    general network problem

    Hi All
    I am trying to setup a wireless network in my home. I have done this before
    but this time I can not get anything working.
    I have an xp desktop attached to a belkin wireless router. I also have a
    vista laptop with in intel wireless nic.
    I have setup the router and can attach to that network but niether computer
    can see the other. Each can ping itself and the router but not each other.
    I have turned all firewalls off (temporaily) and the results is the same. A
    friend said that he thought that vista's file nad printer sharing service is
    not working properly. How can I provr or disprove this theory.

    Thanks
    MM

    Must install LLTD on XP machine

    For Vista and XP machines, you must installthe Link Layer Topology Discovery (LLTD) Responder (KB922120) on the XP machine. Search the Internet for "Vista see XP" and you will get a bunch of info.

    You need to check more systematic list of items to check
    (e.g. folder sharing) and in which order.
    http://www.ezlan.net/ will probably be helpful. Vista and
    XP use different networking setup methods, I think, so you may need
    first to select one and then make the other conform.

    I have followed all these steps and more but to no avail. As I said, the
    connection to the network succeds but neither computer can see the other.

    Install the Link Layer Responder

    Did you install the link layer responder? It is the only way to see an XP PC on a Vista machine. Click on the link I provided download the software and your good to go. Here is an article on Small Net Builder that walks you through everything to check.
