Networking through a wanadoo livebox

  Ionbarber 19:01 08 Jan 2007

I would much apricaite a dummie guide on how to set up a small network to share documents from each pc.

I have set each pc to workgroups and named them, but I just can't see each of them on either pc.

Many Thanks in advance.

Make sure they are all part of the same workgroup (check spelling is the same), and ensure that each machine has at least one folder set to "shared".

I will check the spelling over the next couple of days, however when and where should i see the other pc'c.

Go to "My Documents", click on "My Network Places" and then "View Workgroup Computers"

I have carried out that but still i can't see either pc at each end. I am not sure what I am doing wrong, I am sure I have them both set as workgroups. Tony M mentioned about checking the spelling, I have called the laptop "laptop" and home pc "Homepc"

I have set the pc to workgroups, however when I click view work groups a message returns saying I need to contact the admistrator, this is my home wanadoo live box so I am not sure where to go from here
