Can't interface desktop with notbook

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?U2hhbmU=?=, Jan 23, 2006.

  1. Hi! I have Windows XP (SP2) and Shaw high-speed cable connection to the
    internet. I recently purchased a Notebook (with built in wireless card)
    complete with a MSI router.

    I want it to network with my desktop pc. The host computer (my desktop pc)
    seams to be set up properly to network with the Notebook but for some reason
    I can’t set up the “Notebook†to share data with “The Host†and vice versa.
    I thought I did what was required on each computer but to no avail.

    I have gone to My “Network Places†and have clicked: “view workgroup
    computers†and I get this response: “Contact the administrator of this
    server to find out if you have access permission. The list of servers for
    this workgroup is currently not available.â€

    I don’t know what this means and Shaw Cable say it’s not within their scope
    of responsibly. Can anyone tell me what step I’m missing?

    --
    Kind regards. Shane
