hi,

i have tried this for weeks and everything i can think of...

i have 2 windows xp systems that i have tried to home network, i have gone through the windows network wizard here are the steps i have done

1. set 2 unique pc names on the network with description
2. set both pc connection methods ( connected via router to access internet )
3. after reboot on both systems, when i go to share a folder, everything in that screen is blanked out

i have tried reinstalling the network adapter, repaired connection but still doesnt work

any ideas?

although you can see the options, you cannot change anything
