Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Professional, 1.995 GHz / 1013 MB
Dear All,

I have 2 PC (Windows XP) at home connected with LAN. I could play networking game (DoTA) between 2 PC.
But I can not share directory between 2 PC.
I can not browse other PC trough "My Networkin Places"

Below are the network Setting:
IP PC1: 192.168.1.3
IP PC2: 192.168.1.5
Mask: 255.255.255.0
GW: 192.168.1.1
DNS:192.168.1.1

Should someone can help with this problem, I'd highly appreciate.

regards,
Frans

Make sure that both PCs are on same workgroup

Right-click My Computer -> Properties -> Computer Name
TAB
click "Change" and note that Workgroup is selected and says
the same for both computers.

also Turn off your firewalls on both computers just as a test
and see if it that helps .

one other thing... are the PCs Pro or Home edition?

Thanks

Keep us informed :)
Also note Netsetup does workgroup and everything, better that doing it manually
