I have a desktop running WindowsXP, with two Realsys network cards. One card allows me to go online. The other card, untill recently allowed me to go online with my laptop, running WindowsME. At My Network Places, the XP shows both cards, working perfectly, and with ipconfig, both cards show up. I can ping 192.168.0.230 that the ipconfig shows, and 192.168.0.200 wich the laptops winipcfg shows. However, when I go to the laptop, I can't ping the desktops IP Address.
The automatic setup for the laptop was so wrong, I had to set it manually.
