      Networking with Sky box.

      How do I set up networking with 2 computers, to one sky router. All plugged in have got internet on both, but they are no talking to each other, one on Vista one on XP. Tried looking at work groups but won't unable to set up on vista. Where am I going wrong? Do connections private or public? Firewalls on or off? It's a minefield out there. Don't want to self distruct just yet.

      If you look above this window, top left is a search box. See it? enter How to network Vista with XP and lo and behold it spits out lots of very useful posts on that very topic.

      So here is your starter

      home network Vista vs XP

      Always try a search first

      Thanks for that, tried that but still no joy. On network place it shows router, and the computer that I'm on at time but no shared details.

      Re: Networking with Sky box.

      I had this exact same problem. Try this:

      For computers running Windows XP to appear on the Network Map diagram, you must download and install the LLTD Responder component. With the LLTD Responder, a computer running Windows XP can respond to other Windows Vista computers on the network that are attempting to create a network map.



      To install the LLTD Responder to a computer running Windows XP

      1. Download the update for Windows XP from Download details: Link Layer Topology Discovery (LLTD) Responder (KB922120)

      2. Run the update on the computer running Windows XP that you want to appear on the Network Map.

      3. On the Software Update Installation Wizard, click Next.

      4. On the License Agreement page, read the license agreement, and if you agree to the terms, click I Agree, and then click Next.

      5. On the final page of the wizard, click Finish.

      6. If you are prompted to do so, restart your computer.

      After your computer running Windows XP restarts, generate a new Network Map with the computer running Windows XP included.
