Computers Can Share Internet but cannot see each other

I have networked my computers one is a pc and the other a wireless laptop.
Both running Win XP Home. They have no problem sharing the internet
connection but cannot see each other. Neither can see any other computer. At
one point they could see each other on the PC but when I clicked on the
laptop I received the error "You may not have permission to use this network
resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have
access permissions.
The list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available."
I also cannot ping the laptop from the PC
I am a newbie at this and have been reading knowledge base articles for days
now and am no farther ahead. Would appreciate any help anyone has to offer.
My frustration level is reaching its end.
Thank You
Barb


thank you

Since you've been "reading knowledge base articles for days", I won't
give you links to any more. However, it would be useful for you to
go through MVP Hans-Georg Michna's troubleshooter here:

http://www.michna.com/kb/wxnet.htm

This will take you through step-by-step and help you narrow down the
issue. After you've gone through the troubleshooter, if you need more
help then post back to this thread and tell us the results.

Thanks Carey & Malke...finally got everything working great. Turns out Norton
Security running on the laptop was the culprit. One of the first things I
tried ..didn't work until I uninstalled it altogether. Anybody having same
problem I recommend uninstalling all firewalls before trying anything else.
Cheers
Barb

Good afternoon Barbara,
I have exactly the same problem. Would you please tell me how to
uninstalling the firewalls, step by step? Do I have to do this on both
desktop and laptop?
Thank you,
Antoine

If you are running a third party firewall then goto control panel and choose
add/remove programs and remove your firewall.

If you are using sp2's firewall, goto control panel and choose windows
firewall and turn it off.
