    I have both PC's talking, however, when I try to access my "shortcut" from my
    wireless laptop to the desktop of my Main PC, I get the following:
    \\PC Name is not accesible. You might not have permission to use this
    network resouirce. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if
    you have access permissions.

    I have two admin accounts on XP Home SP2 (Main PC).
    Please let me know how I can access my PC desktop from my wireless Laptop..
    Thank you for any guidance

  2. Bufhal,

    This sounds promising. In order for this type of setup to work, they should
    both be joined to the same Workgroup and you must have each machine setup
    with the same account names and the same passwords. You normally cannot use
    the Administrator account (which, sense you are using Home, is not a
    problem). Please double check to make sure that these accounts are
    configured identically and try to connect again.
