    I have two computers running windows xp pro.

    Both firewalls are disabled

    Am using 2 wireless pci adapters, set up in a ad hoc peer to peer network to
    which the both successfully connect

    Both PCs are members of the same workgroup

    On each PC in the workgroups folder, it does not show the other pc in the

    How can this be corrected?

    I believe you might need to enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP for that to work and
    it may take up to 15 minutes for it to appear.

    On the PC right click on the NIC in Network Connections | then Properties |
    Scroll down to Internet Protocol highlight it, then click properties | Click
    Advance | Click WINS (tab) | Check "Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP" | Click OK |
    Click OK | Click Close | Click X

    That got me a little further , now in the workgroup:

    computer A can only see computer A

    computer B can see computer A and Computer B, but computer B gets "access
    denied errors" when trying to access computer A.

    Both systems have the "Computer Browser" Service running.

    What would cause this?
