Wireless Network: Thought it was fixed

I've got a workgroup called Mshome. I've got two computers connected wirelessly.

They connect to the internet fine but I cannot see the files of each other one. I've shared all the files, turned off Zone Alarm for the time being but when I click view workgroup computers in My Network Places only one computer comes up (ie. the one I'm on currently) and it can't find the others.

It found them earlier and I did connect to them but it seems to have dropped off again. Whenever I click the shared folders it comes up,

'\\Smallcomputer\mydocuments is not accessible.........the network path was not found'

Any ideas?

Do you have file and printer sharing activated in your network properties?

Go to Control Panel - Network Connections, right-click on your wireless connection and click Properties. Tick the File and Printer Sharing box.

Mmm, bizarre. It seems to be working fine again now.
