workgroup computer not accessible

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?Y21vcmE=?=, Jul 17, 2005.

  1. Hello everyone, I have a Dell Pc with windows Home sp2 connected to a Belkin
    router, a Hp desktop with winMe and a wireless netgear card, and a hp laptop
    with win XP home SP2 wireless connected to the home network. they all ping
    each other, they all print, share files is fine, they all have internet,
    everything sound fine BUT when I go to my network places from the client
    computers and click in 'view workgroup computers' and try to access the Dell
    main computer it gives me the message "\\Dell is not accessible.You might not
    have permissions to use this network resources. Contact the Administrator of
    this server to find out if you have access permissions. Access is denied.
    The two wireless clients can access each other, Dell can access the
    wireless, but the clients cannot access the Dell. It is just the DEll icon in
    the Mshome window than denied the access. I even CAN access the Dell computer
    thru the run command from the clients. How can I fix this?

    OK, I don't know but---

    Have you tried searching for the computer from the search results window?

    Do you have something shared on the DELL?

    Does the DELL or the clients, or the router have a firewall that might be
    blocking it?

    If you can ping it, does pinging work with the IP address and the name?

    This is only one of many sites about problems:
