No Network Neighborhood

By gssp1 ·
I am trying to configure Windows XP Home Ed. to netwok peer-to-peer. File and prin sharing is enable and a the Shared documents folder icon indicates that it is shared. A printer's icon indicates that it is shared. I have disabled the firewall but whenever I try to view My Network Places, nothing shows. Then when I try to view workgroup computers, the system does nothing or I get a nor responding incation. What is my possible configuration problem?

Do you have the 'Client for Microsoft Networks' installed in Network properties?

You also need to make sure that TCP/IP is properly installed and that the addresses are in the same subnet. For example computer 1:, computer 2: etc. Also make sure the subnet mask is also entered. And, enable the guest account.

Good luck

Is the PC on the same workgroup as the other computers? Check in Start/ControlPanel/PerformanceandMaintenance/System [ComputerName] tab.
