I've been trying desperately to network my two machines through a Belkin
router. The XP Media Center machine is connected via an ethernet cable, and
the Vista is wireless - both connect to the Internet without issues. XP can
see the Vista files and access them just fine, but Vista, while being able to
spot the XP machine occasionally when I go to the network area to query what
is being shared on the network, cannot see any of the XP shared files (two
drives and the other standard shared materials like printers and such) - it
gives a "The network path was not found" error. Also, the XP machine doesn't
show up on the Vista machine's network map.
Both machines are completely up to date, optional updates and all. Both are
running Comodo firewall software - I've tried running them naked, and this
didn't help. I've put the XP on the wireless network, trying to see if that
might be an issue, and this didn't fix it.
Please help! I've run out of ideas.
