    network:

    comp specs 1: 1.63 Ghz Athlon XP 1800+, 512 MB RAM DDR, 64MB Winfast Geforce 3 ti 200, Windows XP Pro Build 2600 w/ SP1
    comp specs 2: 500 Mhz, 128 MB SDRAM, 16MB Integrated Motherboard Video Card, Windows XP Pro Build 2600 w/ SP1

    router: Linksys BEFSR41 firmware 1.44.2z

    problem:
    i cant believe im having problems with this (ive taken the cisco CCNA course), but after reformatting the older comp (comp 2), i cant get the newer comp (comp 1) onto the network. ive done the normal xp network wizard, but the newer comp will error out no matter what setting i put it on. so i did everything manually, setting the ip addresses, resetting and reconfiguring the router, but all i can get is that each computer can see the other, and i can access files on the newer computer using the older computer. however, the newer computer cannot access the older computers files. thanks for any help.

    I'll recommend the easy way, even though some forum members can't seem to understand why it works. :) Install the NETBEUI protocol on both machines, and I suspect you'll be browsing after that. It's on the XP CD in the VALUEADD directory.
