    Hi I'm new here and this place sounds like a lot of really smart people who really know what their doing are. So I have a simple problem. I have two completely seperate networks mine and my father in-laws. Yesterday we both got our internet upgraded (from Dial-up) to Wildblue satellite internet. Now Wildblue only hooks one computer to the sat system. I love the new high speed. Anyway now we needed to hook up the other computers in our houses I have four, he has two we both got ourselves (my wife accually bought his) two BEFSR41 cable/DSL routers. hooked them up. Now everyone has access to the internet a good thing. Wifes happy and I wasn't in too much trouble in buying this thing. Anyway but my local network no longer works. I have four windows xp home edition computers that have high speed internet access but they can't access each other. Now I only work on the my wives and mine (i try and stay out of the girls rooms can't stand the mess) but they have the same message "\\computer name is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administartor of this server to find out if you have access permissions. The network path was not found." I can ping by number but not by name. Can't see printers, shared file or folders. Please keep any replies simple I don't know that much but am willing to learn. Thanks Rodger

    firstly what IP addresses do they all have including Subnet.

    to find this, goto run, type the word cmd

    then the command prompt loads up. then type at the command prompt type

    ipconfig

    and tell us ALL the Ip addresses for each computer.

    1. make sure "File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks" is enabled.
    2. enabled "NetBIOS over TCP/IP" located in the Internet Protocol Properties/Advanced/WINS.
    3. All else failed, try using IP instead of computer name to map a share
    \\192.169.1.100\share name

    any software firewalls added? possibly in this ISP's own software that they probably made you install.

    I disable the windows firewall, I uninstalled norton antivirus 2005 on both computers. The ISP software I never installed, their setup was easy and I didn't want my home page changed. so no. I can connect to the other computers by direct IP but I'd like the browsing to work. Thanks

    Did you follow my instructions above?

    yes I did. I was able to connect IP Direct. The other stuff I'd already made sure was done. I also uninstalled file and printer sharing and reinstalled it. When I was doing that I did see something in the protocols that says Microsoft TCP/IP version 6. I wonder if I should install those and remove the other TCP/IP?

    Try just having the Client for microsoft networks, file and printer sharing for microsoft networks and TCP/IP in the connection properties, maybe leave qos on if needed.

    get rid of the IPv6 stuff
