|For quite some time, I have had a home network through a linksys router that has allowed a laptop to share a printer and files through the desktop. It stopped working a week ago and I am at a loss to figure out why.|
Both are running XP Pro. The Desktop recognizes that there is a network and workgroup, but does not see any computer (including the desktop) as part of it.
I have tried reinstalling the network, renaming the workgroup, turning off the firewall/virus/spyware protection, renaming the computer, and various combinations of the above. I have tried system restore and restoring the registry. It appears that all the clients on the adapter are working.
The desktop can ping the laptop and access the internet The laptop will recognize the pc eee (on linux) as well as itself.. But the desktop is invisible even on the desktop.
Any help would be most appreciated.
