Hi

My network worked fine untill I formatted both of the pc's(girlfriends pc and mine ) and now after I installed a fresh now dutch version of tis great os (xp ;)) It won't work anymore they can't see each other ? The Link is present the icon show's there connected they both have the same workgroup "WORKGROUP''. I tried to manually configure. 1st one 192.168.0.1 the other one 192.168.0.2 the gateway and dns for the internet is 192.168.0.1 (subnet 255.255.255.0)
did not work the won't see each other ?? Then let windows chose the ip's nothing there 1st of I get 0.0.0.0 after a few seconds I get an valid Ip but again no able to connect. Then I looked to the fysical adress and here it is I think. Client has 00-C0-DF-0C-13-64 and the nic for the network on the server has FF-FF-FF-FF-FF-FF
the nic for the cable internet has 00-40-95-30-9C-CF

Could this FF-FF-FF-FF-FF-FF be the problem and if yes wath can I do about it ?

Hi, I was wondering if both or your computer both have the "ipx/spx/netbios" protocal installed?? This is usually what I have to install before I can share files with the computers on my network. The Xp utility should have installed this.. if not, then do.
