No "My Network Places"
This refers only to WinXP/2. If there is a better NG I would appreciate
being told about it.

I have two PCs on a home network. Both PCs use WinXP/2. The desktop PC is
connected to the router via Ethernet wire. The laptop is connected
wirelessly. Both PCs can access the Internet. Both can access Outlook
Express for emails and NGs. Both PCs can ping each other (after
configuration of the software firewall) and "localhost" etc.

In Start the laptop displays "My Network Places" below "My Computer." In
Start the desktop does not display "My Network Places." I can access shared
files on the laptop from the desktop. I cannot access shared files on the
desktop from the laptop. I set up both PCs alongside each other so that both
would be configured the same.

How do I obtain "My Network Places" on my desktop?

Thanks in advance,

Peter.
