Why is networking with XP such a pain in the butt?
Since I've installed XP on my computer, I have yet to create a successful network with it. I can never see other people on the network, and if I do, I can never EVER get around to logging in to share files. XP just refuses to log anyone into my computer even with the correct username and password.
I never had these problem with windows 2000, and this is so frustrating!
Besides installing all the protocols, being in the same workgroup, and having the right log-in's, what else is there to set up for a windows network? I know there are extra security things with XP, but are they supposed to completely stop people from logging in to share files? Ive tried configuring IPs, but that doesnt work either.
Games run fine over the network, its just that whenever I hook up to one I either see nobody, or I can't log in to transfer stuff. Whats going on?
