    problem connecting laptop-desktop via cross cable & internet by mo

    I have VIsta loaded on My Laptop, i had been trying to connect it to my
    desktop by cross cable by ethernet cards in the usual way (1 host & 1 guest
    by assinging their IP as 192.168.0.1 & 2) but it is not working. Laptop
    (VISTA) is able to ping Desktop (XP) but not vice versa.

    Moreover i tried to connect to internet by my mobile & vodafone connection
    through USB cable which doesn't work out, while the same process worked on my
    desktop (XP) in an instant. Could this be an issue with VISTA or could there
    be something wrong with network components of VISTA on my laptop? Please help

    1. For the access sharing issue, I would check the firewall first.
    2. For access the Internet, posting the results of ipconfig /all on both
    computers may help.

    thanks for your replies.

    actually one the very first day when i got the laptop i uninstalled nokia
    internet security from it and forgot all about it since then, but sony people
    told me the problem is because of it, so i need to backup all my data, start
    system restore which will reinstall norton and then uninstall it according to
    thoer way, but i just found a norton applications removal tool from nortons
    site and now all well. might help some other people with similiar problem,
    thanks again
