Networking and sharing problem
Thanks in advance for any help with my problems.. I have AT&T DSL with a
2Wire 2701HG-B Gateway. I am trying to share files using Windows Media Player
11 between 2 laptops (both Dell Inspiron 1525) and an Xbox 360. I am running
Mcafee Security Center on both laptops. When I have WMP 11 search for our
laptops they cannot find each other, but they can both find the Xbox. When I
use the Xbox to try to find the laptops it can't find either of them. I have
media sharing turned on on both laptops. I have even gone as far as
completely removing Mcafee from both pc's with no luck. Also when I map the
network, the laptops and xbox all show up. The Xbox has four green bars (like
cell phone service) beside it, the laptop doesn't have anything. I have
tried everything I can think of. Please someone help before I just throw
everything in the garbage and light it on fire. :-)

Hi
Make sure that the Software Firewall on each computer allows free local
traffic. If you use 3rd party Firewall On, Vista/XP Native Firewall should
be Off, and the active Firewall has to adjusted to your Network IP numbers
on what is some time called the Trusted Zone (consult your 3rd Party
Firewall instructions.
