    On my laptop I use a wireless adapter and I can receive the internet from my
    router but I cannot use the network to get into my main computer. When I try
    to access the main computer that is hardwired to the router this is the
    message : "laptop is not accessible. You might not have permission to use
    this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find if
    you have access permissions. The network path was not found." When i try to
    access the laptop from the main computer I get the same message.
    It does not matter which laptop adapter I use whether it is Linksys, D-Link
    or Netgear.
    I also have a desktop computer on the network and it works just fine, it has
    access to the main computer and the internet, and the main computer has
    access to the desktop.
    There has to be something on the laptop that is stopping access to the
    network but allowing access to the internet. This is very frustrating

    Your help would be grateful and thanks in advance.
