This is my first post...hope I'm in the right place. I am trying to network 2 lousy PCs. One is WINME the other XPPRO. I have internet cnxs on both, but I cannot see the shared printer and folders from either machine. I have file and print sharing enabled and they are in the same workgroup. The router (linksys wrt54g) is connected through a 2wire1000sw (sbc dsl modem) and then to the ME machine. I found out the hard way that the sbc modem is also a b router with wireless enabled. I turned off the routing and it is now a bridge. The xp machine is using a linksys wusb54 ver 4 usb wireless adapter and the connectivity is very low, but thats another story.
Anyway, I cannot get these PCs to talk. I remember somewhere back in my foggy head that ME will never "see" the XP machine but I am not sure of that. Even so, the XP machine should see the ME machine and be able to use the printer connected to that pc.
Can anyone help me with this. My friend is beginning to think I am an idiot!
