    I've had a wireless network working (almost) flawlessly for a long time
    but, all of a sudden, I can't connect to the drives on my other computer
    from my main computer. I can ping the other computer and I can connect to
    the drives on this computer from the other one.

    Here's what I've seen so far:

    The drives on the other computer keep reverting back to $C on the 'share'
    When I try to map a network drive on this computer, the other computer's
    name comes up in the WORKGROUP list but not the individual drives (that used
    to be shared).
    When I try to access those drives using "My Network Places", I'm asked for
    a password. My hotmail name is already filled in but grayed and there are
    not other choices in the drop-down menu. I tried accessing using my hotmail
    password but that didn't work.

    I'm at my wit's end and I don't even know how or why this happened.
