Two Dell on Win XP computers can't see each other through router

I have a Dimension E310 and a Dimension 2350 running Win XP Pro, which were hard times plugged into Vonage/Motorola router. I have a Lazerjet 4 on 2350 and I also have 2 printers more on the 310 and was able to print on any printer of each machine, I replaced the Motorola with an Airlink 101, before moving, I could also access from and to a machine with limited success (the 310a hung up when I tried to run a program that has been on the 2350)

My question is "can I USB to USB hard wire these two machines together in addition to the router or is there something more easy, because neither machine will see each other through this router?

Several years ago, I installed software and LAN cards in two machines and was able to see and map the other drive as if each machine had two hard drives and is exactly I wish that these two machines to operate.

Two of these machines are set up 5 feet from each other and only my wife and I run them.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Computers can't see each other after the installation of E3000

    I found several previous posts about my question, but none of them have led me to a solution to my problem. Here's my problem. I have a small home network that I could share files and printers on now I bought for and install a Cisco E3000 and my computers do not see each other. My current configurations is as such: I use DSL and you have an ADSL modem to 2 wires with wireless capabilities. This particular modem has a port for the telephone line and a local Ethernet port. I took the local ethernet and plugged into the internet port of the E3000. All computers can access the internet, but they cannot see. I checked that the file sharing and printers is enabled on all computers. In fact, if I remove the E3000 of configuration and place them on the 2wire wireless connection they see each other. So I'm pretty sure that the firewall on each PC software will allow file and printer sharing. Which leads me to believe that my problem is in the E3000. It blocks perhaps the Protocol of network discovery or something. Does anyone have ideas how I can fix this problem? Any help is appreciated.

    Well, I solved the problem by returning the router to the retailer and Exchange to another router. Now, all network shares working. Consider the problem solved.

  • Issue of school laboratory: setting IPs & VMnet1 so two computers can communicate with each other and to access the internet

    Hello ~

    This question has probably asked a million times in a way or another, but here's my specific: I'm a laboratory for school. I've set up two virtual servers (Windows Server 2012) in VMware Pro 12. The goal is to speak (see others). According to the instructions of the teacher, I set them up as follows:

    "Assign your appropriate servers of IP addresses based on your installation environment.  For example, if your network environment uses the class C address range 192.168.1.x, assign a server IP, subnet mask, a default gateway and the other server IP, subnet mask, a default gateway  Note: If these IP addresses will conflict with your internal network (provide your virtual machines with access to the internet), please choose a different set of address that will work for you. »

    I need to know what will work addresses. got a domain controller DC1.  Now, I can't see each other. I can't connect to Internet via IE which is one of the 'evidence' that I'm supposed to provide.

    When I go to the Publisher, I see as the guest only parameter (how is it said to set up when you first install the VMs) is I did not who, but I'm a little but I don't want to make things worse by changing things. I guess that's where the problem is, but I'm not sure what to put the IP, default subset mask and DNS for so I'm stuck.

    If it means anything, it is in fact on a borrowed laptop which is connected to the WiFi and wireless. The laptop has internet but I don't know how exactly bringing on the virtual machine when it come to be able to connect. I don't need to become an admin system; This is a compulsory course and I'm just trying to understand enough about it to pass. The problem is that other labs are constructed on it so I can't just ignore it.

    Any advice you can offer would be GREATLY appreciated. By the way, happy new year to you all.

    Sorry, yes it was a typo. It's supposed to be

    Although the virtual machine must be able to communicate if they are both configured similarly (i.e. host only in this case), you generally EF IP addresses in the subnet host only for those virtual machines to be able to access it from the host, which - as mentioned earlier - should have an address of VMnet1 IP of


  • How to create two separate networks in ESX that can communicate with each other with 2 x bear?

    Just want to know a fundamental question concerning the configuration of my ESX host of singlebox with several vswitch and two teddy bears,
    What is the definition or use of the network Label and ID of Port? Yes VLAN, I know what it's meant for the physical world.
    My goal here is to
    1. create several vSwitch with much 4 VM on the two vswitch and it communicate somehow vswitch0 and vswitch1 happen? I need to plug the switch of pNIC2 for communication can / must travel through the network cable in my ESX?
    2. how to force all traffic Vmthe in a vswitch to enter a virtual machine that runs as a router VM and then talk to the other router vswitch VM? is this possible?
    Thank you.

