I have two PCs one Vista the other XP. both are connected to a BT Home hub, one via ethernet the other wireless. How can I create a home network and share a printer and files?
Make sure both PCs are on the same workgroup (eg. MSHOME or WORKGROUP)
Then you need to enable file sharing on BOTH PCs (right click on files/folders you wish to share & click "Share"). To share a printer, go into control panel (on the PC with the printer you want to share) and right click & share printer, either that or look for the tab on the LHS of the window that says Share a Printer (or similar)
Thanks. Did as you suggested and also disabled the firewalls in both PCs (McAfee), but still no connection.
When i look at the network map on the XP Pc I see an 'other device' but not aon the Vista one.
Any other ideas.
