Can't Access Computers on Home Network

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?ZGdmaXR6?=, Feb 18, 2006.

  1. I used the XP Network Wizard to put 4 computers on a home network. After
    completing the process, I can see some of the computers from some of the
    other computers on an inconsistent basis (sometimes 2 computers will be
    visible from computer "A", other times 1 or 3 will be visible. All of the
    computers have Norton Antivirus and several have ZoneAlarm. As a test, I
    have made one folder sharable on each system. Whenever I look at computers
    on the newtork and click on one (to see it's shared folder) I get the
    following message (no matter which of the 4 computers I'm on): " \\Computer
    X is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network
    resource. Contact the administrator of the server to find out if you have
    access permission. The network path was not found." (Computer "X" can be
    any of the 4 computers.) I am the only user on each of the 4 computers. I
    assume I am the administrator. I have tried turning off firewalls, antivirus
    protection and Zone Alarm. The sysems otherwise function properly, i.e., can
    access the internet, etc.

    Hi
    Successful Sharing involves some general consideration in Network settings,
    http://www.ezlan.net/sharing.html
    As well as specific adjustment of each computer according to what is allowed
    to be shared.
