not sure if you're still checking this thread, but having had the same problem I had to configure Zone Alarm to "trust" my home network IP addresses.

Good point, forgoy to ask about a firewall.
