Hello, can someone please tell me what what i'm doing wrong? I have set up a home network (using the windows xp wizard) with my desk top as the host(connecting directly to the internet) & laptop as the client. The laptop says it is connected to the internet & has even done an automatic update to the anti virus, but i can get nothing on internet explorer. I have been through all the windows help & trouble shooters.But it has made no difference.Internet explorer even has the little world symbol bottom right.Please could i have some advice.
I'm not sure what you mean by seeing the computers. There is an icon showing a connection, but nothing in network places.In the windows troubleshooter it tells you how to ping each computer to check that data can be sent and this worked. I can also transfer data using laplink gold but not without it. However as this is the first time i've tried to network i dont even know what i should be able to do on the windows network
Sorry to be such a dummy about this and thank you very much for your continued help
