    I have 2 PC's, both running XP-Home. Both are formatted NTFS. I have a Linksys DSL router doing DHCP. I see all of the PC's listed in the DHCP client table( I have a laptop running win-98 also on the net). I cannot get any PC to see any other PC or any printer that is setup to be shared. I haved tried the XP home networking wizard with no luck. It appears to configure everthing with no problem but I just can't see anything other that the PC that i'm using on the LAN. I can look at "MSHOME" double click that, see the shared folders ONLY on the computer that i'm on. I have no problems outside of the LAN, the DSL/Internet side of it works flawlessly.
    The devices checked under my LAN tab are:
    Client for Microsoft Networks
    File & Print Sharing
    NWLink NETBios
    TCP/IP(with DHCP disabled)(IP is assigned automatically)

    Thanks for any help!!!!

    Did you enable the internet firewall for either NIC in XP? is there one on your router? One of my friends did this and could'nt see either computer. The MS firewall sucks anyway and since you're behind a router just use ZoneAlarm.

    I remember XP tried to enable that by default but I made sure to go back and disable it. I had Norton Internet Security running on both but I disabled that too just to see. I didn't make a difference.
