I AM the administrator!!!!!!

I recently followed a guide to networking two pc's. Laptop downstairs with desktop upstairs. I thought I cracked it untill I clicked on an icon of the 'other' machine only to be told 'not possible, I am not the administrator. I checked the accounts, but I am. On both machines! Why can't I access this folder? Using netgear wireless router with win xp (sp1)

Have you set at least one folder as "shared" in each PC?

Have you configured any firewall software to allow access to the networked PCs?

If you are using XP *Pro*, are you logging in to the "client" PC with a Username/Password that matches exactly that of an Account in the "host" PC? For more details on this click here
