Btw, make sure both of your computers has "Client for Microsoft Networks" and "File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks" running.

No, you DO NOT need NWLink Net BIOS nor NWLink IPX/SPX, both of these are for Novell.

All you need are:

Client for Microsoft Networks
File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks
TCP/IP

Btw,

You may as well try to run the Network Setup Wizard on your XP. This is what I really hate about XP, those stupid wizards.

Start -> All Programs -> Accessoires -> Communications

Honestly, before you do anything, if you say you can access the files of your computer from your wife's, then I would definitely check out her setup first. Cause it seems that your XP is having no problem showing up on the network.

xp wizards??!?!? lol booooooo
Yeah I know, I hate it too, especially the network one. I've seen so many problems caused by that stupid wizard. Most people has run this wizard when they first installed XP, cause it will come out automatically, but it's really sucks and make things even worst.

Fook no:cryin I did what you said except that I couldnot remoce the tcp/ip on my computer. I reinstalled the other ones and nothing... Now my computer wont even access the net...nothing
It just sits there and taunts me. And to make things better I cant access my computer with my wifes :(
Atleast the wife's computer can access the net...
:(

I told you the problem is most likey on your wife's side, cause your XP did show up on the network before.

Anyway, trust me, you don't need those NWLink IPX things, they are for Novell "NetWare"... "NW"Link... ;)

Just remove those and reinstall Client for Microsoft Networks and File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks, and make sure you have TCP/IP.

Then try to run that Network Setup Wizard again.

Or...

For the advanced way... goto:

Start -> Control Panel -> Network Connections

On the top menus, you will see Advanced, go and select Advanced Settings, make sure you see those Client for Microsoft Networks and File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks bindings checked.

Btw, you said now that your wife cannot access your computer anymore, make sure you didn't have the build-in Firewall enabled, cause they might re-enabled for you when you run that wizard thing.

;)

Shadow,

I kind of feel bad cause it's so hard to give you good support like this over the internet... :(

Hmm... did you try all those steps that I told you about? And you can at least access the Internet with your XP throught your router, right? Please let me know what's happening.

;)

No no, don't have to reinstall everthing.

Ok, really, please run that network wizard(in XP) for now, please try it first.

Then... reboot... and run ipconfig and see if you got any ip...

Then let me know what you get first...

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the network card and nothing...
Then I decided to take a look at my router to see the green light indicating that there was a connection there and guess what...nothing, so I switch cables. Still nothing.
I took a look at the networ card and thelight are blinking :confused:
I have never seen them do that. Could it be that my setwork card is fooked and it just so happened that it broke while I was messing with the network stuff?
I tried pinging stuff and nothing. I cant even access the router that I am plugged into :lol

Could all this be dues to a messed up card? I will find out once I take the card from my wife'scomputer and put it in mine
Hmm... very possible. Btw, did your Devices Manager shows any yellow ! for your network card?

You tried to switch cable, but did you try to switch the port? Cause I heard my occasions that ports fail on Linksys routers. But strange that you still see green light though... :confused:

look at what I got
Guys, really, you do not need anything with NWLink... they are for Novell network with NetWare, and you guys don't have anything with NetWare on your networks. ImagineParadise, trust me, even if you remove all those NWLink stuff, your network will still work... :fact ;)

What is NWLink? Click here.

Look, this is all I've in my settings(Client for MS Network, File sharing..., QoS Scheduler(you don't need this), and TCP/IP), and my network works fine with XP, 98, Me and 2000 machines all in the same network and they all can communicate with each other... :fact

Ok, here is something you may try. Since you said you can communicate with your router but not Interent, then it seems that your XP might having problems resolving Internet addresses, and this have probably due to your DNS settings.

Normally, your router will assign you the router's own IP address as your DNS server, which is probably 192.168.1.1 in your case. This should work, but sometimes your computer might don't like this setting. So, you should try putting in the DNS addresses from your ISP. You can get these addresses by login into your Linksys router and then click on "Status".

Then, goto your network card's TCP/IP properties and put those addresses there yourself as your DNS server(s).

If after you've try this, then you can see if it's because of the DNS settings.

Ok, lets say your right val. Your way is pretty simple. Dry and cut instructions. But, if your right, why hasnent it worked for him?
That's a very good question. :( Computer is like a box of chocolat, you'll never know what you're going to get... :lol

Well, right now, I hope he can get at least the Internet working with his XP, then we can look into more of his XP/Me communication. Honestly, I really don't mind which way he uses, I just hope he can get it working.

:)

Anyway, this is a screen shot of my XP settings:

how many computers and what kind of router do you have?

Me-2 computers, Linksys 4port Router (just like Shadow.) cept I dont have that jacked up OS (ME). I switched from 98 on my old one to xp pro. So both 'puters have xp pro
I'm using a Netgear, but this week I'm testing a Linksys with wireless for a friend. I donno, but I just switched the routers and plug-plug-plug, reboot all the machine, still works like before. There is also a laptop with wireless that I'm testing the new WPA security with, just forget the WPA with Linksys for now, they still need a better firmware and driver. Btw, the laptop is on XP and no problem communicating with other machine. The other machines are all plugged to a switch that uplink to the router's switch.
