an identical user account and password set up on all computers?
This is driving me crazy. I have set this up before and had it working, what am I doing wrong?
2 desktop computers upstairs (win98se) and (winxp home) connected via cable to wireless router, they can see and share files and printer with each other, no problem.
1 laptop (winme) downstairs with wireless network card connected to router, logs onto internet no problem.
Al I want to do is print from my winme laptop to the canon printer on the winxp computer. Problem is when I click on entire network I get a msg. >>unable to browse the network, windows is unable to gain acces to the network<<.
I'll try to answer some of your obvious questions now.
---yes tcp/ip and netbeui are installed on both computers
---yes printer on xp machine is setup for sharing
---yes I can ping the xp machine from the winme machine
---yes I have tried to map network drive, no luck
--- yes I have read most of the pertinent MS KB articles
--- zone alarm has been turned off
Any help greatly appreciated.
P.S. I can't remember what goes in the Host Name under DNS configuration, is it the computer name or the workgroup name?
