Internet OK but cannot access files on network

  Qdiddy 19:41 28 Jan 2006


I'm running a laptop and desktop, both on XP-SP2 with a Safecom wireless router linking the laptop to the internet and the network. The desktop is wired to the router.

When using the laptop, I can always connect to the internet, but I often cannot access the files on the desktop.

Looking for suggestions on how to solve this.

if it is xp home you need to have the guest account open.

Thanks Howard.

So far so good. I'll resolve for now and repost if I have any problems.
