Networking a Mac and Windows XP Pro PC:
#1 My Broadband Internet Modem is connected to my "wired' router,
#2 A cable is connected from the router to the mac,
#3 A cable is connected from the router to the PC,
Mac was easy to set up as it did it automatically and I didn't have do lift a finger, it just worked.
PC - won't connect to the router full stop, I tried to ping it with its address 10.0.0.138 but it was unreachable, which means everything else is unreachable. It was when VIsta was on the machine, and the net was working when the PC had XP on it originally.
I tried connected the internet modem directed to the PC just to connect it to the internet but that was not possible either, couldn't ping that either.
I don't care about have either computer seeing each other, I only want the internet shared.
SUBNET MASK 255.255.255.0
DNS SERVER: 10.0.0.138
Would be great if anyone has any ideas on my problem. XP Has just been installed after removing horrible Vista
