Nathan

I have purchased new machine with vista home premium and have connected to
wireless home network. have managed to get internet connection working but
the vista machine cannot see the old xp machine on the network. The xp
machine can see the vista one but not access it. Neither of the machines can
ping each other or access any files from each other. I have installed the
lltd thingy. ????????

I am having the same problem. The network will set up in Vista, but the
Vista PC cannot see the XP. Have you been successful in getting it resolved?

be missing a simple step but I have spent 6+ hours solid on trying to get it
going and I've just about given up....

I was having the same problem. I resolved this by disabling the 3rd party
firewall (Norton) that came with the new Vista machine. I you use the
windows firewall instead, the computers can see each other.

Make sure your workgroup is the same for all of the computers. Also be sure
that the Vista network settings are correct.

Here's the best instructions I've found for setting the Vista Network up:

I have the same problem - Vista and XP. My main computer is on Vista
and my network is set up there. I have done all the correct steps (that
I know of) Both computers report that the network is working, but when I
try to see the XP computer with the Vista - no joy. The XP computer
shows my network, but when I try to connect - "limited connectivity".
Again, no joy.
I spent three hours on line with Belkin changing settings and running
tests. Belkin rep finally gave up and told me to send back the router
for replacement -- new router arrived and guess what -- same problem. I
am about ready to throw the thing in the river. Anybody got this thing
figured out yet? I have given up. (By the way - the XP computer can
connect with my neighbor's network!!)

I have a similar problem but within two Vista operating systems.
When I establish Internet Connection Sharing between the two, are there
any Windows Firewall modifications to be made manually? Also like the
Norton mentioned in a previous post, does the Windows Security
Essentials have any things to do with LAN or ICS funtions? Thanks
