Home networking solved!

Discussion in 'Windows Networking' started by Nigel Andrews, Feb 17, 2004.

  1. I found that disabling the internal XP firewall solved my problem.

    I had a working XP/ME network and added a new XP PC.
    In using the Network Wizard on the original XP to create a disk to use on
    the new XP, it knocked that (original) XP PC off the network!
    The disk did however add the new one so I could see it from the ME PC.

    I guess running the Network wizard enabled the firewall where it wasn't
    before. Tho' it didn't enable it on the new XP PC - strange!

    Thanks for sharing your success in troubleshooting your network. So many
    times a software firewall issue is to blame for network difficulties.
