I am currently trying to get my router (D-Link DI-604) to replace my old 4 port hub. My desktop is running Win2k Pro my laptop is running WinXP Pro. I ran my cable connection through the router and I can share the internet connection effortlessly!
I can't share files between to the two computers. I've turned on file sharing. I have also enabled pinging on the lan side of the router but not the wan side, which is working. When I had the hub I could easily share files but couldn't get ICS to work. Am I doing something wrong?
If I can ping both computers shouldn't I just be able to 'find' the computer by name? I've tried using 'find' through windows explorer and also at the command prompt to no avail.
