When you set up this network did all three systems have the same account?
Have a look at Grif's, Here's how I do it, and start from there.
Having a problem with file sharing that is doing my NUT in. Basically I am trying to be able to print throuhgh a printer attched to anothe rcomputer, through wifi, and also share files to that computer. The arrangement is like this.
Desktop- Vista - Printer Attached - Can Access Netbook and Itself through Network Places.
Laptop - XP - Cannot access desktop or netbook through network places. They appear as icons, but I am greated by 'you may not have permissions. Network path not found'.
Netbook - XP -Can access desktop, print through desktop's printer, but cannot access laptop (but it appears in network places).
So the laptop is bascally the problem. It *used* to work before we upgraded the desktop PC to Vista, and een then, I recall it working for a little while. I have compared the services that are running between the Netbook and the Laptop- all the same. It has a shared folder. I have enabled file shaeing. Tried turning firewall and antivirus off. No luck. I also tried pinging the desktop/laptop through the commaned prompt. That worked fine. Any suggestions?
