|Very strange problem. I have searched around various forums for an answer, and have tried just about all the suggestions, but still nothing works.|
I have three computers in a workgroup, running through a D-Link 614 router:
1. XP Pro - Desktop - Wired
2. XP Home - Desktop - Wired
3. XP Pro - Laptop - Wireless
The problem is with #3. The first two PCs can share files and printers just fine. The laptop can be seen in My Network Places from both other computers, but when double-clicked it gives a can't connect error. Similarly, from the laptop I can see both of the other computers, but can't access them.
Some interesting things to note.
A. The #1 and #3 computers have exactly the same username and password. And the #2 PC doesn't even have a user login.
B. None of the computers have Windows Firewall on.
C. All three computers can ping everyone else.
D. It's not a problem with the wireless, because I tried plugging my laptop directly into my router, and got the same results.
E. I tried re-running the Network Setup Wizard on the laptop, and got same results.
F. I made sure the check that the laptop is in fact sharing files, as there are files in the Shared Documents, and that folder is being shared.
G. I have gone through the Properties of the laptop's wireless connection and everything looks correct.
H. I am not running any third party firewall. The only firewall on the network is the D-Link firewall.
I have been playing with this off and on for the last couple of weeks. If you have ANY suggestions at all, I'm all for it. Thanks!
