Hi, I have 2 computers networked through a D-Link router, I can access the intanet on both but cannot get them to see each other even though I followed the set up instructions to the letter. Both are running XP home.

What setup instructions are you referring to?

Have you checked the network management in the add remove windows components which is in the add remove software through the control panel

The set up instructions that came with the router

So you have setup the Router, but never setup the network?

The easiest way is to use the Network Wizard in XP to setup the network.

Keep in mind, both machines must be on the same Workgroup (name it what you like), but each machine must have a unique name. XP should do the rest for you.

Come back if you have specific questions please.

Have tried the network wizard and no luck.
This is my first attempt at a network so I have no idea what to do now.

Please explain what happened when you attempted to setup the network with the Wizard.

It asked me for a name for each computer and a workgroup then I think it was just a case of clicking next till i reached finish and then a reboot.
Can it be configured manually? if so is their a site with simple instructions to follow.

Make sure that all firewalls are disabled for now. You could also try a ping command. Open a command prompt and type "ping computername" where the computer name is the name you set. Does it respond or does it time out ?

The ping responded 4 packets sent 4 packets received 0% loss.
