    I've spent the last 5 hours trying to network my Vista build 5384 to XP SP2
    through a D-Link DGL-4300. Neither computer can see the other but they can
    both ping each other. I have firewalls turned off on both systems as well as
    all that crazy Vista security for troubleshooting. My two XP systems can see
    and share with out a problem. What am I missing here?

    If you haven't already:

    go to Start Menu
    right click My Computer
    select Properties (sytstem properties opens up)
    select the Computer Name tab
    click on the Change button (To rename this computer or joint a domain . . .)
    select Workgroup
    set the Workgroup name to WORKGROUP

    Workgroup name must be set to WORKGROUP for you to be able to see either
    machine from the other (Vista beta 2 and WinXP

    Well it already was workgroup, but I've tried changing the workgroup on all
    of the computers to different things including of course "workgroup"

    I had also a problem with my D-link DGL - 4300? I have upgraded its firmware
    to 1.6. And now I haven't got any more problems with it. Maybe you can try
    it to.
