do you get any error messages? open cmd from another computer and ping the pc in question (assuming this pc gets an ip). if "ping" works then try net view \\computer name or ip. you should be able to see the shares or get an access denied usually 5.
Try that and let me know what you got so that i might understand the root of the problem.
For your main pc LAN setting >R click on my network >properties>R-clickon LAN modem>properties />select internet protocol>properties>useset for manually IP> IP address=10.0.0.1 subnet =184.108.40.206 for ping =run>10.0.0.2 -t Another one will be same process> IP address=10.0.0.2 subnet =220.127.116.11 default gate way=10.0.0.1 now ping >run type ping10.0.0.1 -t R click any folder now ,properties>sharing>just share>tic on share thefolder on my network>can change any name for folder, Hope it will help you.
If youre connected online with that game, i think the problem will most likely be on your internet connection,you can check if your internet connection is stable by pinging any website. You can try open up Windows Command Prompt if your using windows and type ping www.yahoo.com.
If youre referring to offline games and connected via network lan, you should check your LAN card if its ok by pinging your Lan address which is 127.0.0.1.
Or if your not connected on Network Lan, then you should try reinstalling the game.
Make sure you are receiving a proper IP address from the DHCP server....If you run a cmd prompt (windows icon, type cmd and hit eneter, then ipconfig) you should see a 192.168.0.x address. If not, go to the control panel, network connections, manage network connections, and be sure that TCP/IP (V4) is set as auto-configure....
If you are sharing the connection through an XP computer, you will need to run the Internet and connection sharing Wizard on the XP computer, and transfger the settings on a disk to the Windows 7 PC. A simpler solution (assuming you are on a cable/dsl connection would to be to go to your local big box store and buy an Internet/Firewall router. It would also increase your security.
you need a cat 5 or better to work fine, and if you have turned mac filter on, please check/add if needed your laptop to the network, best is to use dlink given cd, with has auto-detect devices function inside, then adjust security setting manually
All right let's call your Vista computer A and your Xp computer B. First you have to bring the two computers into LAN. If you already did this, please skip the next eight steps.
Step 1: In Vista, before doing this you should enable Sharing and Discovery. You can do that by going to Control Panel -> Network and Sharing Center. Under the section ‘Sharing and Discovery, enable Network discovery, File Sharing, Public folder sharing and others if you want to. (See picture below)
Step 2: If your LAN card that is connecting to another computer is installed, it will be shown under Control Panel -> Network Connections.
Step 3: Right click that local area connection and click properties.
Step 4: Under the tab ‘Networking’, click the properties Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4).
Step 5: Click the radio button to ‘Use the following IP’ and give an IP address (For example, IP address: 192.168.0.1 and Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0)
Step 6: Don’t give any other information, Click Ok and close everything.
Step 7: In computer B, which is the XP, make sure you enable the LAN card which is used to connect to computer ‘A’. Here you need not give any IP information as Computer ‘A’ will assign an IP address dynamically. If it’s not working make sure there are no IP assigned and change the properties to ‘Obtain an IP address automatically’.
Step 8: Test the connection by pinging. (You can do this by typing ping 192.168.0.1 or whichever is Compter ‘A’s IP in the comand prompt)
NOW your computers are connected. Now to share the internet:
Right click LAN card which is connected to Internet under Control Panel -> Network Connections and click ‘Sharing’ tab and enable both the options to share Internet. (Note: Unless there is another enabled LAN setting you will not be able to see the shared tab under properties)
Click Ok and close. This option is given by the Windows OS known as ICS (Internet Connection Sharing).
Now you can use Internet from both Computer A and Computer B from a single connection.
So this is the setup you need on the Host computer as you requested, if you turn out to need help witht he XP one too, let me know:)
Try to map the IP of the computer you are trying to access
Click run>type \\IP of the computer the click ok. If this will not work, try to ping the IP of the computer see if the computer is accessible tru ping.
