Someone else installed my original network & router to my cable connection, so I'm tackling this for the first time. I'm running 2mPro on both machines with a new Intellinet router replacing the one that died two or three days ago in an electrical storm. I had a difficult time getting on the internet, but finally after much fuss I finally discovered that by pulling the cable and electrical plug from the modem, then pulling the electric from from the router I could reconnect, after letting things bleed out, beginning with the cable connect to the modem, then the modem power. And finally the power to the router after all the lights were functioning on the modem.
Now all that's left is each computer seeing one another completely. From each computer I can see the other's icon. When I open there is nothing but the printer driver, printer folder from Control Panel. What is missing of course are the hard drives with newly assigned letters, I think starting with H:. I've not figured out how to get the hard drives to show up and thus be accessable. Can anyone give me a clue?
