I have a home network set up on XP Pro file sharing print sharing etc. What
I need to know is how can I get my PPC to browse my network correctly?

I have a wireless ADSL Combi switch (both UTP and wireless on same switch)
and my PPC has a wireless CF Card. I have achived a internet connection and
can browse the net from the PPC. what I cant do however is browse my home
network (ip 192.168.1.xxx ) I am a bit new to PPC's and so am unfamilar with
the settings/configuration of the device.

Any ideas?


TIA

My understanding is that browsing that way round (from PPC to PC) is not
part of Win Mobile though you can do it the other way around. But I have
recently been told (and verified) that installing HP Mobile Printing does
add the capability to view your shares in File Explorer!

I use Resco Explorer for this. It lets you see shares and "map drives".
