questions:

1. My desktop computer is connected to the router through Lan. when i start the computer. my comp identifies the network for 2 mins.. it is normal? or i need to change settings or the router?

2. i cannot connect to my other PC that is also connected in Lan.. see ScreenSHoot below

Do you have different names for the two different computers ?

give details about your router
.. and update to the latest firmware first!

The wired connection should work straight away provided the pc's all have the same workgroup name.

1) Is it really 2mins or just a figure, normally the acquiring of network address should be around 10 sec.

2) So your other machine is also attaching to the router, in this case you only have 3 ports left, right? Try the other ports.

Have you tried with another cable? I think it could be the router ports.

As for router setting, a guide is in my sig.

I have the same problem as you I can see the computers on the network and when I click on any of them I get the exact same error as you. I just post the same question on here as you hope someone has an answer.

Hang on, look at the error in the image. Path error? How and what did you put into where to try and connect?

I have the same error and I get it when I click the icon that comes up in network? Is there a way to purge them and have them rediscover. Not even sure that would help.
