Cannot connect to home network

Post by Wishwes » Mon, 15 Dec 2003 04:23:21


Hi All
I have a AximX3i. Netgear 802.11b wireless router.

No problems connecting to the Internet. Use automatic DHCP.
However, Cannot see any of my other computers on the network.
Can surf the web all I want...

Use the Rescoe File Explorer. It shows no computers in My Network on my
Axim.
On my desktop I can see all the computers in my network.

It is potentially necessary to share your home computer, shut down any
firewall.

To see computers on your network, and to activesync you must be using the
"work" network, and you need to have some type of name to IP address
resolution running on your network. So if you ping say WishweshPC it should
return the correct IP address (192.168.0.2 say) for that computer. Are you
running NetBIOS?

Same set up works OK for me. Axim3i is set to Work/Work. Desktop has
Netbios installed.
Rescoe worked first try.
