    ok i just installed my xp and thought that it was all up and running and i set up my internet but i cant get to any of the computers on my network (my internet is on the same network) but i can get onto the net, i have all of the most recient drivers, and softwear that i can find and i have reinstalled the nic card twice but there is no luck, any help would be nice

    ok...so you have a router. that means you use a private ip range. thats as easy as setting ur router to hand out as many ip addresses as you have computers. and making sure those computers are using those addresses. now, the "other" computers on ur network. what are they??? win98, winME???
