    Hello all,

    I have two computers connected to a wireless network but they don't see each
    other anymore. Up till yesterday the two systems were able to share files,
    printers etc., now they don't see each other. I checked the following:

    1. Both are in the same workgroup.
    2. Simple file sharing turned off in Windows Explorer on both.
    3. Windows Firewall file/printer sharing checked on both machines.
    4. Sharing enabled for drives and folders on both machines.

    Anyone care to suggest other places to look please feel free.

    Make certain that there is only one firewall program running on each
    computer.

    Hello again,

    I solved my problem reading other posts in this forum. I ran the Network
    Setup Wizard on the local machine and now both computers can see each other
    again.
