    I had to turn off my Origo 8210 wireless router overnight..
    When it was turned back on all the setting were lost..
    Originally I had another machine connected to the router using a ethernet
    cable, however as this is now unavailable I used my laptop to program the
    router this time round.
    All is fine except I can no longer access two of the three other machines on
    the wireless network. I can see them, I can ping them, however if I try to
    see what is on the drives I receive a message to say it is not accessable
    and I do not have the required permission.
    My question is why is this happening? why 2 out of 3? and what can I do to
    fix it please. All the machines are running XP PRO except my laptop which
    has XP Home..
    They were all working fine before I turned off the router.
    Many thanks in advance

    Yes I have Cari, I have also re-done the shared folder on one of them to see
    if that made any difference.
