Mshome not available on some computers

  Viv-208691 00:19 06 Apr 2005

Hi there, I have a Belkin 54G wireless modem router and 2 wirelessly linked computers (2 laptops). I think I have successfully created a wireless network (in that both can access the shared broadband connection). However, I am confused because the Dell laptop can 'see' the Sony laptop in 'Mshome' network but not vica versa. The Sony laptop is told that 'Mshome is not accessible. You may 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'.

Both computers use XP and the wireless settings are identical.

Has anyone any ideas why I am having this problem?

Thanks, F.T.

Firewall settings? - disable to check.

Are you set as the administrator of the laptop?

I have checked firewall settings - i have made it so firewall accepts ip range. I am the administrator on both laptops, yes. Any other ideas?
