Am sure this has been covered somewhere before, but my search produced nothing so will start a new topic.
I have attempted to set up a home wired/wireless network. I have two XP machines and an ME machine. I am running the network through a Netgear WPN824 v2 wireless home router. My XP laptop has a wired/wireless connection to the router. I run the XP laptop primarily through the wired connection. My desktop XP box is wired to the router. The XP boxes see each other and I can share files between them. The router is connected to a cable modem and I am having no trouble getting to the Internet from both XP boxes.
My problem is the ME box. I have a wired connection to the router for this box. The XP box cannot "see" the ME box, but on the ME box I get the icon (with the XP desktop computer name) for the XP desktop in the "network" page on the ME box. However, the ME box cannot ping the router and cannot access the XP box.
I am using DHCP on the router.
Any help appreciated.
