Sharing Files?

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Larry D Gibbs, Jun 24, 2006.

  1. I have a wireless connection which works fine to access the internet with my
    PC which is wired directly to the router and a Laptop which is wireless. The
    PC is running XP Pro with all updates installed and I also use Norton
    Internet Security. The Laptop is running XP Home with all updates and no
    firewall "the windows firewall is disabled". I cannot not share files with
    either computer, I have run the network wizard on both computers and do not
    have any passwords or logins set. I get the following error message when
    trying to see the network:

    MShome is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network
    resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have
    access permissions.
    The list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available.

    I ran the IPcongiguration cmd and this is the settings for both computers:

    Windows IP Configuration



    PC:
    Laptop:



    Host Name: larry-vghd6pa7 ............... D62VXZ51

    Primary Dns Suffix:

    Node Type: Unknown ................. Hybrid

    IP Routing Enabled: No ................No

    WINS Proxy Enabled: No ................ No

    DNS Suffix Search List: hsd1.wa.comcast.net. .......Same



    Ethernet adapter Local Area Connections:



    Connection-specific DNS Suffix: hsda.wa.comcast.net. .....Same

    Description: Sis 900-Based PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter

    Physical Address: 00-E0-18-A6-6C-62 ..........00-13-46-03-40-38

    Dhcp Enabled: Yes ..................Yes

    IP Address: 192.168.0.146 .................192.168.0.198

    Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 ................Same

    Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1 .............. Same

    DHCP Server: 192.168.0.1 ................ Same

    DNS Servers: 192.168.0.1 ............... Same

    Lease Obtained:

    Lease Expires:



    I also read the comment about the LAN setting for the firewall but really
    don't know how to open the range of addresses.



    If you could give me some guidance it would be appreciated.

  2. I actually figured out what was wrong by myself. It turned out to be my
    firewall settings.
