XP-PRO Networking.

  spaciousmonti 21:44 23 May 2003

Hi all,

Just wondered if you all might be able to help me a little here.
Know, I know a bit about networking I've got desktop with broadband and laptop 2nd pc via wireless and a networked printer.
But, when trying to view my shared drives on the main pc via my laptop (both xp-pro) the window freezes, then stops reponding and then closes the desktop so i just get my wallpaper!
This requires me to hit ctrl-alt-del and start the taskmanager to run explorer.exe all over again.
Occassionaly it works and connects to the shared folder, other times it takes an age most times it doesnt.
However, everything works fine via win2kpro-xppro!
Any suggestions?

Much Love
