She has the Link-Layer Topology Discovery thing installed.

I set her Zonelalarm sliders to the middle when I needs the access and have allowed an ip range 192.168.0.0 to 192.168.0.6

workgroup had to be specified with one of them vista or xp

I hate networks

_______________
After trying to connect today with nothing changed, took about half an hour of changing settings and whatever then

it connected "by itself"

I ****ing hate networks
lol... All my workgroups are the same. I cannot see what's wrong, really. I have also tried installing the PCI linksys ethernet card in my system, and hooked it up. And I managed to enable the sharing thing, but it requires other connection or something. Meaning, it still don't work.

Also are you sure both have the same workgroup name? Vista uses WORKGROUP while XP uses MSHOME
What will it benefit if I use public or private? I tried switching around with those and it doesn't help.
