Workgroup wireless connection

    I have a Win 7 laptop and an XP sp3 desktop (LLTD installed) on a common
    workgroup connected by router.
    When the laptop is connected directly to the router it can see the shared
    drives on the desktop, but when it is connected by wireless, it has full
    connectivity, but can not access the desktop shares because of login failure.
    The desktop is visible in the network map and the laptop shares can be
    accessed from the desktop.

    I have to say that this has me stumped and any help would be appreciated.

  2. Hi
    Make sure that the wire is disconnected when you use the Wireless.
    Is it possible that the wire and the wireless present different users to the
    If it so make sure that both users are allowed.

    Thanks for the responses.

    The firewall settings and user should be the same as the laptop is
    disconnected from the router and the wireless switched on while still logged
