|Hello, searched around a couple hours so i hopefully this isn't the most common issue..|
summary i've setup a WEP secured ad-hoc network between two laptops. they both are showing connected status to the wireless network. i have folders on both machines which are set to 'shared' status, however neither machine is showing the other machine in 'my network places'
i have unique ips for each, and can ping the other machine from here.
both have a subnet mask of
machine a connects using
Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN
machine b connects using
linksys instant wireless network pc card v3
machine b IS
dell inspiron 1100 w 2.4gig processor 256mb ram running on XP home v2002
both machines have sp2
i did get machine b to show up in the workgroup on machine a but only for a minute and when i clicked on it it gave an error related to permissions.
thanks in advance for your time
