Help me with my networking issue???


Striking Master
Hi, first and foremost, let me introduce myself as zapoqx...

On to the Topic:
I am new to networking. I have a router now and had to connect my system (Computer A) to my Mom's System (Computer B). I have a Cable Modem connected to the router. And I have a 3rd connection for the Playstation 2 so I could use it once in a while to connect (probably gonna have to learn some tweaking with that).

Here is the setup:
Both of us are Using Windows XP Pro w/ SP2
I am using an Ethernet Card to connect to the router.
My mom is using a Wireless Network Card to connect to the Access Point which is connected to the Router.
We are both using Zone Alarm.

From my understanding, I believe everything is setup.

Now when I check the network via view all in workgroup, I see Computer B and my Computer A. But when I try to connect to Computer B, it hesitates, then says that there is an error and that the Network Path was not found.

On Computer B, I (Computer A) am not even detected.

So what is going on here? Much help greatly appreciated, thanks in adavance!

HEY! Don't forget to turn zonealarm back on.

You want to go to the zone alarm local area network connections and identify the machines you have as trusted. Type in the IP addresses of your two computers. Now you should be able to acess each other freely and block any other machines. If you add more machines then you can just add them as trusted.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
