Alright, for some reason my Hard Disk (toshiba HDD2181 30gb) in my Inspiron 1000 bit the big one and would no longer register in my computer. So I ordered a new one (same hard disk) off E-bay and installed it then re-installed windows XP.

My laptop is the secondary computer running on a home network connection through a speedstream router. The other laptop (Inspiron 1300) is the primary one with Sympatico software installed. I tried to add my computer for an internet connection in control panel---network setup wizard, followed all instructions but after everything it would not show up in My Network Places, nor would a connection be established. I tried disabling Windows Firewall and going through the motions again, to no avail.

I don't understand, before it was as simple as plugging in the ethernet cable and I was on the net, now, with my new hard disk I can't get it to work at all. What gives??? Did I miss something somewhere?
