64-bit XP Pro PC can't see 32-bit XP Pro PC
I've recently built a new PC and installed the Win XP Pro 64-bit operating system. I have a 32-bit XP Pro PC that I want to use for backup. Both PCs can access the Internet through a Linksys WRT55AG broadband router.
The XP Pro 32-bit can see the XP Pro 64-bit box by means of a Windows Workgroup. However, the 64-bit PC can't see the 32-bit PC. The 64-bit PC uses a Kaspersky Firewall, while the 32-bit uses a McAfee firewall, but it doesn't seem to matter whether they are turned on or not. (The MS firewall is always off on both PCs.)
I tried setting up a wireless home network to see if the two machines can see each other, but that didn't work. I've activated the "share" features on certain folders, but that doesn't help, either.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance,
PS: The 32-bit PC uses a Linksys WMP300N card while the 64-bit uses an MSI PC60G card.
