wireless home networking

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?VHJveQ==?=, Aug 14, 2006.

  1. I have 3 computers, 2 desktops and a laptop. One desktop is running the
    Windows XP Home OS and contains a Linksys wireless PCI card, the other
    desktop OS is Windows 2000 and it too has a linksys wireless PCI card, the
    Dell laptop is Windows XP Pro with a built-in wireless card.

    Until a couple of days ago my laptop was connected to the Windows 2000
    desktop with file and printer sharing. The laptop failed the other day and
    continued to give me the blue screen of death, so I was forced to run a PC
    restore and return the laptop to its original state/settings and lost the
    network configuration. I cannot remember how I connected them in the first
    place and cannot seem to get them to speak to one another. The other desktop
    running XP Home edition (children's computer) is a new addition to my home
    and I would like to add it to my network when I can figure out why I cannot
    seem to connect the originals.

    I have run the networking wizard on all 3 computers several times using the
    same workgroup name and they do not see each other. whenever I hit 'VIEW
    WORKGROUP COMPUTERS' i receive a message that reads, 'YOU DO NOT HAVE
    PERMISSION TO ACCESS THIS WORKGROUP'

    This is frustrating, can anyone assist me?
