Friends:

I am having problems with XP Home Networking. My situation is like this: I have two PCs running fully updated XP Pro and a Belkin wireless router connected to a Motorola Surfboard cable modem. PC1 is hardwired directly to the router. PC2 connects to the router through a Belking PCI wireless card. Both can connect to the internet. The Home Network Wizard has been run on both using the same settings. When opening My Network Places, however, only PC2 can see its own shared folders. When I try to "View workgroup computers" on PC1, I get a message that says "<workgroup> is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource." ... and so on. When I try to repair the Local Area Connection of PC1, I get a message that says "Windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be completed: Renewing your IP address." ... etc. Any of the above works successfully with PC2. Obviously the problem lies within PC1.

When I run ipconfig on PC1, I get the following:

I have also run browstat status on PC1 with the following results:

Status for domain MSHOME on transport \Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{9C354F48-AD4F-4391-92
D5-D73CBA458B7F}
Browsing is NOT active on domain.
Master browser name is held by: SMOKIN
Master browser is running build 2600

PC1 pinging itself and the router results in the following:

C:\Utilities>ping 192.168.0.2

Pinging 192.168.0.2 with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from 192.168.0.2: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128

I've tried to do my research on this problem to solve it myself, but I cannot find a situation similar enough to my own to find the solution. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hah! Ijust solved my own problem. To those who find this same problem, go to Add/Remove Programs and get rid of Sygate Personal Firewall. I didn't even know it was running anymore because I never saw the icon in the system tray. Amazing that so many problems occured because of one little program.
