recently i bought a wireless network card so i can connect my notebook and desktop together P2P. I am able to get a connection but thats where it ends. Cant share files, cant ping, cant do anything with eachother..
Ive sure ive installed everything properly since my notebook and desktop are able to pick up each others signal.. however i am unable to ping each other or access each others drives even though file sharing has been enabled for full access but anyone..
I used static IP addressing cos i dont really need ICS on my notebook.
The WORKGROUP name is the same on both comps.
My firewall software has been turned off on my desktop and i havent installed anything on my notebook.
Now on my desktop Im able to see (but not access since i cant communicate) the notebook in network places but not vice versa.
When I try to ping each other i just get a request timeout.
ping Notebook 2 desktop = request timeout
ping desktop 2 notebook = request timeout
My notebook is running win XP Pro and my desktop is win 2000 Pro..
Ive tried uninstalling networking on my notebook but still not working..
But im pretty sure its a problem with my notebook and XP because networking doesnt even work on an ethernet LAN
