Problem networking - winXP, cable internet - Windows Networking

    Default Problem networking - winXP, cable internet

    I have two computers, both winXP, both connected to the
    internet via Cox cable internet, each computer getting
    assigned its own Ip address. The internet works fine for
    both computers, but I cannot get them to network (share).
    I can ping fine between the two systems using using the
    IP addresses given (ip xx.xx.xx.xx), but it doesn't work
    using computer names (ip computername). Yes, NetBIOS is
    on both systems, and each system has DNS servers that also
    ping. Also, I cannot map a drive using either IP
    addresses or computernames. There are no (known)
    firewalls installed on either system. I have done all the
    basing troubleshooting, and I am at a loss. If anyone has
    any ideas I'd greatly appreciate it.

    I forgot to mention one thing -- my computers obtain
    their IP addresses automatically (i'm assuming from my
    network provider). However, I noticed that one computer's
    subnet mask is 255.255.254.0 while the other is
    255.255.253.0. I don't know if this is a problem or not,
    but I thought I'd mention it.

    You said you tried all the troubleshooting, does it include the Windows XP's
    built-in firewall? It gives this kind of troubles.
