Got a question about my XP computer and My Network Places.
My network is simple, an XP desktop;
XP Home SP3 32bit
2.4 AMD 64 Processor
Albatron K8T800 Main Board
250Gb HD NTFS
1.5 Gb RAM
GForce 7800 GS
NVIDIA Driver Version 18.104.22.16896
Samsung 24" SyncMaster Monitor
Connected to internet via Ethernet to a Cable ISP modem. Modem also broadcasts a wireless signal for laptops.
Two Toshiba Windows7 laptops, depending who is home at the time.
An HP Officejet 6500a is connected to my XP computer via USB.
The Toshiba laptops can use the printer and I can see shared folders between computers, but here is my question;
When I go to Network Places on my XP desktop computer, there is nothing shown in there, except a ‘My Web Sites on MSN’ icon. Not sure where that came from. There is supposed to be shared folders and computers and I believe the modem is supposed to be in there?
I can go to ‘View workgroup computers’ and see all the computers in the network and double-click on each one and see the shared folders and printer. But I should see something in ‘My Network Places’ yes?
