    If it's not too big, why not zip it and attach it to your post, unless it is copyrighted.

    What have you tried so far?

    Have you run the Network setup wizard on both PCs?

    Is the Workgroup name of both computers the same?

    answer to both the questions is YES.

    On my second PC (wireless internet) I have created a network by using Network wizard, Settings are exactly as below:

    SELECT A CONNECTION METHOD:
    - This computer connects to the internet through a residential gateway or through another computer on my network (This settings is same on both computers)

    GIVE THIS COMPUTER A DESCRIPTION AND NAME:
    (For second PC with wireless internet connection)
    Computer description: GamePC
    Computer name: GAMMINGPC

    (For first PC which is connected via router--->ADSL modem)
    Computer description: MainPC
    Computer name: MAINCOMPUTER

    NAME YOUR NETWORK:
    - Workgroup name: MSHOME (This setting is same for both computers)

    FILE AND PRINTER SHARING:
    - Turn on file and printer sharing (This setting is same for both computers)

    And finally I rebooted both computers once the network setup wizard was done.

    Now after reboot, I can see on my first computer (MainPC) that a network folder is created when i click on "My network Places"
    But when I check "My Network Places" on second PC (Wireless interent) then i don't see any folder or anything...its blank.

    I can't file share but can share internet.....

    Guys if you remember I had the same problem a while back and everything I had done was as it should be. In fact, a member of this forum actually came to my house to check it out himself, and concluded by all accounts it should be working too.

    My setup was near enough the same as sameer0807's. 2 PC's both connected to same ADSL Modem (Linksys WAG54G) & all workgroups and logon name's were the same.

    I spent the best part of a month trying to get this to work and XP just wasn't having any of it. Finally, a good friend of mine recommended RADMIN to me and it performs above and beyond what I ask of it. It's very similar to Laplink (if anyone used that app).

    In any case, I am now able to FTP, TELNET and gain full control over the other PC with no trouble whatsoever.

    If I use it to connect to another PC on, say the Internet for example I am limited to my upload bandwidth. With a LAN, I am limited to speeds set by the CAT-5 cable
    I've already transferred a couple of GB's in minutes.

    Again, if anyone is after the link for this app, pm me with your email address and I'll send you a link.

    Word of warning though.

    As it is a REMOTE ADMIN APPLICATION, some AV's WILL detect this program / and or files associated with it as being a virus/trojan which although partially correct, is still safe. This is a legitimate tool. For Symantec's Security Response on this click on this link... http://securityresponse.symantec.com...cc.radmin.html

    Remacc.Radmin is a component of the remote control software, Remote Administrator.

    Remote Administrator is a legitimate remote administration software. However, some of its components can be used for malicious purposes, as it allows a hacker to control a user's computer. Therefore, Remacc.Radmin may constitute a security threat.
