    In my home I am running an 802.11b wireless network between a desktop
    PC connected by cable to a Microsoft wireless access point (which is
    connected to a broadband modem) and a laptop with a Microsoft wireless
    PC card. Both PCs are running Windows XP Home.

    After setup, both successfully share the broadband access and a
    printer and My Network Places shows both PCs and the folders and files
    on each that have been designated for sharing. From the laptop I can
    access the desktop, can access and share files on it, and can transfer
    files and data between the two.

    However, from the desktop I can't access any of the shared folders or
    files on the laptop although they are displayed and listed in My
    Network Places on the desktop. When I try to access a folder or file I
    get the Windows Explorer error message "\\ [name of laptop\folder] is
    not accessible. You might might not have permission to use this
    network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out
    if you have access permissions. Not enough server storage is available
    to process this command."

    Any suggestions? TIA

    Check the amount of drive space you have on the desktop PC. The last
    line of your error message tells me this.

    Thanks, but I have more than 11GB of unused space on the desktop and
    more than 45GB on the laptop, so that isn't the problem. What is
    "server storage"?

    Have you created a user on the laptop with the same name and password
    as the user on the desktop?
