I am trying to set up my first network.

I recently bought a router (Buffalo 54 Wireless 4 port) and I have got both my computers sharing internet access simultaneously through it OK via ethernet to make it simple (cable modem).

Complications come from the fact that one computer uses XP pro and the other uses WinME. I will be using that one (ME) to to some number crunching later when I have it set up with wireless so I can put it somewhere out of the way and operate it through remote desktop.

I have adjusted user logon & password to be identical for each computer and I have given them the same workgroup (same case) and then ran the network wizard in XP and also used the disc it made on the ME machine but they cant see each other in remote desktop. I have made a shared folder named the same on both computers but it doesnt show contents on one computer from the other.

After I ran the network wizard on the ME machine Tweak UI will no longer do automatic logon, asks me for password everytime. Dont know if that is relevant.

any ideas where I am coming adrift ?
