I have Windows Vista Ultimate on my main desktop computer and Windows XP
Professional on my laptop. They are both connected wirelessly to my D-link
wireless router and they can both access the internet without any problems.
The Vista machine has one password protected user account and the guest
account is off. The XP Pro laptop has one non-password user account and the
guest account is also off.
Both machines are set to the workgroup name of "WORKGROUP" and file and
printer sharing is also enabled on both machines.
However, neither machine can see eachother, they ping eachother no problem,
but I just cannot get them to see eachother at all. Its so frustrating!!
Anyone got any suggestions? The Windows Vista help suggestions haven't
helped me at all.
