    Have 3 pc's,
    #1 "Tower1" XP Home sp2, hardwired to a NetGear Wireless router.

    #2 "Acer Laptop" XP Home sp2, using Netgear PCMCIA wireless card

    #3 "Tower2" XP Pro sp3 D-Link usb wireless modem

    Tower1 has SharedDocs on Laptop + SharedDocs on Tower1
    It also mentions"Samba 3.0.13 ((none))

    Acer laptop has SharedDocs on Laptop + SharedDocs on Tower1
    also DG834GUv5 Gateway

    Tower2 Has SharedDocs on Laptop + SharedDocs on Tower1
    + SharedDocs on Tower2


    All have same workgroup MSHOME
    Can use printer connected to Tower1 from T2 and laptop

    Why doesn't the Laptop and T1 have folders for Tower3
    Hope I haven't confused the problem.

    If I wanted to delete what I have, and start from scratch...How?

    Any help appreciated ...Ian

    I definately have confused the issue.

    Two desktops and one laptop in house
    Can share between laptop and PC#1 and vice versa.
    PC#2 will share with other two, but not in reverse.

    PC#1 XP Home sp2
    PC#2 XP Pro sp3
    Laptop XP Home sp2

    Netgear Wireless modem, Ethernet connection PC#1
    Other two wireless

    Thanks .. Ian
