Vista/XP Networking Fustrations have become Vista/XP Networking HE

I gotta say, no computer problem has ever caused me this much grief or caused
me to cuss so much in my life, so hopefully someone can help me...

I have been trying for the good part of a month to set up a network between
ONE Vista machine and ONE XP Machine, and have been told to go ***** myself
by my Vista machine at every turn, everyday...

I've realized I posted about this awhile ago but here is my problem again in
a nutshell:

*The XP Machine cannot see the Vista Machine, ever.
*The Vista Machine will occassionally show the XP machine in the Network
Folder, about 25% of the time.
*I am sometimes able to access the XP machine using \\ip address. When this
is successful, sometimes I am able to actually read/write to folders, other
times access is denied.
*If the XP machine shows up in the Network Folder, it is almost guaranteed
that I won't be able to access it via \\ip address. If the XP machine does
not show up in the Network forlder, then I have a better chance of using \\ip
address.
*The XP machine always comes out in the Network Map.

I have a Linksys WRT350N wireless router. The Vista box is connected with a
cable, and the XP brick is connected wirelessly.

I have determined the following, beyond a doubt:
*The problem lies with the Vista box and not the XP brick because I have a
Archos portable media player (its OS is Linux based I believe), and both the
player and the brick can see each other and interact just fine.
*It maybe a problem with NetBios Over TCP/IP, as ipconfig.txt says it is
disabled on all my adapters (even thoe it is clearly enabled in WINS tab).
*It maybe a problem with the NT Browser Service, as browstat.txt says
browsing is not active on the domain, I cannot find it in the service list.

(I've tried everything in PChuck articles and all Mick Murphy suggestions,
the standard stuff I guess)
(the output of the ipconfig.txt and browstat.txt is included in a reply)

Thanks in advance for any help, sorry if I sound rude.

Dear Sid,

Have you tried to ping from Vista to XP and vice versa pc's? The -t
option for ping make run for ever. It is to see lost packets and lost
connection.

Re: Vista/XP Networking Fustrations have become Vista/XP Networkin

PEF,

Sorry..

For the Vista box, I have Bitdefender Internet Security 2008 and for the XP
brick I have Zone Alarm.

I have disabled the Windows firewall on both machines and also these
firewalls, but the behavior is the same.

Thanks for replying.

Pjerriot,

I did read that article, but I did not see anything that would help, thanks.

Both machines are able to ping each other.

Thanks for replying.

Re: Vista/XP Networking Fustrations have become Vista/XP Networking HE


Hi Sid
I had exactly the same problem. I eventually gave up and installed
'Network Magic', works flawlessly.
This program is not freeware but you can trial it by downloading from
their website.

Good luck

You have read the link, but read what I wrote!

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l.../bb727037.aspx

Have a read of the above link re Vista File and Printer Sharing.

Permissions/Share info is there as well.

If using Norton, McAfee, Trend Micro I.S., make sure file and printer
sharing is enabled in THEIR firewall.

1st thing to do is make sure that the Workgroup Name of ALL the computers is
the SAME.

In Vista Network and Sharing:

Network Discovery: ON (So it can see the other computers)

Network set to Private (Public is for hotspots, airports, etc)

File Sharing: ON

Public Folder Sharing: ON (Vista’s Public Folder is the same as XP’s Shared
Docs)

Password Protected: OFF (unless you want to set up identical usernames and
passwords on ALL computers in your Network) If you have it ON, you will be
asked for a username and password when you try to access a Vista computer
from an XP computer.

Also, run the XP’s Home Network File and Printer Sharing Wizard to include
Vista in your “New” Network, even if you had an XP Network set up prior to
adding a Vista computer to it.
