    I have a wired network at home with two PC that can see each other and share
    data and printers, however I cannot get my wireless PC on my home network to
    see these other PCs. I have total Internet access. Please advise!

    To start, post the results of ipconfig/all on all computers.
    How are the computers connected?
    A good reason is mismatched wireless encryption keys (and you definitely
    should encrypt the messages with at least WPA)

    Thx Jim. I'm at work right now so I can't do the IPconfig, however, the 2
    computers that can see each other are both wired to a router, the router is
    also conneted to the wireless router which my pc is attached too. I will
    post more detail later today.

    You mix-matched encryption keys, what did you mean? Only my pc is wireless
    and I am trying to get my PC attached to my workgroup at home to see data and
    printers of the other two machines.

    Hope this helps. I will also try pinging them when I get home.

  4. Hi
    The Wireless per-se has nothing to do with File sharing.
    If the Wireless computer is on the same network and its Internet connection
    works it is a Sharing issue and Not Wireless issue.
    Check the computer's firewall to make sure that it is Not blocking local
    traffic and sharing.
    In general.
    Successful Sharing involves some general consideration in Network settings,

    As well as specific adjustment of each computer according to what it is
    allowed to be shared.
