I have 3 computers. one laptap(XP home) and 2 desktops(xp pro and 2K). the one with 2k on it is my fileserver. It is connected through the other desktop which is connected to the router wirelessly. is there a way to make it possible to get the laptop to see the fileserver. The Desktop that is connected wirelessly to the router sees both with no problems.

If you have a router with wireless why would one computer be connected through another? Why dont you just connect each one to the router? Or have I missunderstood something?

There are always problems wheniver I have tried to connect a W2K machine to XP. My XP machines easily connect (through a router) to Win98 and Even Win95 machines, and the XP machines all work well together, but as soon as I add a Win2K to the mix then Everything has trouble seeing the 2K. Wish I had an easy solution for you...but I don't...I just gave up on the Idea in the past.

If I had more memory for it it would be running xp. although it is only a fileserver so speed really isn't an issue is it? It isn't used for anything else 'cept folding. I might just reload it after it finish the 600 pt gromac it is crunching.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
