    I have a desktop connected to a netgear wireless router connected to a
    broadband connection. My laptop connects to the router via a wirless
    connection. Both computers are working and have broadband connection. I did
    have them set up as a network with shared folders on each (mapped as network
    drives), I re-installed XP on my laptop and now can't get the network to work
    and so can't access files and folders on each other computer or the shared
    printer. My workgroup name is the same on both. The desktop hasn't changed
    and still shows both computers in the 'view workgroup comuters' option but
    the 'laptop' gives the error message 'laptop-hsadasd is not accessible. you
    might not have permission blah blah blah...' the laptop name is correct - if
    anyone out there has any ideas please help it is driving me mad! Thanks very
    much in advance.

    Do you have a firewall installed If eys, try to set it in such way that both
    computers in a trusted zone. Check firewall settings on both computers. Also
    you can open network neiborhood and try to see computers. It is possible that
    you need to log in on a network with a password. Good luck.
