Not sure if i quite understand your problem, but I have a similar set up. Two computers running XP home, connected together via a hub using Cat 5 Cable. When i first tryed to get them to "talk" to each other I was pulling my hair out. I ran the wizard time and time again to try and gte them to talk. Set up shared files which only showed on that computer. My network connections box only showed the computer it was on... aaaaagh. Any how, after some time things seamed to sort themselfs out. The only I've found since then when I've had to set up the network again is that I go through the motions even though the other computer dos'nt show, Restart both computers and it works. I know this might not be a lot of help, but your not the only one. Nothing seams straight forward on these things. Why the Wizard isn't starting I'm not sure.
