    I am using a linksys broadband router, and I have two computers. A lapton on
    the living room which is conectes via a ethernet cable to the router and a
    desktop in the bedroom which is conected to the router thorough a motorola
    usb wireless adapter. From the laptop (wired) I can see the desktop and
    access from it the shared files, but from the desktop (wireless) I see the
    laptop, but I can acces any of the files, I always get the message: "
    .......(name of pc) is not accesible you might not have permission to use this
    network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you
    have access permisions. The server is not started"
    By the way both computer access succesfully the internet.
    Thanks

    Make sure the laptop has "File and Printer Sharing" is enabled thru your
    network connections..

    Do you have any firewall on this lapto? If yes, by default, Port 135, 137
    and 139 is disabled, you might have to trust the desktop...

    Hope this helps...
