Networking problems

Postby twetypie1 » Mon Apr 23, 2007 11:18 pm

I can't get my 2 computers to see one another in the network. I have a laptop and a desktop both running winxp. Can someone tell me what to do to get them to see one another on the network? Thanks

Make sure the workgroups on both machines are set the same.

In the Control Panel, run the "Network Setup Wizard" on both computers, making sure that when you enter in a workgroup name, you name them both the same (eg, "Home" or "Network"). When you run the network setup wizard on the first computer, it will give you the option to make a setup disk (on cd, or floppy) to be run on another computer, thus applying the exact same preferences on each computer you run it on. This setup wizard will also allow you to enable printer/file sharing.

Check the IP connectivity of two pcs.
Sample example of checking the IP connectivity (pinging) of two pcs having IP addresses of PC1= 10.0.0.8 , PC2 = 10.0.0.9
STEP 1
Check the IP addresses of two pcs using ipconfig command
====================================================
C:\Documents and Settings\TEMP>ipconfig
Windows IP Configuration
Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 10.0.0.8
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.0.0.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 10.0.0.2
C:\Documents and Settings\TEMP>

STEP 2
check the connectivity between the two PCs using ping command
============================================================
C:\Documents and Settings\TEMP>ping 10.0.0.9
Pinging 10.0.0.9 with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from 10.0.0.9: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128
Reply from 10.0.0.9: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128
Reply from 10.0.0.9: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128
Reply from 10.0.0.9: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128

Ping statistics for 10.0.0.9:
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 0ms, Maximum = 0ms, Average = 0ms

STEP 3
check PC1 in PC2
goto to WIndows START------>RUN------> "\\10.0.0.9"

i think they need to be linked to each other for them to become visible to one another. Or try setting up a new connection

Also check the firewalls of the computer and check the built-in firewall of the router or gateway.

Try setting up a new connection.

Are they in one web account or seperately?

Hi!
Adopt this procedure, may be this helps you.
go to run command window and type \\machine name (or) \\IP Address .
it will open the other computer on the network.
