I have a Lan with a Gateway desktop running XP Home wired RJ-45 through a Linksys 5-port hub (about 5 years old), and just bought an HP Pavillion notebook running Vista Home Premium. I plugged it into the hub, and am having problems with "IPv6 connectivity limited". The Vista notebook can see the hub, and can see the XP computer, but can only connect to the internet through the network; it cannot see the shared drives and files on the XP desktop. The XP desktop can see the Vista notebook on the map, but cannot see the shared drive or folders either. Everything on both computers is shared.
Any ideas? Is the old hub not compatible with Vista/IPv6? Is there something missing in my XP?
