I have a network of two computers [desktop & laptop] both on XP.

The problem?

I can't get the two to share files/printer/anything, or to recognize each other [other than when I ping them, they do see each other there] through Windows. Thus, Windows XP is the problem somehow.

They are both on XP Home. Hardware is all fine, have good connection.

The only error message I get is on the laptop repair tool for the network connection that says:

"Windows could not finish repairing the problem because following action cannot be completed: Clearing NetBT"

Desktop repair tool runs fine.

[I have taken down my firewalls already, NetBios over TCP/IP already etc.]

Please Help!

Same Problem

I have this problem as well. File Sharing is turned on for both computers running XP.

I can Ping both computers, as well as get out on the WAN. I was able to remote connect to the computer with the NetBIOS error.

when running nbtstat, it tells me that NetBT is not bound to any devices.

any thoughts? could I have a corrupted DLL?

Try this:

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2.

For these commands, Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt.

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset reset.log
