Im having problems setting up a network with a laptop on a dlink 614+ router. I ran the network settup wizards on both machines (they both have xp pro) but i cant share printers or have a shared folder. Can anyone help me?

Make sure that NETBIOS over TCP/IP is enabled on both machines in TCP/IP Advanced Properties. If that doesn't work, consider installing the NETBEUI protocol on both machines.

Is it giving you any error messages ?

Try opening a command prompt, and type in ping <other pc> where <other pc> is the name of the other pc without the <>...

Also is the Workgroup names the same ?
