I will try suggested.
I can see no LAN icon in either system tray. I have manually set each IP address and enabled NetBIOS over TCP/IP. One possibility is that my laptop has faux Windows that can't update itself, also I am trying to network XP home with XP Pro, not sure if that would be a problem. There is no hardware conflicts, both computers belong to the same workgroup, I have run Network Setup Wizard on each, I have pinged all computers on my network, they have basic connectivity. Also maybe the bus speed is too fast for network adaptor but that involves changing the CMOS settings which is a bit out of my depth. I have tried reinstalling my network adaptors & respective clients. I have switched off both Zone Alarm & Windows Firewall.
I really am at a loss?!?
