Afternoon all. I have a myworld book attached to a router. I have managed to connect to it wirelessly using my laptop. On another computer it will not let me. When I try to map to this drive I get an error message stating that it cannot connect to it. Windows firewall is turned off & I disabled the firewall in windows livecare. Does anyone have any ideas?

thanks

I'm sure it something in Vista. Both my laptop & desktop have Vista but my Laptop can access it. I did figure something out in that the "routing" in services was disabled. I started it and when trying to map I got a different error. It now tells me that network name cannot be found rather than cannot find network path
