    I have a wire-less home network,which was working find until a couple of
    weeks ago.I have xppro-sp2.I have a linksys router,a desktop computer
    upstairs & a desktop down-stairs with a linksys wire-less card installed.
    I enabled filesharing on a folder on my desktop upstairs & also down-stairs.
    In my network places it only shows my shared folder upstairs.If i click on
    view workgroup computers I can see the icon for the downstairs computer,but
    when I click on the icon it states that I cannot connect because I do not
    have perrmission contact administrator,access is denied.If I assign a drive
    Letter to the same folder using add a network place I then have access to the
    folder on the downstairs computer.
    On the downstairs computer I can see & access all shared folders everything
    is fine.
