File Sharing between Wired and Wireless Computers in a Home Network
Posted on 2003-11-29
I had a Desktop (running Win XP Pro) with Cable Modem. I recently purchased two laptops (both with XP Pro) and D-Link DL515 802.11b router. I connected the cable modem to the router and from the router to my dekstop. I then setup wireless cards on both my laptops. Everything works good. I am able to access the Internet from all the three machines.
The only problem is with file sharing. I unable to setup file sharing between the three computers. I am able to access one laptop from another and I am able to access the two laptops from my desktop. But I am UNABLE to access my desktop computer from both the laptops. All three machines have local IPS 192.168. and are part of the same workgroup MSHOME (the default one) If from the laptop, I go to My Network Places and View Workgroup Computers, I am able to see my desktop. But when I double click on the computer name, it says the domain MSHOME is not accessible. What could be wrong and what do I need to do to resolve this issue.
