My wife and I both have WinXP Home. We are hardwired to a Linksys wireless router (started out wireless, but it was slow). Things use to work fine, but about a month ago (maybe), I was no longer able to connect to her PC, though she can still connect to mine. I have changed the workgroup names on both PCs, turned off all firewalls, etc. If I try to map a network drive from my PC to hers, and browse the network, I can see the workgroup (HOME), but if I click on it, my PC just sits there searching until it times out. I can not even see my own PC. Any other way to make a connection has teh same problem. I am able to ping all machines. If I enable the wireless card, that does not work either. I have made no "intentional" changes to either PC (though who knows what MS Auto Update may have done). I am using static IP addressing, but it ahs always been that way.
