Sharing with a wireless network

    I have a desktop running XP Pro and two laptops with XP Home. My network was
    fine, but suddenly, I couldn't print from either of the laptops. The XP Pro
    desktop sees the laptops, but they don't see the desktop. However, internet
    access works fine.

    When I select My Network Places/Workgroups I am getting the message that it
    can't connect to \\domain . . . no permission and then that it can't connect
    to the host because there are too many connections. I am way below the ten
    available!

    I finally turned off IPSEC and the McAfee firewall and got the printer
    reinstalled. However, I am still getting the message above when I try to
    view any folders that I have shared.

    Help!
