I just pruchased Acer travelmate 2355LCI. I am attempting to add it to my home network using D-Link pc card. I can access the internet through my host computer but cannot share files or printer. When reading the network troubleshooter it suggested I ipconfig my new coumputer. When I do it just sits there looking at me. Using XP Professional on new computer, XP home on host. Any suggestions or comments?

are you using a router?
you need to make sure of the following PROVIDING both machines are winxp

1.they are on the same workgroup - right click on my compute>properties>computer name

2.they are within the same ip range -ex and

3.they both have folders that are marked as shared >right click>properties>sharing

4.you have no firewalls blocking access to file sharing -start>settings>control panel>firewall -also check out if you have NIS or another 3rd party firewall

try this first if you wanna do it manually.
let me know how you make out
