Help with wireless networking

  xp_version1 17:41 17 May 2008


I really hope someone can help me out with this because I'm one step away from tearing my hair out. I've a standard PC running XP SP3 connected to the Internet via my Belkin N wireless router and a laptop running XP SP3 connected to the internet through the same router. How the Hell do I get it so I can access two drives (both drives already set to allow sharing along with the Firewalls on both computers) from the laptop?

Both PC & Laptop are in the same workgroup.

I would suggest that you set as "shared" any folders that you want to have available over the network, rather than sharing "drives". Not all of the files in a drive belong to you (i.e. to the Username with which you are logged in), so trying to share the root of the drive isn't always successful.
