I have 2 computers, both running WinXP Pro. They are connected to a LinkSys BEFSR41 Router. I had to reinstall Windows on Computer 2 and now I can't get my network running again. I have ran the Network Wizard on both machines. Computer 2 shows both Computer 1 & 2 in My Network Places, but I can't access Computer 1. I can ping Computer 2 from Computer 2, but not Computer 1. I am pretty sure the problem is Computer 1. I ran the Network Wizard on Computer 1, but when I try to access Network Computers I get a message that MSHOME isn't accessable. I didn't change anything on Computer 1, I don't what happened. Help Please :?

First check to make sure you are both on the same network. In this case MSHOME. Go to Control Panel and System - Computer Name should be different, but the WORKGROUP has to be the same.

After that, check to make sure the IP addresses are the same type coming from the router. Something like 192.168.X.X
You can do this by typing IPCONFIG /ALL at the command line.

Both computers are on MSHOME and the router is giving each an IP address of 192.168.X.X For some reason I can't access MSHOME on Computer 1 When I click on My Network Places and click on View Network Computers, I get the message that MSHOME is not accessable. On Computer 2 I can view both computers, but not access Computer 1. Very strange!

I just happened to think, what about ICF. I looked at the properties of the local area connection and found that the ICF was enabled. I disabled it and my network is up. I know had it disabled before. I hate ICF and wish I could get rid of it permanently. Thanks for your help :D

That was going to be my next thought.
Good job.