    I do not know if I understand perfectly, but I often have to create isolated networks.

    In this case, there is only one NETWORK card, but it works with two, one on each switch. vSwitch0 can communicate with the outside world via the vmnic0. vSwitch0 and vSwitch1 are connected by the virtual router of pfsense. The virtual machines on the portgroup private connect to the world outside and any other VM on the portgroup VM network via the pfsense router. To access computers virtual private Portgroup requires a VPN connection via the pfsense router. This is a completely isolated network. With an additional uplink on vSwitch1, you can connect to other physical devices.

  • All network devices can see each other + Windows 7 computer, but machine Windows 7 can not see them

    Hello. Under the network of my machine Windows 8 folder, I can see all the devices on the network. This includes a printer, my computer Windows 7 (what I can access), an Apple TV (from special software), a wireless hard drive, the router and a digital recorder.

    The Windows 7 machine, I can only see the router and the printer. On special software, the Apple TV does not either. When you perform the Windows 8 computer host as a server for the special software, the Windows 7 machine could not see it on the special software. This means that there is something wrong on the Windows 7 this machine is not allowing him to detect other devices.

    In a game of LAN, Windows 7 and Windows 8 computers can't see each other.

    All devices are on the internet and I am posting this from the Windows 7 machine right now.

    Windows 7 and Windows 8 machine are on the same network.

    No device is on a host group and the group home service is disabled.

    Peer networking is enabled.

    Network discovery is turned on.

    Both connections are set to private/Home.

    Originally, the Windows 7 machine has been on his own home group and could be seen by anything. After a few hours, I finally got out of the home group, how other devices could see him then. However, he cannot always see other devices.

    How can I get the Windows 7 machine to see other devices? I am at a loss. Is there a service that I have disabled right now that needs to be enabled? I don't know what to do.

    You can connect otherwise?  USB or FireWire or love at first sight?  You can connect both machines and start the one you want to transfer to target disk mode.  If your other machine is up and running with an account on it and you just want to move files, you can simply drag and drop the FRO the machine mounted TDM, or you can use the migration wizard.

    Or, if the other machine still starts and runs, you can start both computers and connect to the same wifi network and share the hard drive like machines on the network.  Access them in the finder on the new machine files and drag-and - drop, or use the wizard migration, on wifi.

    Win7 when configured on the peer-to-peer network has three types of configurations of sharing.

    Group residential network = only works between Win 7 computers. This type of configuration, it is very easy to entry level users to start sharing network.

    Working network = fundamentally similar to previous methods of sharing that allow you to control what, how and to whom the records would be shared with.

  • My WRT54g2 can not see the internet through my wrt54g...

    My company gave me a new laptop which allow no connectivity WEP. I need wep for printers and other devices on my network so I bought a new wrt54g2 to manage wireless WPA and plugged into one of the ports opened on the old router. I went to the admin and everything set up for my taste, but for some reason any that it won't catch a connection... What should I do so that he could see the internet through the old router...

    If you connect a router to another, connect the two together by network ports. Then turn off the DHCP server on the router of the second, which sounds like the WRT54G2 in this case. You may also have to reconfigure the second router local IP address out in the same IP range as the first router but outside the DHCP server on the router from the first milking. For example, if the local IP address of router then the router is on, two IP local to 192.168.1. 5 (or something of the sort).

    Or autour routers and use the WRT54G2 as the main and several router that is configured for the secondary router WEP and turn DHCP on the secondary router. Other changes such as the reconfiguration of the local IP address of the second router must always be made. Or check your existing wireless devices configured for WEP see if they will support or can be updated for decision-making support WPA or WPA2. If so remove the existing router and use the WRT54G2 in its place.

    Also, make sure that both routers have different names for SSID wireless and are on different wireless channels to avoid a conflict.
