Trouble while network routing two PC using winXP SP2 and SP3 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear all I have two PC using OS winXP but Service Pack is 2 and 3 respectively 

    I assigned IP 172.16.1.10 and 172.16.1.20 each but when i gonna ping the error appears " request timed out "

    and just for checking purpose when i assigned same IP to both PC then message appears that IP is already assigned to other PC, means each PC is knowing other IP but why it is not possible to ping while using different IP. But normally we do it but with SP2 and SP3 its not working. Any help regarding this will be really appreciated.

    First step is to install Service Pack 3 and the at-least-three-years worth of missing patches.

    Then try again, and if it still doesn't work, it's something that can be investigated.
