I’m trying to network my laptop and desktop through a wireless router. Both machines have XP sp2 Both machines share the same username and password Both machines are in the same workgroup. The desktop is the primary machine. I’m able to see both computers, on both machines when I click “view workgroup computer.” I can access the files on the laptop from the desktop. I can print from the laptop. However, I when I click on the desktop computer’s icon on the laptop, I get this message: \\ “Computer name” is not accessible. You may not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.” I’ve gone through numerous check lists, including the exhaustive one below. http://www.michna.com/kb/WxNetwork.htm#XP_Networking_Wizard_problems Most of the tutorials and forum threads are pre-sp2. Most of the “solutions” people come up with for similar issues seem completely arbitrary. I’ve used wizard/nowizard, enabled NetBios/ over TCP/IP, automatic IP, static IP, file sharing on all the folders and drives, fire wall, no fire wall, virus protection off/on, turning the lights off and on, herbal remedies, prayer, threats. I can’t believe this is that difficult. I’m about to pay someone 175.00 to make a house call. This is my first forum and post so be gentle!
