New Laptop can't see network

  mgmcc 18:00 18 Mar 2006

The claptrap that Windows regurgitates about nobody having permission to do anything is a generic message it displays whenever there is a problem accessing a remote computer. It is misleading and frequently wrong.

In the new laptop, try entering the path to it directly into the address bar in "My Network Places", either by IP address or by Name, for example:

\\192.168.0.25

\\computer-name

If that still doesn't help, use the option in the Tools menu to "Map Network Drive", enter the path as above but also use the option to "Connect using a different user name" and make sure you enter the Username & Password that the remote PC is logged i with.
