if you have a firewall running you need to enable file and printer sharing

if you are struggling try disableing the firewall to see if it works - then you know what is causing the problem.

disabled firewall on both comps and still no luck

Just because they say they are connected, doesn't mean they are...

Can each PC physically 'ping' each other with data?

go to start run and type cmd and hit enter to open up the command box

type ping 192.168.0.1 and hit return

for me it is 192.168.0.1 because this is the network address of my router - will try and find more info for you

type igconfig /all after the command prompt on each machine - this will show you the network settings

then you can try to ping each machines ip address from the other

when i ping ip add it says request timed out packets sent 4 received o
