  Analyst02 15:09 26 Sep 04

A friend of mine has passed this problem to me so i thought i would try my tried and trusted way of getting help.
He has two XP machines.
He has just signed upto AOL Broadband and wants to setup a network.
He has purchased another network card for the client pc and has installed it. The host brigdes to the client pc ok, But... the client pc cannot bridge to the host pc at all.

All firewalls have been turned off and any other programs that were running in the background.

will get more facts later.. any help now would be much appreciated.

Has your friend connected the machines together with a crossover cable. It seems possible they may have incorrectly used a patch cable.
