i have 2 pc's running windows XP - the client pc can access the internet etc no problems but in the network places neither of the pc's can see each other they are names correctly etc - i never had this problem until last week when we went ADSL any ideas ?
to exchange files use internet etc - at present i can use internet on both pc's also i can get into files by doing a search for the other pc what the main problem is in network places the workgroup is not accesible i am using a asdl modem and a cross link cable which was fine until i got adsl its just the workgroup that has the problems they are named correctly etc
START/ALL PROGRAMS/ACESSORIES/COMMUNICATIONS/NETWORK CONNECTIONS.are u using ethernet ports? if so check the port is enabled. if your using USB then START/right click MY COMPUTER and select device manager scroll through untill you can find your ADSL modem,double click on your modem and check it is working properly.
