Hi Edward, after many weeks of having the same problems with Networking, I
installed Network Magic on my machine and it solved all of my problems.
After seeing how Network Magic worked fine I investigated more why I
couldn't do it out of the box and came across the main reason for most
everyones problems. Firewalls! On Zonealarm after I allowed all of my IP
Addresses to be allowed in it worked fine, In Norton I stopped blocking a
lot of what it had blocking from install, and everything worked fine. There
is a website run by a MVP Bob Lin I think called www.chicagotech.net
helped out tremendously. It might take you a few days to weed through all
the info, but it will help. I have since un-installed Network Magic
(although I did like the program overall) and am using my system fully now.
Hope that helps a litle..
