Hi everyone

I have a Wanadoo-a789 Model: dv4210-wa as a router and 2 computers both running windows xp and were both reinstalled not long ago, for a while they were able to talk to each other but for some reasson they just can't see each other now, they can't even ping each other.
This is even with the windows and router firewall turned off!!!

What makes you think ping would work?

Are the firewalls set to allow such?

Are the addresses proper? (you didn't tell.)

Ping

Ping is a low level networking capability, if you can't ping you can't do nothing.

The computers are on fixed ip address and as stated the firewalls are not even on but in answer to your question yes they are allowing file and sharing.

While all levels of expertise arrive here, if I can't have the address of your 192.168.0.x and such I can't check the basics.

Best of luck,

The ip address of computers are 10.0.0.12 and 10.0.0.13
I think you will find most basics I have already checked.

Thanks

Since the IPs are hardcoded...

Try a crossover cable from one machine to the other and the ping again to see if the router is the issue.

Remember that I only know what you tell so if you ware an expert that's fine but don't take offense as I know nothing but what you reveal.

Cable

Yes ok I fully understand that, point taken.

I was actually going to try a spear wireless hub I have got but the crossover cable is a good idea as well, think I shall try that first.

Thanks

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
