    I currently have a host computer running XP Pro SP2 and a Client Laptop
    running XP Home SP2 both connected through the internet with a linskys
    router.

    I have turned off the firewalls on both machines and simple file sharing is
    enabled on the Pro Host. I have run the home network wizard and both
    computers have the same name for their workgroup. My host (Pro) can see
    both computers in the workgroup and can access the laptop's share folder, but
    on my laptop I can see both computers in the workgroup, but cannot access my
    desktop nor see it's shared folders. I have read that it should be a
    firewall problem, but that is off on both machines.

    I have tried turning on and off Internet Connection Sharing on my laptop,
    but nothing.

    Please help,
    Sincelerly - Jay
