This is the error message i get when trying to see the computers on my network. I have used an Origo ADSL router (ASR 8400) to connect the pcs together and now my internet connection is shared. I cannot see the pcs when i go to look at 'view workgroup computers' under the 'my network places' shortcut. Should i be able to see the pcs as i thought this was how you transferred files....also if this isn't the way to transfer files could somebody tell me how to. On the other pc (one without the internet connection) when i go to 'view workgroup computers' it shows itself but not my pc.
Make sure windows XP hasnt automatically activated its errm wonderful built in firewall. In control panel, click network connections and look for a lock icon in the corner of your connection. If there is one, right click the connection, choose properties, then the advanced tab, then uncheck the box for the firewall
but the pc's can see each other, but one wants a password (which I have no idea what it is, as I do not have the machine password protected, and the other does not. That is one machine can see the other but not vice versa.
