Networking Error: Xp and 7 won't network

924 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  johnwill
So today, I was able to network my xp to a windows 7 fine to transfer the same files by connecting them together via ethernet cable. Now, for some reason, when I try to network the computers together, the 7 says its connected fine, but the xp says it has limited to no connectivity. How can one computer be connected while the other has limited to no connectivity?! :upset:

I will not kid you when I say I've been searching Google for 5 hours, only to find all the results are something I don't want. I know the ethernet cable is working fine, and I've tried disabling firewalls, going through various settings, etc., but no results. Hopefully I can get a reply before I figure this out after another 3 days of searching for the solution.

Are you connecting them directly with a cable, or connecting them to a broadband router? Can you describe the whole configuration?

Let's also see this from each of the computers?

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands, one at a time, followed by the Enter key:

Note that there is a space before the -n or the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the - or / in the following commands.



Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.
