I have two computers at home that are already connected to the Internet via a Linksys Router BEFSR41 (wired). Their internet connection is fine but I have tried many times to allow the two computers to see each other (let alone share any files) but to no avail. Windows XP is used on both machines and I have tried running the Home Network Wizard which seems rather simple but like I said before still fails to let both computers even to see each other. What I meant by not seeing each other is, when I clicked on My Network Places in File Explorer there is no icon for another computer.|
I tried to directly connect the two computers using the same cat5e cable and do the same process again but still no success.
I have tried reading some articles on the net including this one but still no idea what I have done wrong.
Help on the matter is appreciated. Thanks
