    I have two xp home machines connected to a wireless router network with wep encryption. Both are assigned IPs by my firewall wireless router which acts as my dhcp. Unfortunately, neither computer can see the other. This makes it really inconvenient for file transfers, etc. I tried connecting both machines via a crossover cat5 cable, tried setting up a home network. They can both see each other but receive 'you don't have permission to access' errors when trying to see the shared files on the other machines. Both are set to file and printer sharing...

    Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.
