ok, so i have done everything Windows (both systems use Pro) has told me to do regarding setting up a network. ive gone to the control panel, then to Internet Options, and LAN settings to "auto detect", ive repaired connections, ive redone the network setup wizard and i cant seem to fix it.

my main PC cannot find my server and vise versa.

whenever i try and click on the other PC's icon it thinks for 10-25 seconds and then says "\\IHATEYOUAEG is not accessable"

screen shot example:

this is really ticking me off and i am kinda outta ideas.

This happened to me a while back. I found that sometimes rebooting both machines helped. Are you getting a "Limited or no connectivity" error as well?

Also, what network hardware are you using? i.e NiCs, Hub, Router, etc.

im using a US Robotics router, a generic ethernet thing built into my sever's mobo (i could find out if it's needed) and a NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller for my new PC.

i have rebooted both quite a few times. both connect to the internet and can play games together (like, i just connect to a CoD game and my friend was able to join.. but of course it was on the internet and that wasnt a network)

im at a loss at this.

any suggestions would be welcome.

routers take a bit to set up, but since switches dont have firewalls and just send bandwidth everywhere its what i use most. almost no set up. make sure both the computers have a netbios and are using the TCP/IP protocol. check hardware connections and layout, to ensure everything is physicly set. disable windows firewall (really dosent help much anyway, its best to have it off if you already have a router). nortan antivirus has a firewall inbedded so deep its almost impossible to remove, so make sure you dont have nortan. automaticly obtain any internal ip adresses.

o ok, its all a matter of security on your user accounts, logg in as an admin OR make sure you account has ALL administrator power. make a new account if nessasary. its very important that you enable sharing on your C:\ drives on BOTH computers. if this dosent work let us kno.

What he said. ;)

Also, make sure all internal firewalls are switched off (not much point with a router anyway) and ensure nothing's running loose. Also make sure your router's connected to the mains and powered on.

If that still doesn't work, try updating your NIC drivers.

^^ good points, when you said power it reminded me of something. i live away from my parents and i was visiting, i came back and i forgot my router power cable, i tried using a diffrent one and even though the LED's lit it wouldnt work correctly. even though you can connect to the net though...make sure you have to power cable that came with the router, any other wont work, unless it has the same amps, watts, volts. which is unlikely, since routers are pretty picky.

Both computers are in the same workgroup? All software firewalls on both computers are off or configured correct? Enabled File and printer sharing on both computers?

When done try //IHATEAEG/c$ or //192.168.X.X/c$ (Whatever internal IPs your network uses) using an administrator account.

Also your router might contain settings to allow/deny computers on network to browse eachother.
