    I'm trying to send files between two XP pc's, file sharing is turned on in
    both.

    PC-A is connected directly to the router, PC-B is connected with a wireless
    card.

    When I try to send a file from A to B, I get an error saying access denied
    or the file is in use. I can send files from B to A fine.

  2. Hi
    Make sure that the Software Firewall on each computer allows free local
    traffic. If you use 3rd party Firewall On, Vista/XP Native Firewall should
    be Off, and the active Firewall has to adjusted to your Network IP numbers
    on what is some time called the Trusted Zone (consult your 3rd Party
    Firewall instructions.

    If after setting every thing up correctly it does not work on the spot, try
    to reboot all the concern computers, and the Router.
