One way networking...

  1. I've got 3 computers at home, 2 laptops and a desktop. I've got a compaq and
    a desktop downstairs and an Acer upstairs. All connected perfectly fine to
    my wireless router, obviously, wirelessly, to the internet. My compaq and
    desktop can see my Acer and each other but my Acer can only see itself. I've
    got the right workgroup name, i've ran the network wizard, i've checked the
    connection and the numbers and ip's as well as the router permissions to the
    network....nothing....my acer cannot see any other computer but itself but my
    other 2 can see each other and the acer. What should i do?

    send the acer to therapy to see if a good counselor can bring it out of it's
    shell.

  3. 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 it is
    allowed to be shared.
    Basic XP -

    Advanced XP - http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;304040
    Vista - http://www.microsoft.com/technet/network/evaluate/vista_fp.mspx
