I have 2 computers connected to the gateway/router via ether net. One computer has WinXP Pro and the other has WinXP Home. Both can connect to the internet but when I tried to get a LAN setup by the Network setup wizard, the XP Home mach. shows up in my network places but the XP Pro mach isn't showing up anywhere. ipconfig -all returns the following on the XP Pro mach.

and basically identical results on the XP Home mach.

I think what I need to do is enter the correct DNS Suffix in TCP/IP properties but it's not clear to me how to do that properly.

Thanks, Chuck

Thanks anyway folks! I got it working. One of my machines didn't have a client or sharing under network properties.
