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

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.

yeah everything is all working ok its as i said just a case of mshome not accesible so i think its time for a router hopefully it will solve the problems
