I have 2 p.c's running xp sp2. The first has a "SMC EZ Card" network card plus a seperate broadband connection (bt broadband) with external modem.
The second has a Realtek card, both are connected by a crossover cable.
They can both ping each other by name and i.p and the sharing of files is successful (except the program files). But the second p.c cannot access the web unless I use AnalogX Proxy software (on both machines), which to be honest isn't that reliable or stable, pages aren't always found.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled both network cards and connections umpteen times, have used the network wizard and done it manually. Ip of first computer is 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.0.2 on the second (automatic ip just doesn't work)
I have removed both firewalls and scanned for crap. Now using Zonealarm which doesn't block the proxy connection.
I really need the web on the second p.c to work properly but i am at a complete loss as to what the problem is.
Please help (noob speak prefered) :mrgreen:
