i have a laptop and a desk top. i am trying to move files off of my laptop and onto the desktop. i am trying to use the file and settings transfer wizard but i am unable to make it work. i have windows XP on both computers and both are up to date as far as i know. i also am using the correct link cable. when i attempt to connect the two i get no response as far as an achieved connection. i have tried everything including creating my own network, which i also could not get to work. i am really frustrated and hence i am posting on this site. any idea will be helpful. thanks.

have you given each computer an I.P. address so they can talk to each other?

Are both these computers updated to SP2?

Exactly how are you connecting the two computers together? Are they networked using a router - or null modem cable - or ?

Have you used the "Network Setup Wizard" in the control panels of both computers?

Do you have the computers set for filesharing?

both are up to date with SP2. i am using a null modem cable or a crossover cable, whatever you want to cal it. as far a i know both are set for file sharing. as far the network setup wizard i have tried that. i do not have control of my main internet access as i am at college. i figure that is probably the reson the network didnt work. but i can just not figure out why the transfer wizard would not work.

If you used the networking wizard all the settings should have been done.

In any case, the following should help:

The lack of response usually indicates that you've exceeded the knowledge of the folks that are following this thread. Not having anything useful to contribute, we usually wait to see if anyone else has some input.

I subscribe to the "No Thread Left Behind" school. That is, if it's marked as "Unread" in my browser, I have to take a look at it. Unfortunately, being gone for 2 days it takes me ˝ day just to read this one (and I follow at least 4 or 5 other forums here - and another 4 or 5 separate forums on the web.)
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
