    I'm having a lot of trouble with my home network and vista (ironically, I
    don't even have to do ANYTHING and it works fine while this computer is
    running ubuntu linux :p)

    Sharing options are set wide open on the XP computer.

    I've installed LLTD on the XP computer, and it shows up in the right place
    on the Vista computer's network map, but only the vista computer and the
    router show up in the "Network" list window.

    Both firewalls are off.

    I can successfully ping XP from vista via command line.

    Both computers are in the same workgroup.

    "Restrict anonymous" is already set to 0 on both.

    There is even an account with the same name/password on both.

    That last one would be an abysmally stupid requirement anyway, but some
    sources say it's needed, and obviously I'm running out suggestions to try
    just from searching the web.

    So please help me, if you can. Thank you very much.

    It sounds like you've done most of the initial diagnostic work here. Can you
    access the Vista computer from the XP computer? What's the NetBT setting on
    both computers?

    Take a look at logs from "browstat status" and "ipconfig /all", from each
    computer, and try to isolate the problem. Read this article, and linked
    articles, and follow instructions precisely (download browstat!):

    Chuck,

    Obviously you have a great deal of knowledge in the area, but I am getting
    extremely lost while reading your blog posts. I have the EXACT same problem
    as Eoghanalbar and several other as I gather from the long list of threads
    from my search. Can you give me a set of instructions, step-by-step to verify
    and change settings?

    Thanks!

    Well, YOUR problem was explained by Eric. Read the Microsoft article, that
    should get you sorted.
