    Is the XP machine NTFS or FAT file system?

    Hmmm. I thought that may be the problem thinking that ME couldn't see NTFS across a network. I was wrong. According to Microsoft: "NTFS is not directly supported under Windows Me. NTFS volumes can be accessed only by Windows NT locally. If Windows Me is installed on a computer already running Windows NT with an NTFS volume, it cannot access any information stored on the volume. However, Windows Me can access NTFS volumes across a network connection."

    Will look around some more.

    first of all, when connecting across a network to a shared resource your OS does not need to support NTFS. you are connecting to a shared resource. the only part NTFS plays in that whole process is in which permissions you get to that specific resource.

    are both machines able to connect to the internet??

    what do you see when you click start -> run -> type "ipconfig /all"(without the " of course =])???

    what ip address are they getting??

    need more info to help ya dude.

    You have to install the intel software also from Intel, when you do set it to peer to peer, name your network name, (I called mine Intel), Put in a five diget network key, or Data Encription # (I used 12345) DO NOT INSTALL THE INTERNET SHARING SOFTWARE FROM INTEL! it doesn't work, Use the window setup for home networking to set this up! I just set another set-up like this on Monday at a friends and It works great!
