Hy!
Look at the Ip adresses of both computers. They should be the same. If not,
change you computers IP address to be on the same network. You can use the
command "ipconfig /all" from the Command Prompt. Then try to ping the host
between them. The you should see if there is network connectivity or not.
Check computers to be in the same subnet and workgroup. Try putting your
parrents computer IP address as your Defaul Gateway. If you have XP with SP2
you should also check in the Security Center for certain options. Let me know
if it work ok?
Bye
