But tell me if you turned off the router's firewall. It does block shares. But I read your posts and see nothing about a share being made. Without that, the machine won't be seen.
And yes, there is a way to make a machine seen without a share, but for most, too techy.
I am trying to add an XP computer to our (already) Win7 computer.
Now...I have connected the xp computer to the external modem that gived the 7 it's signal by way of ethernet cable). I went through changing and matching up the workgroup names, and.....turned on "Network Discovery" on the 7 end....after everything is said and done...I DO get the internet signal to the xp, but knock out the 7, altogether. Ant ideas as to what I'm doing wrong? Thanks, Carl
