    I have wired both computers to router and both are internet working.
    I would like to file share between them and have run the networking wizard
    and have set up both computers to share and both drives have the share hand indicating they are ready.
    but I cannot get to see them when I look in my network places.
    grateful for any help.

    thank you

    are they using the same workgroup name?

    have you setup firewall rules for each PC to haev access to the other PC? the firewalls maybe stopping access.

    if you have any firewalls runing on the two PCs turn them off just to see if that works.

    yea check the windows firewall and NIS or any 3rd party firewall.

    also check to see if you can ping the other computer (IP address and computer name)

    Thank you all for the advice have got connection one way but when I try the reverse I get message that I have not got permission.
    When I check the firewall I get it is using group Policy to control input.
    Can find no way to over come this.
