Question: Hey there Andrew,
I have a Compaq laptop with network card preinstalled running win98, I also have a celeron pc with onboard network running xp. I have a cable modem set up on the nvidia network card (on pc) so I added a spare network card, dlink 528tx to the pc to run a network to use my laptop with it. I installd the drivers as dlink says then installed the card last as it says. It then went thru network wizzard and did its stuff. I then used the network wizzard disk created on floppy in a: for the laptop as it says. The can both ping each other when I manually do a ping (ip is 192.168.0.1 / 192.168.0.2) using microsoft client for networks for loging n. They both seem to know about ach other but when I go to network places neither of them can see the other. On the laptop (win98se) is shows the workgroup (yes both r in same workgroup) but whn go into entire nwtwork, nothing is there excpt the laptop. When i try to do same in xp on mian pc it does nothing. not even sees itself. The irq on the 2 network cards in pc are diff and there is no conflicts at all. I redid the network wizzard and this time lt it bridge them all on my main pc, now ip on pc is 192.168.0.1 (bridge only), so i set up laptop as 192.168.0.2, the pc can ping the laptop but th laptop cannt ping the pc, mayb something about bridgeing, I am a novice with networks, but do know a bit generally about pc. Any more info if nedd can be supplyed and any hlp would be appreciatd. Perhaps it is somthing about gateways, which I know less than nothing about. Any help is appreciated.
Thanks
Jaymie

Answer: Your best bet is to spend $40 and get a d-link router. That would make your life a lot easier. To use the internet connection sharing in XP you shouldn't need to turn on briding or anything like that. As far as the machines not seeing eachother on the XP open my computer and go to tools and folder options and view. Turn off simple file sharing. It is anything but! Go to a command prompt any type nbtstat -a and the ip of the other computer. See if it gives you a name
