    I have a new second p/c that I just hooked up. Both of them are running w2k & are connected to a D-link router. I can get to the internet from both computers and both units are in the router log. My problem is that they don't communicate with each other. I would like to use the newer larger unit as as server or main storage unit but I cant get them to see the other. I have them set up to automatically detect settings. 1 IP address is 192.168.0.131 and the other is 192.168.0.190. Please help

    From computer #1 do the following:

    go to start run and type //192.168.0.190
    go to start run and type //the#1ComputerName

    From computer #2 do the following:

    go to start run and type //192.168.0.131
    go to start run and type //The#2ComputerName

    then try to ping both ips

    Please results and ipconfig/all

    NOTE: for future reference, This should have been posted in the networking forum.
