Hi all,

I've read though a few post regarding this and done everything suggested but unfortunately it did not work.

I am running 2 pc's and sharing the internet connection through a Netgear RP614v2 Router. The internet connections work fine on both computers but i cant get file/print sharing to work on either one.

I have created both of the 98 usernames on the xp comp

run the xp network setup wizard on both

checked they are both on the same work group

checked tcp/ip and file sharing are enabled on both

But it dosent work I can't even ping the machines. On the 98 machine, whenever i go to network neighbourhood and go click on entire network I get the error message "unable to browse the network" I was expecting workgroup to come up right? and then be able to brows the machines in workgroup.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

Disable all firewalls.

Back up the registry before trying this.

Backing up the Windows registry


http://www.onecomputerguy.com/net_tips.htm#nobrowse

1. Start REGEDIT
2. Go to Hkey_Local_Machine \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ Current_version \ Network \ Real mode net
3. Delete the line that says AUTOLOGON=0
4. Save the changes and reboot the system

You may have to wait a few moments (5 to 10 min.) and see if the computer appears in network neighborhood

The fact that you can't ping the machines indicates you have a firewall issue. On each machine, do this.

Open a DOS window and type:

IPCONFIG /ALL >C:\RESULT.TXT

Open C:\RESULT.TXT with Notepad and copy/paste the entire results here.

If you can't ping either machine, at least by IP address, there almost has to be some sort of firewall blocking your access.

With zonealarm turned off on both machines and xp firewall also turned off , it can't be a firewall issue can it?

There really isn't any other thing that would cause both machines to fail to respond to pings, since the TCP/IP is obviously working to allow you to get to the Internet. In the past, I've had to actually uninstall ZoneAlarm at times to get it to release it's grip on the machine. Try that on one machine and see if you can suddenly ping it.

At this point, I think we need to see a HijackThis log to see if we can identify the firewall component that is blocking your access.

The only thing I see is a lot of Symantec stuff for their AV. What exactly is the version you have installed? Some of their products mysteriously included some firewall characteristics.

The fact that you connect to the Internet, but can't ping either way pretty much has to be some kind of firewall component. :confused:

I'm using the corporate edition of NAV

Could the problem be a setting on the router?

Also Since I cant access nework neighbourhood on the 98 machine u think it might be worth uninstalling and then re-installing the networking components?

Check your router configuration. It may be allowing traffic to the internet but not between lan machines.
