home network problem

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?RGVuZXNlVm9u?=, Aug 31, 2006.

  1. I have a desktop connected to a Belkin router connected to a cable modem. I
    also have an HP wireless laptop. The desktop is my host computer. I can
    access internet from both desktop/laptop. This morning I created a home
    network on my desktop and then on my notebook. Didn't play with it at all,
    just saw that it was set up on my desktop/laptop & turned off both systems.
    Turned on laptop and there was no network/workgroup set up on it. My desktop
    has both computers listed as in my workgroup, however when I click on the
    laptop name it stated " __is not accessible. you might not have
    permission....the network path was not found" I tried to set up the home
    network again on my notebook. Still nothing. Do I have to delete my
    network/workgroup (desktop/laptop) on my desktop and start all over or what.
    I can still access internet from my laptop. I tried system restore on my
    notebook and it shows that my workgroup name/etc. will default to that date
    (which I kinda wanted) but I wasn't able to restore. (don't know why since
    the notebook is only a couple weeks old but thats another issue I'm not
    concernedd about at the moment). I just want to share files from each
    computer. Any suggestions

  2. Hi
    Successful Sharing involves some general consideration in Network settings,
    http://www.ezlan.net/sharing.html
    As well as specific adjustment of each computer according to what is allowed
    to be shared.
