I have two computers one running Win 8 and the other with XP and want to network both. I have used an old router for this task.
I have set up the two IP addresses and used the ping command. Ping responded very well on both computers. That means both computers are working OK and in the same network.
Also I shared C unit in both computers.
However when I go to the explorer and try to connect to each computer I can't.
I tried to find the Network wizard on Win 8 but it was impossible to find it.
Also the network icon appeared me always with the legend "No internet access".
How can I solve this network problem?
