    I have two computers with wireless network. One (Host) has ethernet Internet
    connection with DSL modem and wireles is set as soft AP. It runs Windows XP
    64.
    The other (Client) has wireless set as infrastructure and runs Windows XP
    Home or Linux. Both computers can access Internet with no problems. Also,
    wireless physical layer seems fine since ping from one to the other or to
    Internet returns a response <1ms. But file sharing or printer sharing does
    not work. Both computers see the network, Host sees itself in the network
    but does not see Client, while Client does not see even itself there.
    Disabling firewall does not help neither does trying changing user accounts,
    using administrators or guests accounts. I have experimanted with various
    parameters for quite a while but with no luck. I anybody has any suggestions
    I would be very graateful.

  2. Did you try "turning off" firewalls on all of them, and start from there??

    I did try do switch off firewals but it did not help. Could it be that
    Windows XP 64 cannot comunicate with Windows XP Home ?
