If you have the basic edition, it looks like it's still downloadable from MajorGeeks Download Network Magic Basic - MajorGeeks

I have a red X on my icon and it says not connected, but I'm still able to see and share files and folders with my other computers. I have version 5.5, but I'm not sure if it is Pro or Essentials

thank you Jacee :-) I will check you link
I have a red x too.....
I like this network magic because when the internet goes down I could reset the connect right from my computer
without going in the other room where modem and dlink are and I don't have to call my internet provider if all else
fails. pain in the rump to do that.... lol

did you try the link you sent me

No, I didn't try it, but I will.
I just looked at my XP and I have Network Magic Essentials 5.5 .... like I said, I'm still able to share, but it also could be because I have a Linksys compact USB adapter to run my laptop wirelessly.

Are you still able to share? Does the Network map show up when you right click to open Network Magic?

Also, see this http://home-network-software-review....ro-review.html

I clicked MG's first download mirror site (not the author's) and it looks okay on my end. Don't click the big green advertisement to download!

That download is for 5.5 and if you don't have a Linksys router will it still automatically convert to the free Network Magic Basic version after the 7-day trial?

Quote:
Limitations:
Network Magic Basic is only available for Linksys hardware customers. To get a free copy, download the 7-day Free Trial of Network Magic Pro. Try all of the features. You can choose to purchase Network Magic Pro or Essentials at any time during the trial. If you decide not to buy, Network Magic will automatically convert to the free Network Magic Basic version after the 7-day trial.
