help my network dissappeared!


Recommended Posts

I already set up a LAN network a long time ago. I had norton internet security but the subscription ran out so i was kind of lazy and didnt want to resubscribe it to it yet. I just resubscribed and then when i restarted my computer, my network was gone. I could not see my brother's computer on my computer. I connected both computers with a gateway from Verizon.

How can I fix this? i tried making a new network but it doesn't work. The network does not show up

This is another one of those problems.. like rich said check firewall.. if you are prompted for a password.. try the default one.. I think you can set up an account  to log other computer on to that computer.  Something about Windows XP pro vs. Home vs Ever other edition of windows.    what versions are you using?

I'm using XP media center on mine and Xp home on the other. My brother's doesn't have a firewall besides windows firewall; should i install one so that he can make the adjustment to allow the ip address?

I would install a firewall!  windows firewall isnt a real firewall.. if i remember correctly it only scan incoming traffic.. so anything that is already on your computer and has internet access get free reign.. like spyware..

if you don't have a hardware firewall, then a good software firewall is a must.
