Be advised that,
it makes not different to connect one PC/Laptop to another one via LAN because when you connect your system in lan networking you system will be automatically detected if LAN has been set up through a server.
And if not you need to do manually by assigning ID address on bot PC/Laptop.
For that,
first assign an IP address in either Laptop or desktop (IP address must be same category)
ex.
192.168.1.231 (first one)
and second one should be
192.168.1.here you can up (instead of 231) any number excep 0 but make sure not confliction between other system. means not duplication IP address on same LAN.
once you ae done with IP assigning
Go to
Star>Run>command and hit enter
once you see command prompt then
type there:
ipconfig and hit enter (it shows your ip address) if you wanna have more info then type ipconfig/all
once you are done with this then
you need to ping to your next PC.
for that
type in
ping 192.168.1.231 (means you need to type another PC's IP address here)
and hit etner
if you see like on image
then you are good to go.

Windows Vista home + Windows XP Professional Networking issue


Make sure domain settings to your server are correct on the notebook computer. These settings are located in the control panel of the system setting.

Whats the operating system of your server?

Make sure the firewall in windows security is turned off too. Sometimes that thing sneaks up on you.

I haven't used the home edition of Vista but another reason why it might not be working is because it isn't the business version. Microsoft might have added extra security to prevent the home version from connecting to a server. I know we use the business version of Vista at work and it is working that way on the intranet server without a problem.

I would check with Microsofts website on that.
