i have a problem with my home network being able to see each of the pc's on either my vista or my xp. my xp is in my home office and my vista is set up in my livingroom with a wireless g card (belkin wireless router) when i first set it up i could use the printer (lexmark) in the office on the xp but could never get it to see vista or my wirless connection on the xp. xp shows only local connection. now i can not see one from the other. i have checked all settings and every thing is set to share and the same workgroup, the pc names are correct, and so on. i ran a diagnose check on vista and it once said a firewall inbetween the pc's might be blocking the vista from seeing the xp (host)? its been a year and i'm still trying to get this to work. i dont think it will ever work but i decided one last try here so any help would be great. thanxs

Disable firewalls on both computers, re-enable once you have the network running reliably.
