  1. Hello there, I have just installed a wireless network for a laptop running
    windows xp home and for a computer which is running windows xp pro, both have
    all the latest updates. They are networked up through a wireless router which
    is running on the ip address of 10.0.0.2, the laptop is on 10.0.0.11 and the
    computer is on 10.0.0.14. They both can connect to internet with no problems,
    but when i share documents between them, from the laptop i can't seem to
    access the shared documents on the computer, but the computer has no problem
    accessing the laptop. The network is fully functional i have tested it out
    with an networked game of couter strike with no problems. In theory there
    shouldn't be any problems accessing each other.

    Anyway my question is that is there any built in security measures in
    windows xp pro to stop anyone connecting to it??
