lost sharing folders, cant see comp on net group!

  athenrye 23:00 19 Dec 06

hi ive got 2 home xp computers
i have a modem that goes to a router and the two xp comps from the router

i had the two comps folder and printer sharing for a year now, i did have to move the computers around the hose but all connections stayed the same

but i have lost printer and folder sharing, no issues with the broadband connection thats fine

i have the shared folders on my xp but my sons seem to be the problem, i can see the comp on the network group but cant acces it
on his machine i cant see any network computers

any easy ideas

right click "My Computer" and then click on "map network drives"

not sure what to do with it from there im afraid but it might show what is connected.

it might be that you have to re-run the network setup wizard to reconnect the 2 computers.

im not much good at networks so i will leave it there for others who know better.

good luck
