Why can't I see any shared drives over my LAN, when I can have internet sharing? All IP addresses are static apart from the ISP connection and sharing is enabled. The OS is winXP pro on all systems and I have tried everything I know!

Same workgroup name on all PC's? Have you tried calling each PC by computer name? "//COMPUTERNAME" in a command prompt should bring up a list of all drives on that computer. You can also try each PC's. IP address directly. Make sure all network settings are the same on each PC. (TCP/IP installed, Client for Microsoft Networks, Primarly logon is the same, etc)

Same things I would check as well Johnny. Sharing internet and file sharing are not related. One can happen when the other will not.

Have you gone through and set sharing permissions on each drive to be shared or just enabled file sharing? There is a check box to share files over a network under the sharing tab when you go into the properties of each drive .

Dont do any of the stupid wizards. If it asks you to use a wizard to configure it, click no and do it manually.

Can you at least see all of the computers on the network from each station? Also do you see the hand under each drive icon indicating a shared drive on each computer when you view the drive under My Computer?

No computers seen, all sharing protocols set, all modem share, removed and reinstalled TCP/IP, still no joy!
