Home Networking Quandary

By mason_temp ·
I am attempting to connect to PCs running Windows ME in a home network. I am also using ICS for my cable modem connection to share between the two. Oddly enough, both computers are able to use the internet connection, but I am not able to see either machine on the network when viewing from the other machine. I have tried numerous methods of locating the machine, and it always tells me that the shared name given cannot be found. Again the internet connection sharing, which runs into one of the machines (which obviously has two NICs) is working just fine. I have two boxes, one with two NICs, the other with one, and they are both running Windows ME.

Please help!!!

The proble

by ChrisMS In reply to Home Networking Quandary

Check that you are entering the correct name for the second PC. Are both PC's in the same workgroup, can it be seen in network neighbourhood. Finally, check that the option to share files and printers is checked.
Hope this jelps
