I have tried for 4 weeks to get a P2P Newtork up and running on my Desktop and Laptop. D/top runs XP Pro and L/top WinME.
1st time out I got nothing but could share Internet. Then all hell broke loose and I had to reformat and start all over on D/top. 2nd time I got to see the L/top and could go into it and work away - but no Internet sharing. I believe that I couldnt go from the L/top to D/top due to NTFS file system which WinME doesnt recognise.
Then last few days, I've noticed that the IP address on D/top has changed everytime I boot up. The address is hugely different each time. Tonight the following happened. There was NO IP address, the taskbar had changed from the XP blue to an awful grey/cream colour, fonts changed even on Start button.
Is there something that I am doing or do I just start all over again. I really am getting weary of this but need to have the two systems networked for file sharing and for Internet sharing.
