Hi there, I'm using a Netgear DG834GT modem/router/gateway thingy at home.
So far 2x computers (main computer being wired) and the one upstairs operating wirelessly.
The one upstairs (XP Home) can access the net via the router fine, and when I go into Network Neighbourhood, I can see all the shared folders and drives on my main PC downstairs (XP Home also).
Now, for some reason, when I'm upstairs I can access a couple of the displayed shared folders, but not all.
Any ideas why this would be?
Also, from my downstairs PC, I can't see the upstairs one at all. Both in the same workgroup. I just get a message saying "Mshome is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.
The network path was not found"
I've turned the windows firewall off BOTH PC's, and have temporarily disabled my 'proper' Firewalls too, until I get this sorted.
The computer upstairs IS set up to share, and this whole thing is confusing me.
I'm sure I'm not THAT thick, and I'm sure it shouldn't ever be this hard to set up a simple file sharing home network!
Tried unsharing, then re-sharing, however I still can't access the drives and folders I want :(
I can access the Shared Folder, and I've tried putting a link to the drive I want access to, in this Shared folder, but it still won't let me access it.
It's weird, both PC's on same workgroup, both accessing the net fine through the Netgear Router. 2nd PC can 'see' all shared folders on the main PC, however can't actually access them. Main PC can't even see the 2nd PC on the network.
