Help me Please??????I have a small home network. (well did have)both systems are running XP home. I had the network working fine before, but needed to format the hard drive on my laptop.Now all I get is the small icon (two little tv screens) on both computors but nothing works.I have run the network wizzard on both computers but nothing has changed.Where am I going wrong sombody help me please!!!!!
and I get the following reply:- request timed out???.This does not make any sence to me. I have also turned off both the firewalls but the answer stays the same.
How was your network connected, wireless or ethernet?
I use A cross over cable between my home pc and Laptop,
I may be going at this the wrong way if so I apologise in advance.Have you checked that your laptop has network interface card drivers installed.I am assuming the problem is with the laptop as you have just reformatted the hard drive.
Are all firewalls disabled?Have you put them both on the same workgroup?If you don't know what I'm talking about, let me know and I'll step you through checking these.
Yes to both of your questions. I used the msn home (default) workgroup. & I reinstalled all the drivers back on to my Laptop.So I am still lost!!
Have you set up file sharing on both computers?
Yes I have done that, still no joy.
go to your network connections and check the status of the connection making sure it is enabled - try to repair it see if this helps
I am running out of ideas will do a bit of reading to see if I can find anything else.
