Hiya guys, bit of a silly one if i can.......trying to create a simple home network to share a printer...i have cable modem into a dlink di-524 router. Wired from there into the main pc. Wireless from router to pc upstairs. The wired pc has a printer attached. Both computers running xp sp2, both have internet access.
I run network set up wizard on both pc's, set workgroup name same on both, name one upstairs and one downstairs and i just cant get them to 'see' each other, wen i do network places, on the pc downstairs i can see the printer attached, but cant see the comp upstairs and vice versa....
Have tried a google search for a simple step by step guide nad having no luck.....could it be a setting in router to allow the pc to see each other?
any help would be great thanks
