Networking XP & ME

  steve63 21:16 30 Dec 2003

Am setting up network between XP & ME. One slight problem. On clicking Network Set Up Wizard on XP, no wizard appears (wizard ok on ME). Any ideas anybody.

By the way, I do not have any recovery discs to re-install XP if the wizard has been accidentally removed.

Can ping from ME to XP but not XP to ME?

if you make a network disk with ME, as it would tell you during the wizard, run that floppy on the xp machine. Does the wizard come up then?

Try turning off any firewalls and then try pinging again.

I generally set the ip address manually - on the main pc ie the one connecting to the net I set to 192 168 0 1 subnet mask 255 255 255 0 and then on the other pc 192 168 0 2 same subnet. Then put 192 168 0 1 in the gateway and dns on the second machine.

Rennaisance - Thanks for tip but ME disc will not run on XP system.

Leading MNms - Thanks, turned of firewall on XP and got a ping response, but still have problem of getting wizard to work.
