I'm having problems networking a friend's desktop running Windows XP Home Edition and his laptop running Windows XP Media Center Edition. I've run the Network Setup Wizard on the desktop and saved the settings to a flash drive. Then I ran the file on the flash drive on the laptop. Even though I did this, the computer are still not showing that they are networked together. The router he's using is a Linksys. I was going to see if the computers could ping each other but could not get an IP address for either computer when I ran IPConfig. Perhaps someone could help me?
