i am having a problem with my wireless networking. the strange thing is that
internet explorer is working fine, but i need to transfer files and such from
my desktop to my laptop but it does not show the network under the network
connections window. i have tried disabling my firewall and setting up a new
network and nothing is working so far. any ideas? I hope this gives you an
idea. thanks.

I am having the same problem. Does it matter that my desktop is running XP
Home Edition and my laptop is running XP Media Center?

I would say no, but I am not the guy to ask. Good luck though.

Adam,
Try this www.networkmagic.com.
I installed it and it looked like it would work except that it did not
recognize the version of my router (netgear WGR614 v6 if you have V4 or less
you are ok). The application supports lots of different router models and
makes. hopefully this will work for you.

I am still searching
Andy

Adam,
If you have not found a solution try this. It worked for me:

Hi Cindy,

" it seems the problem about the file sharing lies in the norton security.
if anyone has it on their pc's they need to open up to Personal filewall /
configure, then click networking tab and check they have settings for :
HOME active, then add the pc's you want to share ie: your ip addresses to
the trusted zone,. Also in the locations tab ensure 'Turn network Detector'
is checked. also keep firewalls set to on.
hope this helps
