    I have my comp which is running Windows XP Service Pack 2

    I have the comp I just built for another room running Windows 2000 Pro Service Pack 4

    Simple 4 port router

    Internet is working and all that fine crap

    I cannot for the life of me get the two comps to network

    The 2000 box shows my computer but can't access it

    The XP box doesn't show anything at all

    WTF!? I've spent two days on this, any help?

    need more details ... what specificly are you trying to do?

    Make sure you have them on the same workgroup, also try turning off simple file sharing on the XP machine and manually set the permissions (hit xp has a built in group called everybody .. give that full access to the share and all should be well)
