Help... Please!!

I am running two computers, one a desktop ane the other a laptop, both running windows xp (home edition). The computers are connected through a 'Netgear' hub. I have run 'Network Setup Wizard' on the desktop pc (host), this computer also connects to the Broadband connection, creadted a floppy set up disk, and run this on the laptop pc (client).

Both machines can access the internet. The host computer can share files and printers on the client pc, but the client pc cannot access the files/printers on the host pc. Firewalls have been disabled, and I have uninstalled Zone Alarm Pro.

Both pc's can ping each others IP address and name and have the same workgroup name.

On the host computer I have two connections under 'LAN and High-Speed Internet'. 1) is for the ethernet adaptor (Network connection) and 2)is for the ZyXEL USB ADSL Modem.

I have tried setting up identical user login names/passwords on both machines, but this makes no difference.

The internet protocol on the host is set up with a IP address of and a submask of, while the client computer is setup to obtain an IP address automatically.

Any advice to why the client pc can not access the files on the host computer would be most appreciateded - here's hoping, Matt
