An odd problem w/ folder sharing

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?SmFzb24=?=, Dec 21, 2004.

  1. I have 3 computers networked together with a linksys wireless router.
    Computer1 is connected to the router and computers 2 and 3 have wireless
    adaptors. Computers 1 and 2 both run windows xp home edition. All compters
    are a part of the same workgroup. The problem is that computer2 cannot access
    computer1 through the network. I have folders shared on computer1 and I
    cannot access them from computer2. However, computer1 can access computer2
    and its shared folders and files. I tried finding computer1 by its name
    '\\Crutchfield' and its current IP address '\\198.####' . When I try I
    recieve the strange message that I don't have permission. Why would this be?
    Computer1 is on the network and this is just odd.

  2. On both PC's do the following:

    click Start, click Run, type:
    net user guest /active:yes (and hit enter)


    Then, click Start, click Run, type:

    control userpasswords2 (and hit enter)

    Click Guest, click Reset Password and then click OK without entering a new
    password.

    Finally, download and install this registry patch on both PCs and reboot for
    changes to take effect:
