    I have a Linksys WRT54GX2 wirless router with one wired computer (with
    network printers) and one wireless laptop. If I wire the laptop, I can
    file/printer share and access the internet on both computers. When I go
    wireless with the laptop I can access the Internet but I cannot access the
    other computer or printers.

    I get error says "\\computer name is not accessible. You might not have
    permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this
    server to find out if you have acess permissions. The network path was not
    found."

    Both computers running Win XP SP2. All works fine when wired but not wirless.
    Any help would greatly be appreciated.

  2. Hi
    You have a Sharing problem (I.e. it has nothing to do with wire or wireless
    issues).
    Successful Sharing involves some general consideration in Network
    settings,http://www.ezlan.net/sharing.html
    As well as specific adjustment of each computer according to what it is
    allowed to be shared.
