|To use my HP-XP-Netbook to access shareable files on my home wi-fi Network, I can ONLY connect via Start->Run->\\192.168.xxx etc. This is the IP address of my main HP-Vista32-Desktop PC on which the files are stored. |
Whilst this connection method works 100% OK, it is clumsy. It seems that the Netbook cannot recognize the main PCs name ("HPDesktop") or the Workgroup Name ("MSHOME").
However as connecting via IP address works, I wonder if this indicates a DNS or similar problem. Any ideas on how I can fix this would be much appreciated.
