Workgroup not accessible: wireless network

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?QkRTaGFycA==?=, Sep 8, 2007.

  1. I am unable to access my workgroup/network. I receive the following error:
    Workgroup is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this
    network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you
    have access permissions. The list of servers for this workgroup is not
    currently available.

    Both computers run XP Pro
    Both have Symantec Corporate
    Desktop (host) is wired to the router
    Laptop is wireless, but has internet
    The wireless network wizard completed successfully, but cannot share files
    or printer
    Server is enabled in services.msc

    Thank you for any thoughts...

  2. Hi
    Successful Sharing involves some general consideration in Network
    settings,http://www.ezlan.net/sharing.html
    As well as specific adjustment of each computer according to what it is
    allowed to be shared.
