    I am trying to network my laptop (Win 2000Pro) with my desktop (Win XP Pro).
    I can access files from my laptop with the desktop computer, but cannot
    access files from my desktop using the laptop. The laptop is wireless, the
    desktop wired. When I try to access files using the laptop, I get an "Enter
    Network Password" window that says "Incorrect Password or Unknown User
    Name". No matter what I type in as username or password nothing goes.

    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.
