forgot to mention. my laptop is currently dual-booting my old vista HP installation and the new 7 ultimate installtion.
I have recently (2 months) aquired an Acer aspire T180 reconditioned. I removed vista and decided to install Server 2003 Standard R2 Edition 32-bit. Now my vista laptop could see the Acer no problems. Could remote, couldn't join domin as it was home premium, could share folders wirelessly. Was working fine.
I also recently (about a week) upgraded my laptop (that i have had for 3-4 years) from vista HP to 7 Ultimate (still 32-bit)Now, my 7 laptop cannot ping, remote or share files with the server let alone join the domain.
The current networking system of my machine is as follows:
255.0.0.0 intternal subnet (class A network
Both machines have wireless cards
Both machines ethernet ports are disabled to save resources
Server is acting as a DHCP/DNS server with JanaServer2 proxy
Currently i can only log in remotely via Logmein. (which doesn't allow you to transfer files between different machines)
Can anyone help pls?
