|I have two desktops connected to the internet through wired connections to a Linksys WRT54GS router. I also have one laptop that is wirelessly connected to the internet via the same router. (Also have another laptop running Vista, but not using it right now.) All computers are running XP-Pro, firewalls are all off (McAfee & XP), and all are part of the same workgroup with unique computer names. |
Desktop 1 can see that there is a workgroup, but cannot see the computers in the workgroup. Error message about permissions.
Desktop 2 can see the workgroup, access shared folders on Desktop 1 & Laptop 1. Able to modify and add to shared folders on Desktop 1 & Laptop 1. Basically do everything I want it to do.
Laptop 1 can usually find the workgroup, but cannot see the computers in the workgroup. Error message about permissions.
I opened every setting I can think of, wriote down the setting, matched them on all the computers. I double checked the workgroup name & the subnet mask. And all three computers can ping each other and themselves successfully. I have internet access on all three computers.
I am going crazy running between all three computers trying to figure out why this one desktop is working and the other are not. Any help is greatly appreciated!!!
