Workgroup....access denied

    I have been struggling for 2 days. I have set up a workgroup. Desktop 1 is
    hardwired and desktop 2 is wireless. I can see icons for both desktops in
    the workgroup but desktop 1 does not allow me to access desktop 2. However
    desktop 2 allows me to open and view desktop 1.

    I have read different threads and have gone through:
    disabled firewall temporarily;no success
    changed restrictanonymous to 0 on both; no success
    went to windows update and downloaded a patch for windows xp server....on
    desktop 2; no success.

    I am assuming that the problem is with desktop 2 since it is an access issue?

    PLEASE HELP!

  2. It could be the permission issue. Have you tried to create the same username
    on both computers? Or this troubleshooting may help.

    Successful Sharing involves some general consideration in Network settings,
