I have 2 pc's with xp pro on them, a hub and dsl connection. My main computer which can access the internet works fine but when I try to hook up another nic card in the pc so I can run a network with the pc in the living room it doesn't work. I followed MS instructions and I also checked all the forums but nothing seems to help. At times the PC in the living room can actually see the main pc shared folder but when you try to access the folder it says you don't have permission contact administrator. Also, when trying to play multi player games even if I assign IP addresses on both pc's I can't play the games because it doesn't see the other pc. In either case It's not working. I had it working before with the living room pc running xp and the main computer running windows 98. Everything worked fine. The only difference was that I used WINGATE so the living room pc can access the internet. Anyhelp in setting up the network with XP PRO would be appreciated. Thanks.
